Gidday There fella's!
Having seen other threads pertaining to other brand and model of bikes, I thought it was time to start up a dedicated 990 adv thread here on kiwibiker. A great chance to share info amongst our fellow kiwibikers who ride the big orange adventure animal.
Maybe show us photo's of your bike. Whatever really.
I will get things started. Here is a couple of picks.
Now, I do have alterior motives. I have a question for you regarding oil for the 990. I live in Queenstown. I have owned the bike for just over a year. Been getting servicing done in Dunedin at Mac & vietch. they are bloody good for a bike shop. However its a long way to go for a service. I will start doing it myself. Am not the best mechanically, but will sort it or even use a local bike mechanic. No official bike shops here, but a few bike mechanics. Theres a dude in Cromwell who has been recommended to me. He uses Maxima motor oil. Looks quality but will have to put in 15/50 instead of 10/50. Is this much of a major?
Are you boys still running motorex oil in the bike? Or what other oil are you now using? I will always put in a quality synthetic in her but would love to hear your experience. Type of oil, and how the bike has been with it.
Happy riding boys and girls
