Hey all, my 10,000 is coming up and wondering of any good suggestions for a shop over here on the westside. Also what a decent price should be. I remember seeing some post a while back but could't find em'.
Any help is appreciated, Thanks, Newbee...:punk

I have no idea about the westside but I swear by XTREME. They always hhok me up on price and I get a 10% customer loyalty discount on all parts and accessories just because. They always do good work on my bike too.

Newb - don't bother taking your bike in for a 10K service. Do it yourself.
Brake Pads - Check and/or replace, bleed if necessary
Plugs - Check and/or replace, recommend replacement
Air Filter - replace (clean if aftermarket)
Chain/Sprocket - Check and/or replace
Radiator - Check and/or replace fluid (use this time to switch to water/water wetter if you intend on track days)
Brake Fluid - Check and/or replace
Damper Fluid - Check and/or replace (if your bike has one, would go with a heavier weight this time if you replace)
Idle - Check and/or adjust
Check all bolts (tighten) and hoses (wear/tear)
Change oil/oil filter
Clutch - Check and/or adjust
All in all about 2-3 hours work or a day in the garage with some friends and beer. It will save you several hundred dollars.
No need for checking and adjusting valves, you are not winding that motor to 12K everyday or hitting the track much, so don't worry about it.

Cool, Thanks Loms. This will be the first time for me doing all of this minus the oil change. Any suggestions on plugs? I saw a earlier post where you were talking about some.
