My '02 just turned over 40K and I'm making a list of winter work. Here's what I have so far:

Dissassemble and renew forks as needed.
All Balls bearings.
Brake and clutch fluid.
Air filter.
New coolant.
Lubricate cables?

Am I missing anything?

Brake pads still good?

Then wait for the sun to come out.....

Clean synthetic rear lube already in. New battery this year. Never did the valve adjust. Belts?
Probably should put Freds DVD's on the top of the list!

Gee, with all the things you guys have come up with to check and "rebuild" maybe the poor fellow ought to just trade it in for a new one :lol: :lol: Don't forget maybe some of this stuff is still warranty....
