Hi

Just trying to figure out what work to do next on the XB12S.

Bike is an 06 on around 8k.

What is your opinion on serving on an old, low mileage bike?
I do all the regular annual servicing myself, and the wheel / pulley bearings and belt.

Just thinking about the forks at the moment, would you stick strictly to the manual and wait till 10k or service forks due to age now?

Any other servicing you would be looking at doing at this age?

Cheers,

Cheers guys.

I'm slowly working my way though bits to sort. I'll add forks to the list.

I think I'm overdue a visit to Maz!
