    I have a 2015 with 57,000 miles on it, had from almost new, was a demo bike first. Had the 3rd valve service an all the valves still in spec, done a few things over the years, nothing major.

    I did a bit of a breakdown of the problems and things I’ve changed, have a read, and that was before the last valve service at 55,000 miles, any questions, just ask.

    What are the things that i should care about rather than maintice ? I really love my bike but also afraid because in Turkey 1 euro is 16try. So if it causes me a problem costs 1000 euro it will be like 16000 euro for me :(

    The main one was the exhaust valve seized and the bike won’t start if it does, take the black cover off and spray with WD40 when hot from time to time, will stop it sticking. If the cam chain starts to rattle, fit a manual one. Mine got louder after about 24,000 miles.
