Hello all members.
Just got my new to me 2015 CBR500R with 10k MILES on it.
it seems that everything is good in working order.plan to ride it like i stole it this long weekend.
I have done all maintanace on my previous bikes myself ,and will do a major check up next weekend on CBR.
I will probably change brake pads , flush and replace all the fluids ,oil and air filter , spark plugs.
I do not have the repair shop service manual , but I am hoping to find videos or pages here for recomendations. I also want to change the OEM battery with LEAD Batteries, :wink:just seems to me a little lazy battery.
Please let me know if you have any recommendations.
Thank you
Ride safe /Ride long:wink:

Welcome Enns
Are you sure the brake pads/fluids need replacing after only 10 miles on the clock? The bike came with iridium spark plugs so should be good for 16,000 miles although I always change at 10k miles.

I changed my battery to a Motobatt lithium sports battery which has a far higher starting current, works great.
Check out utube for info etc.
