Definately Check out Patrick and his crew @ Motorcycles Unlimited...

Chain- Clean and lube
Chain- Make sure it doesnt get too loose.
Oil and filter
Tire pressure
Air Filter- i see allot of people that forget that... To me it is VERY imprtant



Welcome to MH... Keep an eye out in the events section.... Lots of great people on this site. As stated before.. Ask questions, and remember... ATGATT(all the gear all the time)

Keep the shiny side up

Protect yourself! Helmet, jacket, gloves, and boots.

Good luck! As Cali said, don't be shy-- come to the northside to some rides!
Well said.

Also, learn to change your oil. It's the easiest maintenance you can do by yourself!

If you take care of your bike, it will last forever. You may never get tired of the 250, but if you do they are pretty easy to sell.

Congrats, and good luck! Welcome to MH.

Where would be the best place for a girl to go if she wants to learn motorcycle maintenance?
hang out with track guys and ask a lot of questions. Men are surprisingly patient when it comes to teaching girls who are mechanically handicapped.
