Good afternoon all.

I am the proud owner of a 2006 k1200r , picked it up yesterday....it only has 15700 ks on the clock.

Could everyone here please advise me on what I need to check on the bike immediatly to avoid future problems ? I presume a change of oil is a must as I dont know when last the oil was changed .....also do I need to change the shaft drive oil ?
Is there instructions and pics to help/show me how to do this ?

I am basicaly looking to rarther take care of things than leaving it and picking up problems later......

All help and advice will be appreciated :teeth

What to do

I always change all fluids when I get a,new to me, vehicle. That would be engine,rear end, brake fluid, coolant, and any other there might be. I don't like problems when I am playing so I go overboard on PM. I also do oil changes at half the recommened intervals. Also I change the rear end oil and trans if applicable every other year. I have not had any kind of problem on the highway since I adopted this program of maintenance. I normally do a 5,000 mile + road trip every year beside the smaller road trips during the year.
