Almost Newbie 919 Questions

Hey all. I looked for this and didn't see it anywhere - probably just missed it. I expect to be the proud owner of a used 919 on Saturday 9/19 and I want to be ready.

First thing I'll probably want to do is change the oil. What is the correct factory spec oil weight? I already bought a Honda filter and crush washer.

How do most people clean their chain? I assume their is a do it on the bike method and a more thorough remove it and clean it method?

Is the owner's manual on line somewhere?

I tried the Honda site but it's all effed up. I have an old account that it knows my email from but won't let me log in with it. So I can't reset everything connected with my existing email account and when I use the login info they emailed to me it says it's invalid

Not sure exactly which bike I'll end up with yet but it'll probably have between 1300 and 5000 miles. I expect everything to be pretty much stock. Any other recommendations would be great. Thanks!!!

Chain maintenance, here you go:
.: Motorcycle Chain Maintenance | Canyon Chasers Motorcycle Sport Touring :.

No need to remove the chain. Use center stand or rear stand to get the wheel off the ground. I think the owner's manual is online somewhere, but I wasn't able to locate it quickly enough for my impatient self, so I bought one off ebay for $10. It was a downloadable .pdf version, though. I did find the factory service manual online for free. Google is your friend.

There are a bazillion oil threads on here. If you can't get good results from the built-in search function, you can use Google to search this site, too. Just go to Google and type in a search like this:

oil change

Good luck and enjoy the bike. I do!
