I was pondering over the same thing, Anton. Actually I was considering doing mine every 3k intervals. Mine is by no means new, at 31000 kms now.

BTW...it uses NO oil whatsoever, but every week I gooi a tiny bit of coolant in...about quarter cup, however many ml's that is.

Anton, are you like me, do everything yourself (except sex of course!!!)?

If so, there's a really good guide on ADVRider on how to do it....there are some seriously handy tips which one should clearly follow, otherwise you're bound to make a bit of a mess on the garage floor!

Ahem.......I have it downloaded as a pdf file.....if you want it pm me with your e-mail address.
