Default ATV tune up?

Hey im looking to give my ATV a tune up for the upcoming bow season. It is a 2000 Yamaha Big Bear 400 and i haven't done anything to it maintenance wise for 6 years (it just sits in our barn at a vacation house), lol. It has been used maybe 6 hours a year and has been through lots of dust. I was thinking of going air filter, oil filter, plug, and oil change. how much do you think this will cost? Also, anything else i can do to make sure she is tuned up and running good?

Default RE: ATV tune up?

Lube all the cables and change the lube in the differentials (85W90). And check the muffler bearings. They were quite a problem on the Big Bears.

Plug $5

Oil (3.5 qts. @ 3.00/qt.) $12

Air filter (spray cleaner and reoiler kit for the foam sleeve) $15.00

Oil (for cables, you probobly have around) $0

Bottle of gear lube (85W90) $5

Should be doing it ATLEAST once a year, regardless of time used and more like 2X.
