It depends on your riding. My WR has never had anything done other than a oil change and lubing.

On my CRF I'll watch the valves a little closer. Change the oils OFTEN and watch there levels.

Tear the bike apart and lube everything.

Lastly...use the search. Most of your question have already been asked. But hey, it never hurts to ask :)

Don't worry about the maintenance at this time since it's new. Ride it for a month or two then start worrying about it. Other than that, just change your oil every 2-3 rides and check your spokes. :)

oops....one more thing....

Adjust your chain slack when you see that it's loose (since it's a stock chain).

I know this has been posted a ton but don't forget to add the correct amount of tranny fluid. The check bolt hole is not accurate. So just add the amount specified and you are golden. :)

I would lube the swingarm, steering head, and linkages swith a quality grease before you even ride it. The amount of grease from the factory is little if any and there grease is substandard. Also, check your valves and decompression adjustment. I did all this sbefore I ever rode my '03 and have not had any problems yet.
