When and what is my next service?

i just got my 04 600RR two weeks ago everything is fine, my friend drove it(who has bikes for over 20 years now) told me its a bit funny, he adjusted it for me today said it was running rich, it was idling at around 1.5, now its around 1, the bike feels and performs better, my question is that it has 8000 miles on , had a new battery change a week ago from the Honda dealer..a few days ago i tired to fire it up but it didnt work..i tried for like 3-4 times it didnt turn on, so i fired it up and kept my hand on the throttle (At around 2) for like 6-7 seconds then it worked fine without problems, this problem hasnt happened to me again, was it because the bike was cold(didnt ride it for a week) ? if it helps i change oil+filter every 2000 kilos to keep it fresh, do i need to change spark plugs or something? and when do u think is my next major service and what to change?

thanks guys!!!

not sure about the 04 but the 05 and up lists the 1st major service at 8K, your next major one is 16K if it is anything like the 05 and up service

idle should be around 1200 rpms

as far as running rich without an AF meter or actually pulling the plug and looking there is no way to tell for sure.
you dont need to change the oil that much, honda says every 8K miles is all that is needed
most people (myself included) half that distance for oil but its not necessary

my 03 got the piss beat out of it on a regular basis . i changed the oil every 3k with honda hp4 never a problem .. at 8 k they say check the valve clearance but mine never needed it till almost 20k ..i think at 8 they say air filter change check steering head bearing and its prolly a good time to do break fluid and a coolant flush .. i put 36 k on my 03 and i never had a problem 1 with it ..im sure you can find a mantainace schedual from someone on here

I think... on the RR's they are all FI so you should have to adjust the fuel/air mixture through a computer. What he most likely adjusted was the Idle speed. There should be a knob, right behind the left mid fairing. Idle it up a lil more to around 1,500 and it should start up easier I think.

thats too high, the 07 idles this high because the computer tells it to
the others need to be lower.

if you want to know for sure wether or not it is running rich take it to a dyno and have them do a baseline with an air fuel meter in the pipe. unless it stinging your eyes while running or fouling your plugs just sitting there you really cant tell for sure without a meter
