Extreme newbie question

So I bought my brand new rr back in 2011. Had my permit but my insurance was extremely high because of my dui/reckless driving. Fast forward a year later, the bike has been sitting unmaintained. And would like to get back into riding. I need some advice on what I should do maintenance wise before I get back out on the road. My insurance has dropped and going to get registration and another permit for right now till I can do the test. Thanks in advance.

So looking back on it maybe you should have gotten insurance quotes BEFORE buying :P
bike sitting for a year, maybe replace gas, check tires (was it on stands?) and of course check battery; may as well change oil-filter as well. Ride Safe man

oh damn you beat me, same as CBR TIME said

Lube your chain,check tyre pressures, check oil and check the petrol, if the bike has not been run the battery will have to be changed or charged. If you have a battery tender connected then you'll be fine. Also if the bike has not been moved for a year at it hasnt been on stands you may have flat spots on the tyres.

Now that your about to ride please dont even have a single beer and ride and wear your gear.

Tack

Sorry to hear.

Good information thus far. Replace the gas, check the tires (pressure and for cracks), lube the chain, possibly replace the battery if it wasnt on a maintenance charge, do an oil change ....hit the road.

dont forget to wheelie the biek the moment you get it out on the road... that is the easiest way to break it in

But in all seriousness be safe man and like they said above dont ahve a single beer before you hop on your bike not worth it to either end up in jail or the hospital...

Everything that is being said is spot on. Maybe invest in an MSF course as well.

Everything is spot on to what I originally though. Only thing I'd throw in is check the brakes. I live in a high humidity area and i had a bike sit for a summer and the rust started building up :/

Take the MSF and you should get a discount on your insurance

It would be a good idea to clean the injectors. Pop em out spray some carb cleaner through em. When I got my 06 it sat for a few months. The top row of injectors weren't spraying right. Carb cleaner got em spraying again then I ran 90 octane recreational fuel (no ethanol) with seafoam for like 5 tanks.

It improved the gas milage from 30mpg to 38mpg and made it run smooth.
