Hey Jaxxx,

Your owners manual will give you specified replacement/ service intervals.

Change break pads, Front/Back: When they are worn out, your rears should last much longer than the fronts

Lube your break cable: Your brakes are hydraulic, don't need lubing

Flush your break fluid: Whenever changing brake pads

Flush your coolant: See manual

Wax: A couple of times a season

Make love to your bike when your significant other isn't around: No comment!

Thanks...

Lube your break cable: Brake, never, throttle/clutch, once a year

Flush your break fluid: As needed, when fluid starts to show signs of breaking down, usually yearly

Flush your coolant: once every two, or three or so years.

Wax: My bike rejects wax, I wash my bike bi annually

Make love to your bike when your significant other isn't around: X|

Thanks...

How often (months or miles) do you:

Change your Spark Plugs/wires: 7500 miles

Change break pads, Front/Back: When worn--inspect often

Lube your break cable: Brake is hydraulic--no lubing it.

Flush your break fluid: Per inspection or once per year (CASTROL SRF)

Flush your coolant: every year

Wax: Twice Daily

Air Cleaner: Clean when you change your oil or replace as needed

Clutch Cable: I do it every 1000 miles with dri-slide (will not collect dirt)

Chain/sprokets: Every 500 miles


Make love to your bike when your significant other isn't around: ....

Thanks...



ALL OF THE ABOVE IS FOR YOUR BIKE IN PARTICULAR AND MOST OF IT CAME FROM DIRECTLY FROM THE K7 GSXR750 MANUAL. Some people deviate from the manufacture suggested list by doing stuff sooner such as the brake fluid and coolant, especially if you do track days.

My bike is a 2005 636 with 37,XXX miles. I guess I'm behind on the maintenance. It's never seen a dealership after I rescued it from their grasp.

Flush your break fluid: nope, this winter

Flush your coolant: oh i did this, I did some maintenance --- pics

Wax: I wash, no wax

Make love to your bike when your significant other isn't around: Pathetic attempt to be funny... but as often as possible
