New steel brake lines, brake pads and steering damper (Scott stuff) - March 9, 2013, 11:48 AM

It's for the 06 R6.

If you have any pointers I take!
One week to do the homework and I start next week end.

Also, what would you automatically check / replace when purchasing a used bike?

Chang oil at a minimum. Honestly you should check everything brakes, tired, plugs...

Ok so you should change the oil and filter, check the air filter, check the brake pads, check chain and sprockets for excessive wear, pull a spark plug or two out to check, oh and flush the coolant and flush the brake fluid.

If you don't know the seller and trust what they are telling you (99% of folks) then:

- Change all fluids
- Check the air filter, change if needed
- Check the brake pads
- Inspect rubber hoses
- Inspect under the tank and under the seat for hack jobs
- Check the chain and sprocket. Clean & lube or replace as needed
- Check and tighten all the bolts you can get to, stuff on the forks, AXLES, fairings....
- Go for a ride and blow the dust off the pistons


Download your bikes service manual as well.


More gas, less brake

Axles. Pet peeve of mine
Yo OP, you leftout a bunch of helpful details (did it come from street/ track, have records, miles, etc).
Oil, filter, brake fluid- change
Coolant- flush the system and check the hoses for cracking or brittle feel.
Air filter- clean or replace
Chain- clean and lube, adjust

If the bike came from the street, and is between 10000- 15000 miles then fuck checking the plugs. 15000- 20000 miles; then might be a good idea. However, if you are going to go that deep then you may as well replace them. If they are the standard copper core then they are cheap. If they are iridium then leave them. Iridium plugs should not be cleaned or gapped according to Bosch and NGK. Their duty cycle is about 4 times that of copper core. In a bike that is about 30,000 miles. A car up to 100,000.
Anyhoo, holla if you have any questions.

Thank you!

The bike has 11k mi and comes from a dealership.

Yesterday I bought all the filters and fluids except the coolant that I forgot.

The bike looks very clean from outside at least.

I would think that by check the plugs, he meant check them to see if the bike is fueling ok, not check to see if they need replacement. If it has a stock exhaust and no tuning kit on it, that step would not be necessary. Full exhaust other no tune, then forget checking the plugs as well and get it tuned. Depending on the bike you may be able to get to one of the plugs to check it fairly easily, others not so much.

For speed bleeding- Mi-T-Vac, or equivalent. You can get a generic one from Harbor Freight that I have used a shit ton. Still, after you get get solid fluid out ,I would go with the ol pump, pump, squeeze a few times at the end. I'm just old school....and I like pump, pump, squeeze
At 11k (unless you TRUST the dealer) I would just replace the plugs. If the service department says they were done, and you believe it, then you are cool. I think they are due at 8k.

FWIW, I've bled plenty of brakes and I've never used a formal bleeder. I have a trusty plastic olive container (mediterranean I think, I remember that they were delicious) with the lid drilled to fit a 1/4" hose. I then run the hose to the caliper over the closed end of an 8mm wrench for opening the bleeder, which locks it in place. Not the most scientific approach but definitely cheaper than a formal bleeder.

This, although not the easiest to do with just one person.. so if you have the coin get a bleeder probably worth the $40 or whatever they cost. Also I put speed Bleeders on my 750, highly recommend those too!
