  1. SS lines (front & back)
  2. Brake Pads (front & back)
  3. Brake Fluid
  4. Coolant
I currently do not have to knowledge () and possibly tools to install and change these things. Is there anyone willing and able to help guide a young Padawan? I am trying to learn to do some basic stuff on my own.

I am currently in Lake Jackson and I have a 06 Kawi ZX636. I can travel or work in my hot and small garage. Willing to buy whoever some beer....or we can drink beer while doing it....any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I don't mess with brake installation, that's a life or death situation if you don't do it right.

Patrick did my ss brake lines, bleeding the fluid, etc.

lots of people...thats why they have places like brake check and meineke

it's simple and common sense but some folks don't have tools and resources to do it...and some make so much money that they would rather pay some one else do it

If you are not sure take it some where like mentioned above.
But if you have some mechanical aptitude and want to learn how to work on you own bike.

Spend the $ 75 to $ 120 and buy the service manual from your dealer.

Good Luck

and there are many that THINK they know what they are doing but dont know the differences in systems, what certian vibrations are contributed to, torque necessity of the rotors, checking mass thickness etc.

Many can get by with general knowledge but that's also what gets some in trouble when it comes to 'squeaking by' repairs.

Thanks for all the offers and suggestions. I have the service manual, but I would still like guidance on some basic things. I've gotten some great help from a few on here. I might just do everything but the pads. Thanks again. I'll try to post up pics when I can.

Thanks!

wow you seriously do not mean that do you ? Trust me I believe she has just as much if not more knowledge about motorcycles than anyone I know yet. You need to wise up. 1 yr experience on a bike and you think you're smart?

Exercise caution with the lines. Bleeding the brakes is far more important. If you submerge the drain hose from the calipers into brake fluid while pumping the fluid can back track when cracking the bleeder and tends to bleed alot quicker.

Please tell me you are not serious... did you just call me a lady?
You are welcome to sit in and learn a few things too... I love teaching people how to do their own work.
