Hi there , great bike  by the way.... Okay so you just bought a nice bike, the best thing to to is to assume that it hasn't been done, One thing is for sure the bike shop 9 times out of 10 will not spend much on a trade in and people that sell their bikes usually don't service them before they sell them which leaves you in limbo land so, if the bike is running well then great buy your self a new oil filter and oil , (check owners manual or ask at the bike shop when you buy the oil but if it was me i would used the Motul full synthetic considering the amount of miles the bike is only just run in so she will be a bit tight.
To check the oil it is easy .
First kick her over and let her run until she's at operating temperature, (don't rev it hard or any thing let it do it by itself, once this is achieved , stop the bike , put the bike on its dual stand (if fitted) if your bike has not got one then hold the bike level , now on the motor there is a black twist grip plug , with finger grab face on it , unwind it out and you will see a dip stick , on the dip stick there is two markings , one is the low level the other is the fill level , anywhere below  half way should be topped up no higher than the top mark on the stick, remember the bike must be level,
To change the oil and the oil filter its just a matter of placing the bike on its main stand ( again if your bike only came with the side stand it means that the drain plug will be located on the left side of the bottom of the motor and is usually easy to find) and in most bikes they design the fairing around it so you don't have to remove any covers , and same for the oil filter ,
I hope this info helps you , if you need a more in depth look at how to let me know 
Regards

My wifes 1995 kawasaki gtr 1000 (concourse, US import) wont go over 65 mph. Any ideas?


Hi Bvicario:
That bike should be a real performer.
I'd start by doing a full maintenance checkup:
- Air filter
- Spark plugs
- flush carb(s)
- fresh fuel (add conditioner like "sea foam"
- oil change
Then run it a bit and see what happens.
Check maintenance history - have the valves been checked?

It may be time for a visit to your favorite Tune up shop.
Cheers

Where do you add oil


Look on the right side where the oil level site glass is. There is a chrome cover to the left of that which is held on by two bolts. You have to remove that cover to add oil. Ride your bike for a few minutes to get the oil warm,it's NOT a good idea to let it just sit there running since its air cooled. Shut it off and let it sit for a little to allow the oil to run back down; then make sure the bike is level when you check the site glass. A mechanics mirror, or someone sitting on the bike holding it upright is helpful. Do NOT go over the full line ,just below it won't hurt. It holds just over 4 quarts .

I just got a new keeway superlight 123 the mat black one I've put 600kil on it and there is a knocking coming from the motor its getting loader can you tell me what it is and what i should do the bike...


If the bike has a Warranty I would recommend taking it in for servicing, Have you changed the oil on the Bike? I would check the Oil level and If low Add oil. An oil change Never hurt anything! Hope this helps!

Best Wishes and Good Luck!

What does a full tune-up consist of?


"Tune up" would mean engine tuning only
plugs
airfilter
valve clearances
and possibly check the carb sync

"service"
change or check all fluids and oil
new oil filter
check and inflate tyres
check wheel bearings, swing arm, head bearings
adjust chain.
check battery and all lights
check brake wear
road test
check for oil leaks
check for loose bolts
and may be a couple of other things, depending on milages and overall bike condition

extra would be carb overhaul, new brake pads or wheel bearings etc


The problem is some repairers may short cut a few steps, put in some new plugs and give it a big rev for a tune, and change oil and filter for a service.

Best to get an itemized quote first so you both know what is expected and how much.

If your going to do it yourself, chase down a manual and work your way through
