Anything in particular to watch out with stock tires..?
My 2011 C5 came with front & rear tubes, brake/clutch/throttle cables (4 total), can of touch up paint, and a wrench (?), all in an enfield box. The tool kit was installed on the bike already. I know my owners manual actually has a page listing these items, telling me to make sure my dealer included them. If you have a new bike and they wheren't included I'd ask for them, you're going to need all of them at some point, no sense in paying for them twice. I will say, it is nice to have a friendly, honest dealer. Makes owning the bike that much more enjoyable.
"The chain is another short-lived item. Keep an eye on it and keep it lubed and adjusted. Don't let it destroy your sprockets. You might get 6000 miles out of it..."I wonder if it would be a good idea to have the dealer install a quality x-ring or o-ring chain at time of initial prep, and if the proper size is even available. Still on the fence whether I want to commit to a new C5 or wait for the newly redesigned Guzzi V7, which won't be here in the States til late 2012 or early 2013....
Yep, mine came with extra front and rear tubes, all cables, even the speedo cable, touch up paint, a big wrench and the reflectors. All this is an Enfield cardboard box.I joked that the bike must be a real turd if they feel the need to include so many spares. The guys at the dealership have no sense of humor and did not find it funny.
stock is a standerd 520 chain with a clip master link very easy to install.
