I want to do some green laning and am a complete novice!
I wouldn't worry about that. Some owners on here have been riding them for years and still ride like complete novices.

Me especially. ;)

Congrats on getting an MT

Use the forum Search facility or go to the Technical/Top tips section and find the

Initial Servicing Guide

Go through it , you don't have to do it all at once. Part of this is to fettle your bike ( I trust no-one) and part of it is for you to know how it is out together. ( I bought an MT with a brand new front tyre, upon getting it home I found the rim tape was gaffa tape and the tube was well past it's best ).If you put the effort in, there are no guarantees of trouble free MT riding but you can stack the odds

If you need help or parts, post on the forum

Thanks for the replies, all advice gratefully received. Noted about the A5 Derrick I'll have a look over that way, I haven't been able to get on the road yet due to work, but hope to get out this weekend.
I'm a mechanical muppet, already been swearing at the thing in the garden due to a minor'operator error' with starting it! 🙄

Look at the General section, a few topics down is MT Teeshirts. You don't have No 18 by any chance 😊

You'll either soon learn a little about bike mechanics or you'll find running an MT a chore. Check out the thread Initial Servicing Guide

Enjoy your MT
