Re: What the manual doesnt tell you.
I pull the center stand (not the ECH unit) and clean all pivots and re-lube at every 12K. This helps reduce stress on the actuator. I periodically check the free movement of the stand when she is on the side stand. If it binds even a tiny bit I pull, clean and re-lube the pivots.
Ditto on the shift linkage and any thing else I wish to have move freely.
I also check all the points on visible wiring harnesses when I have her apart for regular maintenance. I look for chaffing and any worn spots.
