Hello Gents,

??1-Pearl is nearing 4k and based on the owners manual she is due a service at that time. The manual calls for some inspections but an oil change is the only thing that's done. Should I have it serviced or just changed the oil? I am running a GIpro, Fi200R, Stock intake and filters and exhaust w/scorpion tips, should i change the plugs? If so what should i go with? When i change the oil whats the best recommended brand and type.

??2-i noticed with Onyx, there is an oil mist that comes from the tail pipe. What could be the cause and what can i do to remedy it? He is running cobra swepts, Fi200R, stock intake and filters.

Don't mean to hijack your thread, but I'm going to run a very similar setup to your mods (in your area) and was wondering what your Fi2000 settings are? Not sure if you posted in the thread about it.

Thanks!:bigthumbsup:

you can put a colder plug in if your 9 is detanating or pinging on hard exceleration as that will happen sometimes to our bikes after we install the Gipro so need to some do not as for the oil out of the tail pipe i have no idea but i`m thinking it isn`t good when you start pushing oul out the tail pipe broken rings maybe idk just guessing a bit there
