Valves and did an oil change myself. I took it in for the 600 service and they charged me a grip so now ill do everything myself this isn't my first bike so don't worry fellas I'm a pretty good hands on mechanic but new to a service/maintenance light on a motorcycle. One thing that is not completed is that the maintenance light is blinking and its annoying so I need to get that to reset but before I go to the dealership I want to know if there's a way where I could reset it for future services? I tried to search but nothing came up unless I'm not searching correctly. Please all help is appreciated TIA!On the SBK's there is no way to reset the light yourself, unfortunately. As for the blinking, it will stop here before long and stay on steady. Don't remember the actual mileage when it stops blinking but it's not long. The indicator does nothing and has zero effect when on so...Mine's been on for 2,000+ miles now. Not gonna drive 90 miles to my dealer just to turn out the wrench.,,,

When i hit the throttle hard it bogs down it also wont rev past 6,000 rpm

When you say it won't rev past 6k what happens? Does it bog down and eventually choke itself out?

sounds like the carb needs a good cleaning. Have you replaced the fuel and air filter? If you take the air filter off does it run better or worse?

Considering buying a VFR800Fi year 2000 with only 6000 miles on it, good rubber and looks immaculate. What else should I be looking for fault/wear wise.

With only 6K, look for signs of it being dropped. A Honda with only 6K, is usually not even broken in yet.

Honda vtr250 1999. how many k's between services? does 6000kms sound right?

for a 250 that would seem ok depends on the amount of driving done in a year and what kinda driving but with a smaller engine would have to check more often 6k miles would be around the right limit but also listen to your engine and how it drives is the best indicator as to how the bike is driving and will let you know when it needs a service but if your do things yourself like oil filters and plugs will run grand for ya

I'm having code 16 before start up, sometimes the engine light comes on while running.

a code 15 and 16 is throttle position sensor short circut or stuck open. it will failsafe to the the open position. disconnect connector from the throttle body and ohm out(on the sensor) the blue(pos)/blue-white(neg)( should be 4-6k max) and the yellow(pos)/black-blue(neg) should be 6k max ohm. make sure when you are twisting the throttle that the ohms increase and decrease smoothly and are not jerky. if they are higher, replace sensor. also check that the yellow/black-blue wires in the connector wire side only put out between 0.63 and0.73 volts. if its more or less you will need a new fuel control unit.

Looking at buying a 1998 BMW 1000RT w/40K miles on it.

In short, BMW prices are directly proportional to the service history and condition.
Personally, I think $6200 is high. I bought a 2000 model RS with 15K miles for $3200, full service history, lots of factory extras - panniers, top box, tank bag, screen, seat, etc. It had a little road rash on one fairing panel, but that was $300 to put back to perfect.
I would expect to pay around $6K for a similar vintage LT, not an RT. IF it was mint, maybe 6K is the right price... I would look for between $4500-5500 for a tidy one - good tires/brakes, great exhaust, immaculate paint, full BMW service history, warranty.

Buying tips

i'm about to purchase a 03 749 w abt 4000miles. mostly stock except for some CF add-ons. used to ride a monster400(yes they do have 400cc monsters!) back in my country and the maintenence wasn't costly. was just wondering if you guys could offer me some advise mostly abt cost of maintenence. i would love to be mentally prepared for the costs involved..(tried to find these info in the forums but couldnt really get a definite answer) 1)i understand the 6K service would be up soon. any rough estimates on the cost of it? 2) is it about the same for the 12k service? 2) is the 6K and 12 K service(and so on every 6K) the only major ones the 749 need? 3)in between these how often should i send her for a regular servicing? (change of engine oil, spark plugs, etc)? any help would be truly appreciated and cant wait to get back on a ducati!,First piece of advice, use the search function on this forum. You will be flamed otherwise. This question has been asked a million times. The cost of servicing a Ducati will depend on the state of the bike. Generally, however, all interval services between 6000 and 12,000 miles will cost the same as any Japanese four. The major services, and this includes the 6000 and 12000 services will generally cost you between $600-$1200. This is a ball park figure, as this depends: (a) on the honesty of the mechanic; and (b) things like the valve clearance and age of the belts and the general condition of the bike. As you have a 2003 749 with 4000 miles, expect the next service to be at the higher end of the scale because the bike will have to have the belts, fluids, valves and everthing checked or changed. This is because Ducati specify their maintenance schedule in terms of X,000 miles or 2 years, whatever comes sooner. This schedule is repeated throughout the bikes life and as time goes will come to include such things as the forks, etc. I suggest that you do not skimp on any of this. However, Ducati's and especially the 749/999 bikes are not ticking reliability time bombs. If you look after your bike it will last you for many years to come, providing a fantastic ownership experience along the way. I hope this is of some help.,,,
