Well I don't have a new superbike, but here goes...
It's in the owner's manual on page 85. You should check the fluid levels regularly (yourself).1. I understand how to measure all of the liquids, but what is the recommendation (products) for topping them off etc. (the manual only talks about oil, saying that the others should go to the dealer, this seems silly)
I check chain tension every few months generally if I'm just street riding. Lubing once a month or so should be sufficient. If the instructions are confusing, ask you local service guy to demonstrate it for you. Use an o-ring specific chain lube. Which one doesn't really matter in my experience.2. The chain tension instructions are pretty confusing (see the second paragraph above!)...I'm unclear exactly what I'm supposed to be measuring etc. Can anyone give me any tips/pointers on when and how to check this?
3. I've read a lot about cleaning and lubricating the chain...is there a consensus on how often and how (products etc.) to do this?
Fluid levels, tire pressure, and chain pretty much cover the basics... beyond that and you are generally going to need a trip to the dealer every 6200mi for valves and some other stuff.4. Anything else I should check regularly to ensure safety and longevity?
Let it cool off and bucket wash it carefully. Don't get water on the dash or in the exhaust lol... don't use a high pressure washer. Just be careful.5. What exactly or how can you wash a motorcycle?? I know this may sound like a stupid question...but, I don't wash the dashboard or the engine of my car when I clean/detail it...are there things I just don't want to wash or get water on etc. Or can I just let loose and make sure I dry afterwards??
