Update: After 5,000 more miles, the leak has returned and is making enough of a mess of my undercowling that I'm biting the bullet and replacing my clutch cover.

Instead of being concerned with your bike going 0-100, think about your body going from 100-0. On pavement.

Slow down. :)

Could be a steal for someone if all the damage was cosmetic. Sorry that happened; I was always apprehensive about having it on the college campus I work at.

What I do in that situation is I let the insurance pay me for the bike's value, then buy back the "totalled" bike from them at a discounted rate. Everybody wins, except your bike which will have a...

Not sure why it "needs" to be faster. It's not a super sport, but will break the speed limit in any state. Not sure why everyone thinks these bikes are underpowered and feel they need to go faster...

I wouldn't say it should sound like a sledge hammer, but there is occasionally a "clunk" sound that's difficult to describe, and it does vary in intensity depending on where the engine decides to...

You can indeed swap the lower half and pull the upper half of the pump. So if you were to score one that was bummed, as long as the housing is ok, you can swap them if you're careful. But the 300r...

You can't hear the tensioner when riding. At idle you can hear it, and if bad enough you can feel it chatter in the handlebars.

Probably the tensioner. Factory ones are noisy to begin with, then as they age they knock more and more. Mine got so bad I thought I had a bearing going. Replaced with some Lowes hardware and made...

The total capacity with a filter change IS 1.4L. So if you added that, you should see it on the window, and likely will be overfilled by 200-300mL since you didn't change the filter.

My guess is...

If you can bump start it and run fine, your alternator is working. Charge as jkv said and get it tested for cranking amps. My original battery Yuasa lasted 8 years; just recently replaced for $40.

These engines can make some rattles. Especially with the CCT; its often very chatty. 40w oil is more than enough; 30w is usually fine for most climates unless it's very hot. Rotella/Delo synthetic...

To be fair it's not in the maintenance schedule. Usually it just stays in there until a seal fails, then since the forks have to come out anyway the fluid just gets changed.

It varies, but usually for the useful life of the bike. As long as it's not leaking fluid, it's generally fine. If it hasn't been off-roaded I haven't seen one blow.
