Lets talk about suspension. Suspension technology in most recent years has grown incredibly better. Fork settings have become so precise it can take a rocket scientist to figure it out. Do not attempt fork tuning or wheel truing on your own. Suspension changes must be done by a professional diagnostic technician. Engines have changed over the years but nothing like what Showa (with Honda) has been accomplishing on super complex forks. Weight of the rider, style of the rider and overall ability of the rider must be considered. In the racing world, these settings are protected like the ancient Coke formula! Upper seals on these forks are normally the first item to fail or leak. Remember this leak is like a blown radiator with big trouble ahead. The violent pounding these forks and wheels take is shocking to learn about.
Oil, air and filter changes are easily done by the owner of the bike but steer clear of the suspension issues or you will be sorry.
Tires are very important and many times replaced way too late. Reasonably priced, it is somewhat perplexing why riders and owners wait so long on a replacement. Keep in mind these tires are what separates you from the gravel, dirt, bumps, jumps and any other hard object you might fall on.
