I'd just go with oil and filter M8,do a plug change at about 10000, me thinks:smoke:

cus thats all ive done me yamrah books says - check the plugs, clean and check adjustment !so i checked them - there still there! change the oil ! after a day ! and 20 miles riding round Leicester for a filter wrench ! :burnout:

I change the a/f every 6000 milesOil and filter every 3000 milesPlugs every 6000 - 10000 miles, Brake fluid every 3000 miles, makes a huge difference if you do this.I would prefer to over service it, particulary with oil and filter as the clutch uses the engine oil and town use hammers the clutch and gears so more chance of deposits...always much smoother after a change. I also use 15w-50 oil all in a blade 98 model with 10,000 miles, i cover 500 miles a week.

Nah, 10K is nearer the mark. Knacked plugs arnt harmfull justmake it run crap, You find the fuel consumption goes up when there knacked.My Fz750 10 to 15k on the same plugs, its very light on them. Whip one out , if it looks worn bung a set in. Bet it dont though!KFz

It says check, clean and gap. Is that English enough for ya?

the full manual says that the plugs should be changed every 8000 miles so thats what I've been doing.

then change em ! on me next oil change ! English whats that then?
