2004 CBR 1000 - Help needed

Hi All

I have just bought a 2004 cbr 1000 and I am sooo excited.

The bike is like brand new. It only has 8000km

Yesterday I recharged the battery to see if it will start and it started on the first try.

I know I have to change the oil and oil filter. Is there anything else that should be changed?

Also I wanted to check the oil level but when I opened the oil cap it seemed to be missing a metal stick which measures the oil. Do CCBR 1000 have a stick or does the light on the dash signals when the oil is low.

Any help and inputs would be greatly appreciated.

Also I will put up the pics soon

I would also flush the brake fluid and change the coolant. Make sure the chain is properly adjusted and lubed. Check the tire pressure. There is no dip-stick on the CBR 1000. The clutch is in the way. There is a site glass near the bottom of the engine case on the right side. There are low and high level marks at the edge of the glass. The bike has to be standing up straight to see the oil in the glass. With the bike on the side stand, there will be no oil visible.

I run 39 psi in the rear and 36 psi in the front. Handles great.
