Hey everybody,

I just bought a 2016 Monster 1200 with 4700mi.
According to the previous owners service records, he bought the bike new in 2016, serviced it for the following 2 years (‘17/‘18) and hasn’t brought it back for service since. He also hasn't put much mileage on it. Besides timing belts and oil change, what should I prioritize maintenance wise?

Thank you.

New belts. If you are going to take it to a dealer talk to them about getting it up to date. If you are capable of doing it yourself, change every fluid whether it is required or not. When you change fluids including bleeding brakes and clutch , that will automatically mean you’ve gotten rid of moisture from storage.

That goes for Fork fluid too, though you may want to wait and see if you need new fork seals.
