    why won't you have a manual? that is the first thing you should get if you plan on doing your own work.
    I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to bullshit.

      Owners manual, factory service manual, torque wrench with a lowwest setting of 5 lb-ft, plus standard metric sockets, a 6mm allen-key socket, and a set of loose metric allen-keys or T-handled metric allen key set (on sale right now for $3.99 at Harbor Freight).

      What you should have done:
      Everything listed for a 15k service, unless you know for a fact that the bike has gotten it's services done, plus the brake lines, brake caliper seals, brake fluid. Check the tires for age (5 year max), pads for wear, chain for stretch.

      Good luck!

          You have a fan steve!!

          All those things that have been mentioned you can also keep under your seat for roadside maint if need be.

          I keep those and more under my seat..well except for the torque wrench.

            sweet deal...the guy did the most expensive maintenance but as of now all i know is it needs an oil change so that will be the first thing on the to do list

            im buying used and im going to assume that he doesnt have the manual, but i will get a full wrtiup of all the maintenance he has done to it

            thanks for the tool tips i completely forgot about specialty tools
