Newbie maintenance questions.

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 2000 model in sore need of some TLC. My question is should I tackle a fork rebuild and a magneto cover replacement on my own or seek profesional help? I am pretty good with auto mechanics but know nothing about motorcycles (yet).

I did read the FAQ's and found a lot more stuff that needs to be done in time but these are the first two on the list, and actually while doing these I can knock off a few of the other recommended fixes.

Thanks for any advise.

Yes the fork seals are leaking on both sides and it may just be me but the right side feels like it goes down quicker than the left.

The forks also have no protection on them and the speedo cable is zip tied to the tube. The bike seems to run great so far, the fluids were clean when I got it but the rest of the maint. looks as though there wasn't any.
