Maintanence on my '06 GSX-R 600???? Need Suggestions PLEASE!!

Alright, so my bike has been sitting in a garage for over a here without even being turned on. I want to bring it back to school with me in June but I know that I need to get some maintenance done it. Right now, I'm thinking of having a major tuneup done on my bike, but to be honest, I don't know what is in involved in a "major tune-up", yes I know dumb question. Besides that should I consider doing anything else?? Thanks for your help.

So it has been sitting for one year? Did you leave it with all fluids in it (gas, oil, coolant, etc)? What makes you think you need a "Major Tune-Up"? what part of town are you on?

Yea, it's just been sitting in my moms garage for 1 year. I'm only assuming it needs a major tune-up because it hasn't had anything done to it (oil change, etc.) since like 2 months or so before the year it has been sitting in the garage. And yes, all the fluid stayed in the bike.

drain all the gas. look at your throttle bodies for ethanol build up. drain oil and coolant. check air filter for birds nests or mud dobber hives. check tires for cracks and air pressure. check all cables and chain for excessive rust. make sure brakes work good and not spongy. you may need to bleed them. make sure all controls work and maybe replace the battery

Exactly. Do what Honda rider told you. Removing all fluids from the bike and replacing them is not difficult at all. You can do it yourself for like 50 bucks instead of the 300 you will pay in a shop. However, if you don't want to work on it yourself, if you live north go to Motorcycles Unlimited, if you live shouth go to Sunny's.

like they all said, just change the major fluids. if you dont want to change the coolant, you wont need to. if you didnt use any fuel stabilizer when you put the bike up, deff. get a tank of fresh gas into it. and check your chain for rust (hopefully you lubed it before you stored it). If the battery is still in the bike, i would plan on the worst and be ready to replace it. hopefully you'll just need to re-charge it.
