Thanks for looking after it.

He Pm'd me, and I would have been able to help, but my phone is down, so my timing with kids, phone replacement issues, was going to be a little spotty timing wise.

So, is it mostly simple maintanance, we can help/show how to do, or does he need to actually replace parts. like steering head bearings, or rotors? OR just a lot of both?

Good luck Salik.

head bearings looked wore out (movement when rocking the bike with the front brake locked), brake fluid needed to be flushed, front master cylinder was jb welded to the bracket. No clue on the rotors, they appeared "smooth", but no telling if they are warped.

And no problem dude. I suggest hitting up Motorcycles Unlimited for that basic maintenance class. You'll learn a bunch for sure.

Good on ya dbuck!
That was a good thing to do and potentially might have saved him from an injury or worse.
