Ok so I have had my bike for three months now.....

When I bought it being a total newby I got the following add ons:

- Bark busters
- Bash plate

I happily went off riding thinking I had it all covered :unsure: ... It wasn't long before I realised that I also should have gotten radiator guards (bent them already) :ohmy: .

So this week I have finally gotten my crap together and ordered a set of radiator guards from Force.

On the to get list is the following:

- Fan
- Steg pegz

Up until now it has all been about the riding for me but this Saturday I am going to spend the morning in the garage with the bike doing the following:

- clean air filter
- oil change
- fit radiator guards (nice black pair)
- take of back tyre and get new one

Weirdly enough I am actually looking forward to it. :)

So am I missing anything else?? (Seriously why dont they tell you in the shop to get radiator guards!! :S )

Hi Rach,
Just a few simple ideas come to mind from me

Brake Snake comes in handy if you like to have the odd rest here & there :whistle: (better than bending a rear brake pedal back or into the side of your case) :S

Maybe some Case savers/ guards, depending on availability for your bike and how much coverage your bashplate gives in that area,,,

Rimlocks if you haven`t got them already will help in securing the tyres to stop spinning and tearing valve stems at lower presures,,,

Never hurts to carry a spare front brake & clutch lever just in case the barkbusters fail or something jams in behind them in the event of an off ,,,, it can happen :unsure:

Good to hear your keen on the shedtime, It`s a great way to get familiar with your ride and also helps you to be more handy on the trail if the shit hits the fan and you need to fix something to get home ;)

Enjoy
And ignore Teza ,, He is hard done by in that area,,, obviously :laugh: :P

Well rad guards didnt arive in time for weekend but I noticed one is bent so I will have to get that sorted first anyway.

Eagle thanks for the tips I will definately look into some of your suggestions.

I took the back tyre off and took it to mca Auburn today to get it changed ... yes I was going to cheat and have them do it..... but when I got down there they said they dont do it on a Sunday :angry: would have been nice if they told me that on the phone!! :angry: :angry:

But as I keen to ride tommorrow I ended up getting a friend to help me change it this afternoon ..... Huskybloke ... i reckon changing a tyre is a crap job anywhere never mind out on the track !! :S that is HARD AS!!
