How do i adjust my chain?
Firstly you have to put your bike on a rear paddock stand or if you dont have one you can tip the bike tawards the left sie while on the stand, then undo the rear wheel little so the wheel can move backwards and forwards. Now you you will see one the end of the swingarm a bolt with a nut on each end, ones a 10mm and the others a 11mm, tighten the 10mm upuntil lthe chain becomes tighter, you have to do this on both sides, BEWARE, you have to have both sides on the same number of line on the guide which is behind the bolt wit the 2 nuts on or the wheel will be lop sided, lastly tighten all the bolts up and test the wheel out by rolling the bike up and down, if it sounds normal your sorted, if not undo the bolts and adjust on either side.
I want to change my gearbox oil but dont know how?
Firstly remove the right hand fairing, Then remove the filler cap indicated by green arrow (see picture). place a pan underneath to catch the oil, unscrew the drainer screw located behind the black sub-frame, indicated by the yellow arrow, the oil should now be draining out. gently tilt the bike over to insure most the oil is drained.
Now replace the drainer screw, The take out the screw in the center indicated by the red arrow.
Once you have removed the screw fill up the transmission oil into the top hole (green arrow) until it starts to come out the center hole. Make sure the bike is sitting upright and not on the sidestand to ensure the correct amount of oil is added.
Once the oil is in replace the screw and cap, then put the fairings back on.
