Newbie

just bought a 2000 851 and thought it would be a good idea to find out just what I should be doing with her before a good ride out. I didn't manage to get a service book for her so 1st off has to be a strip down, service and good check up, but by who ?? any recommendations.
thanks

Neil

A 2000 851

Thought they stopped making them around 1992. You don't mean a 748 with an 853 conversion do you? Anyway, no matter, welcome to the board.

As Flanks says, someone who knows these thisngs inside out will be along in a minute

No problem, I was wondering where you got a 2000, 851 from! Would have been impressed if this was correct.
