What can I replace this with?
Thanks! I changed all my fluids right away (they were filthy - bike had 45 hours and I'm pretty sure nothing had been changed), and got my first greasing done. Now it's the littler things when I have free time. I think my rattling might actually be coming from the plastic on the right side of the bike hitting part of the exhaust heat shield - it looks like there is some foam installed there but it has worn thin. Is there a standard type of adhesive foam people use for parts that might hit?Understood, when our group has a new rider they have a ton of questions.
They tend to panic that some is failing, those of us on old bikes are like "nah thats normal" haha
One thing I will say, is do not ignore things like the bike being hard to shift or fluid change intervals and you will be fine.
I ordered the clip puller tool from Quad Logic and it came with a bag full of clips. I do have a couple that seem loose. Do you have a recommended foam to replace the stuff that seems worn with?
