New member, bought used CTX, older rider

Hello from the middle of North Dakota.
Just bought a 2014 CTX700 manual shift, 2,300 miles with OEM bags, Corbin with driver backrest, original seat, 3 windshields, Honda short, Honda tall, and Cee Bailey's
Rode it 50 miles and took the bags off and put the original seat on. Bags and Corbin might show up for sale.
Last motorcycle Kawasaki Versys 650
Time for fluids change.
350Four and muised like this.

Thank you for the welcomes!


I changed oil & filter.

Changed brake fluid, front looked OK, rear had small crystals in it.
Changed antifreeze.
Used all Honda products.
Original battery and tires. I hate to buy a new battery now, with only 3 months riding season left, but don't want to wait until stranded from original battery.

Welcome aboard...Unless you're having a battery problem, wait until next spring. Keep a battery tender plugged in.
