Question about 2008 kawasaki Ninja 250R
I bought an 09 Ninja 250 in September, and barely rode it before storing it over the winter. Now a friend is telling me I have to have the first service done, but I only have 250 miles on it.
As carbon particles accumulate in the oil, the oil will become more acidic, and it is wise to change it before storage. That said, your bike is barely broken in, I wouldn't worry about it.
Consult you manual, you may want to switch to a synthetic. Pay attention to If your gearcase/clutch uses the same oil sump as your engine, this may limit your choice of oil.
You should follow your manual with the adjustments & such if possible (chain, etc.) especially as things are new and just starting to settle in. Most of it can probably be done by you and your friend with some basic tools. You'll save yourself a lot of $$$. Also you may want to pick up a service manual.
