This is quoted from a Cx/GL owner in the USA to give an idea of service parts used on a well maintained CX/GL motorcycle.

Hi Shep,

Below is the list of work done on my 145 K machine. I should point out that in general I've changed the oil (and filter) every 3000 to 5000 Km, and I adjust the tappets every month or two. I also replace the air filter every couple of months.

stator replaced 70 K
cam chain replaced 70 k
valve seals and cleaning 70 k
Rectifier 100K

starter replaced 1X
Front forks oil replaced and seals 2X
Carb overhauled 145K
Rear Driver Overhauled 120K
Front brakes overhauled 3X
Rear brakes overhauled 3X
Rear Tires 5X
Front Tires 3X
Tachometer Replaced 143K
Clutch Cable 2X
Throttle Cable 2X
Front Stabilizer Brace 1X
Shifter 1X

I also added Zerk fitting to pivot area to stop squeaking around (70K)... and it works great.
