What else should I put on the list?

I bought a 2005 adventure a month ago with 2500 miles on it.

My wife and 3 month old will be gone for a week to visit friends in Florida at the end of this month. I'm planning on working on the bike every day while they are gone.

Here is the list of what I have planned, flexjets, drain holes in swingarm, trim rear mudguard, oil change, check all other fluids, sidestand relocate, install fork bleeders, and possibly a New clutch slave cylinder.

What other maintenance/preventive maintenance would you guys recommend I do while I have it out of service for a week?

This bike is my daily driver so I like to limit the number of times I have it apart.

Thanks for the input

Update the water pump shaft with CJDesigns kit. Grease steering head bearings. Replace air filter with either a cleanable one or CPR. It can go on and on.

Oil drain hose!

If you have a skid plate, maybe do the stud conversion?

990 style dual brake lines vs. cross-over line. I would do this even if keeping the low fender. While you are doing the CJ water pump shaft, flush, flush, flush the radiator and block. Clearly you are reading the HOW given that you are trimming the rear mud flap and drilling the swingarm, you might also want to read about the TPS while you are messing with the carbs.

Sounds like a fun week to me, enjoy!

I thought about the water pump but didn't know if it would be necessary yet as it only has 3400 miles now. I didn't know if the age of the bike would make it go bad or if it was the mileage. Anyone have any experience with this?

Oil drain hose is a good idea. I don't have a skid plate yet but will get one in the future, I'll do the studs then.

Is the brake line cross over necessary if I'm not going to be riding in the mud? Isn't that when you usually break the fender?

Thanks for the input guys.

Anyone else have any other items I should look at while I'm doing it?

Just me

If I has a free pass for a week, I'd be out riding it every day!

The service stuff will always be there, enjoy that thing

You MUST change the WP Seal to the grey one. That bike probably still has the old brown one. You can blow off changing the shaft for now. I've seen the stock shaft and new seal go 20k miles or more.

This bike was supposed to get a valve check at 600 miles. I'll bet that wasn't done. You may want to check the valve clearance.

Lower the floats to 3.5mm, check the TPS voltage, clear out the SAS and Charcoal canister, re-route gas tank vents. If it has slip-on mufflers, check the jetting, don't go crazy with big jets.

Yeah I thought about checking the valves but the PO was had the dealership do all the tsb's and they put all of the add ons for him.

I'm going to call the dealership tomorrow and see if they checked them or not.

The canister has already been removed. But I think the SAS is still in.

Yeap get to know her first, agree with the guys.....take her out on a date

Also with some spanner time just grab a beer or wine or Rum helps, sit down on a crate (for beer) and just check all the bolts, chain tension, brake pads, and generally inspect her ... this gets to know her too, check for any bolts with a bit of rust or dirt that would indicate fretting or losness.

Taking the time out to do the above could save a lot of grief down the track, this all taken with advice given above..

Yeah that is tempting. Maybe I'll ride the first few nights and work on it the next few nights.

Make sure you have no issues with the loosening of your bolts that secure your clutch plates. They can back out if not properly thread locked and torqued. Numerous instances of this happening and the aftermath is not pretty.
