Default Riding to not damage the engine??

Hey guys, I just bought my first proper motorbike after years of riding around on scooters. Its not much but a 200cc honda phantom (I guess this called low rider type?).

Anyway its taken a while for me to get used to a full manual but I think Im getting the hang of it, the question I want to ask though... are there any things I can do wrongly that would damage the bike or cause extra ware to the bike? And what SHOULD I do to keep it in good condition??

For example, I know shifting down without using the clutch will really damage it, what else? Im guessing theres a million things so if anyoen knows of any articles to keep my new baby in good form please let me know! I looked on google but nothing really helped.

thanks!

Not sure where you're located, but take the MSF BRC course or its equivalent. If you ride it properly you won't damage it. Then just maintain it properly. Lube the chain, regular oil changes, winterize when necessary, etc.

You can do what I did: ride faster and faster until you crash. Then start again. I wouldn't call it free, but if you have good health insurance it's not too bad.

Probably not, for a "full course", anyway.

I'm assuming you can read English, there are many books out there for modest cost, that when the techniques inside are properly-applied, GREATLY help the reader understand the physical and theoretical aspect of Riding.

My two favourites are:

Total Control by Lee Parks

Proficient Motorcycling: The Ultimate Guide to Riding Well by David L. Hough

You might look through the youtube.com videos - I think Lee Parks has a few videos up. I just thought of another person whom I'd "trust" for moto-video instruction: MO's own "Captain Crash Idaho": CaptCrashIdaho's Channel - YouTube

Get a users manual if you can for routine maintenance things.

Trying to keep things smooth is the best advice.
No abrupt starts or stops in your routine riding. Slip the clutch only enough to get you going.
Don't lug it by shifting too soon........and don't strain the engine by running at high rev's and shifting too late.

It really is pretty simple really.
