Hey all,

Finally got my bike. 82 GL500 bike runs pretty strong, but I don't know when any services have been performed. So my question is, what maintenance should i do first? I'm definitely buying a new battery and tires, but don't know where to go from there. All advice is welcome. Thanks.

Change all fluids, replace the brakes if they don't stop well. I get tires from Motorcycle Superstore online and batteries can be found at walmart or better places depending on price you want to pay.

Download a copy of the factory service manual from here and go through the lubrication and maintenance procedures in chapters 2 and 3.



Be especially careful not to skip the valve and cam chain tension adjustments.

Bridgestone Spitfire S11. Nicest tires I have ever owned. Should get 14,000 miles on the rear but I'm pretty close to that on mine and it still looks near new.
