Any helpful tips and warm fuzzy tricks to extend life would be appreciated!!! Also leaking oil and didnt used too so any ideas? Thanks beemer studs!
Isnt that 75K and not 175K....

Sounds like clutch. If so. Is that a standard wet clutch like most bikes? Understand we are dirt bike guys are look at manual only as a last resort.... and sometime not even then...

You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms
