Here is an interesting video about motorcycle maintenance or rather the lack thereof by Pavlin on his old Yamaha 660 Ténéré (single)
I wonder what you guys think?
These are the two extremes; between the OCD maintenance and minimalist maintenance types. Interestingly lots of very frequent maintenance schedules seems to be driven by special interests. Motorcycle dealers, vendors etc..etc.. all fuelled by rumors on the internet....
My brother in law his a car mechanic, from Baja California, MX
I.E. I know for a fact, that he rarely changes his (cars) coolant. Maybe only when he needs a new water pump or a new radiator. Some of his cars have 300K + miles....The problem I can see with OCD maintenance is that's a lot of waste; money, time and resources. This is not to say that you shouldn't change your engine oil regularly or stop to clean and lube your chain frequently....However I believe that Pavlin as some very valid points.
