Change the front fork oil (if it hasn't been done recently).

Lube the rear drive shaft splines with Honda Moly 60 lube (if it hasn't been done recently). If they stripe while on the road, it can ruin your day. Don't ask how I know.........!!

Of course you will check that all lights and controls are working good...!

Question on front fork oil. Progressive springs and new oil were added to the bike 9 years and 30,000 miles ago. That is old enough for new fluid, right? And zero air pressure to the front forks with progressives, right?

Thanks!
Mark.
Yes, it's time for new fork fluid. Yes, zero pressure in the forks with progressive springs.

I'm pretty set on the Shell rotella T synthetic (and the pure one filter), after cost/benefit comparison, my oil change intervals, and tests of the oil after usage.
I have been using Shell Rotella T Synthetic in my GL1500 for 67,000 miles with good results. No engine, transmission or clutch problems.
