What to do with bike and maintenance ?

Sending my 2007 the mechanic, will be fited with a new clutchbasket and clutchplates and a reartyre. It also has 36000km and was told that a big service was to be had. All in all pretty expensive here in Scandinavia. Also had some gearing issues "sometimes", from 2nd to 3rd gear and sometimes 3rd to 4th, gear not always snao into gear, like gearing into "nothing". Letting the gearlever down still with clutchhandle in, and another try gearing up and suddenly it clicks into possition. Question: is it getting too old to replace and spend money on or worth it and hope nothing else soon gonna fall apart.. Seems like a bike that demands alot of maintenance..

While he has the clutch basket out, I'd recommend installing a Factory Pro shift star. It should help with the shifting. It's not cheap, $200 + $48 to ship to you, but it's a lot less money than it would cost to split the engine cases and replace transmission parts.

Shift stars can go in without pulling the clutch or clutch cover.

At how many miles interval, did you do the regular checks? The manual stops at 24K. Did you use the same mile/km span like in the manual?
