Here are the remaining items.
Clutch, brake fluid. Do I really need to change them?
Only in the system you want to use...Interval is annual on wheel circuits at a minimum (late 01 and up).
Coolant. Do I reallly need to change this?
Depends on how long it has been in there Book is 2 years you could go 5
How do I grease the side and center stand?
Side stand needs a needle point on a grease gun, Center must be disassembled as there are o-rings
How do I check the steering damper?
Lift the front wheel off the ground on center stand and rapidly move handle bars, if you feel some resistance to rapid movent - it is good.
How do I check the swing arm bearings for play?
This applies to the next question also. Grab the rear wheel top and bottom and rock it - any movement - look further
How do I check rear wheel bearing play?
How do I clean the inductive sensor on rear wheel?
Wipe any metal particles that have stuck to off with a rag.
Sounds like you need to attend a Tech Session. Feel like a trip to north AL? I will host a tech session and invite all comers to observe. You just buy the parts and show up. You will learn the answers to all those questions. Pick a date.
