Default What maintenance should I do on my bike?

My bike has 20k miles and I am wondering what I should change? I already changed the oil, sparkplugs, air filter, it has new chain and sprockets and the battery is good.

Is there anything I am missing out on. I am thinking my cct might need to be changed and the fuel pressure regulator.

If it ain't broke...don't fix it. Spend that hundred bucks on beer. Don't need to change the CCT till the rattling starts to drive you crazy, and the FPR can wait till it fails too. But you should back flush the cooling system. Check the brakes too, when you do them, drain and replace the fluid (not necessary, but there might be some sht in there).

your right...lol. But the FPR feels like it might be bad because the gas goes quickly.

I just did an overhaul on my bike @ 21k. Mechanically, I did:

- Oil change.
- Coolant flush.
- Brake pads and fluid.
- Cleaned fuel injectors and inspected fuel system.
- Cleaned air filter (I have a K&N, if you have stock it will need to be replaced not cleaned).

I did spark plugs last year when I customized my bike a ton, so I didn't do it this time, but it doesn't hurt to check. Same with everything above - if you've done them recently, or they don't need changing, don't bother.
