I know this is a maintenance question but I'm looking for a little local information. I went to clean my chain yesterday and noticed that it's way too long. There's a bit of kinking too so it's time to get a new chain. The chain maintenance info on this board seems pretty detailed and doesn't look too hard (lol perhaps I should mention that I'm a noobie and haven't worked on my bike much yet). Should I attempt this on my own? Any suggestions where in TO I should get the chain and tools? Or should I take the bike to Rev Cycle (any rough estimates on price)?,Depending on your skill and comfort level you can probably tackle this job OK, here are some rules (I'm making up early Saturday morning without the benefit of coffee) Buy the best quality chain you can buy, (x or o ring) If the chain is screwed chances are your sprockets are too (yeah I know $$$) It's a good time to go up in the rear or down in the front (sprocket teeth, don't do both) if your bike has a single swing arm forget it (tools stands etc too much hassle adjusting probably not worth it just take it too the dealer unless your very determined and are investing in the tools and time etc) otherwise no biggee. Now so your chain lasts don't over adjust, unsprung the chain will appear loose get some else to sit on the bike as you check the chain tension all the way through the suspension travel check chain and sprocket alignment (laser, eye ball whatever) sometimes shims or other pieces go missing (especially when chain have kinks or wear prematurely) chain wax is your friend, lube it hot and use a clean rag to get excess and clean sprockets.,,,

I have some popping upon deceleration. There also is not the response that I used to have. It will not sit and idle like it used to. It runs at high speeds ok. I thought it might be dirty carbs, but they...

Rough running above idle


What maintenance have you done? Changed the plugs, air filter, oil, and such? I would get some sort of fuel treatment to run through the gas tank and carbs. This should clear up any partial clog in the fuel system.

Service light


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.,,,
