Please help me out. I have a 08 CBR 600 RR and I am in the Army. I have been deployed for almost a year and will be returning home shortly. What I need help with is, what I should change out on my bike, i.e. fluids and such and what type I should get. I put a fuel saver mix in before I left and the bike has been ran about once a week for about 10 minutes at idle. Also I put it up on front and rear stands so the tires won't have flat spots. Thanks for the help!

i agree with awd, just cause the bike was ran doesnt mean the battery was charged. it needs to be above 4500 rpm to start charging. but it might be ok. gla your coming back home. thanks for serving our country.

Don't forget to check your tire pressure before you go riding.

Grease the chain a little and get it worked in on an easy first few minutes out.
Mine was sitting for about 2 months and the chain had about two links that were a little stiff. 5 mins and all was good.

Physically look the entire bike over. A sitting bike may have had visitors.....

Change the oil and oil filter
Get that old shitty gas out and put some new fresh gas in
Check the brakes, make sure nothing is seized
Check the throttle, make sure nothing is seized
Check the clutch, make sure nothing is seized
Charge the battery
Lube the chain, check the tension
Check your tires over and adjust pressure, they will be low
Wipe her down. Even a covered machine will have accumulated grime after that much time
Before you ride, check the indicators and your headlight to ensure all are functioning

Now when you go, be careful, you will also need to shake off some rust.

Be safe brother.

I am a AM or aviation structural mechanic on E2C hawkeyes
Thats cool, I work on AH-64 Apaches weapons systems. I was wondering are you stationed in Washington or are you from there? The reason I ask is I'm getting out and moving back there and have no one to ride with over the summer. Anyway hit me up if your down.

Im not really good on this kind of info but I did want to pay respects where respects are do.

Thank you so much fighting for the freedom of our counrty that does not come free. Our country is great even though many people have complaints about it yet never left the country, never the less their own state. Its worth fighting for your own home and the country that you belive in. I look up to and respect those who serve our country.

Come home safe.

A future server of our great country,
-Brian
