95,000 service on my RVF

A place to bang on about subjects close to your heart that affect us all as 400cc riders. general banter is rife, however rudeness and abuse seem to be the norm, If a bit wet round the ears best go play elsewhere. Auto pruning of items 31 days and older

95,000 service on my RVF

Post by manicguitarist » Sun Feb 02, 2020 10:34 am

Just got my baby back from a very trusted mechanic for a 95,000 km service.

He said the internals of the engine were immaculate-and he’d have estimated 10,000 to 15,000 max on it.

They don’t make them like this any more.

Look after your RVF and she’ll last forever.
:peace:

Would your 'very trusted mechanic' happen to be called Noel Fletcher?

Oil, filters (oil & air) , hub bearings, swing arm bearings, valves, spark plugs, carb balance, general check over and then a full valet. The coolant was changed last year...so no need for that.
