I have a 1997 kawasaki zx600e... does anyone know where I could download and print a copy of the "suggested maintenance schedule"?
I bought it used last fall and I have had the oil changed once, the forks resealed, a new chain put on, and carbs all redone. Since I bought it used and don't really know what was done previously, and I'm not a mechanic whatsoever, I want to make sure I don't miss something. Since I pay a mechanic who does it out of his garage (not an actual shop), things only get done when I call him and say "hey... I want this done... how much?"
In particular, I have recently noticed the clutch doesn't like to go into neutral sometimes and shifts hard from 1st to 2nd so I started thinking maybe something clutch wise would be a next expenditure. ???
I would just like to find a maintenance schedule sheet somewhere that I could atleast use as a rough guide...
Other than the SMALL clutch issue, bike is running great! I just want to make sure I'm being proactive so she lasts a good while longer... I will add that she has 30k miles on her.

Perfect. Thanks! I'm usually a decent googler, but I couldn't find this.

You may want to adjust your clutch cable to see if that may be causing your issues.
