Here are a few:

(1) Clean, lubricate, and adjust the chain.
(2) Keep tires properly inflated.
(3) Get a manual.

#4 Each "No Fear" sticker you apply to the bike adds 10 HP.

J/K...get a manual, best $20 you'll ever spend...Legally :D

Yes, DEFINITELY get a shop manual. Your owner's manual should list all the things that need to be checked/maintained, and the frequency it should be done, whereas the shop manual will probably only tell you HOW to do the maintenance, and not WHEN. One of the most important things, and one of the things that a lot of people don't do, is to check/retorque thier steering head bearings. Improperly torqued steering head bearings could cause an accident, or at least poor handling. :D

A study conducted at Calif. State University concluded that each "NoFear" sticker applied to your helmet is equivalant to 5 years riding experience.

Also be sure to keep your blinker fluid topped off.. :)

getting the maintenance manual

So, I want to buy a manual, but don't know where the best place is. Can I go to my local bookstore? Order off the net from Amazon, B&N? Do I have to get it at a shop? How much will it usually cost, and what's a good deal?

For a 2000 R6, and also a Suzuki GZ250, 2000.

Also note that going to the boys room prior to riding reduces sprung weight which is the equivelent of about $200 worth of titanium fasteners.

I ordered my GSX-R manual from a Suzuki dealer (big mistake).

I later found it on the Internet for about $30 less.
