CTX200 17500 km update

After over 17500kms, I’m really impressed with how easy and inexpensive it is to work on the CTX200.
There’s not a lot to it.
This is my first bike, and so far I’ve been able to do everything myself (with the help of YouTube).

5000kms – Disassembled and cleaned carburetor just for fun.
5000kms – Installed ADV Monster headlight and aux CREE headlights.
6000kms – New tyres.
9000kms – Valve spacing adjusted. Intake spacing was good. Exhaust was 0.07mm, so adjusted it to 0.1mm.
13500kms – New front tyre.
14000kms – Changed brake fluid.
14750kms – New chain, new front and rear sprockets. New top chain roller.
17500kms – Tightened steering bearings.

  1. thanks for the info guys. I replaced the rear sprocket with a 37 tooth from a honda cbr 250 which gave it much more legs for the longer rides without to silly when it comes to take off. Very happy.
