18000 service question

What is actually done at this service? I was hoping to service the bike myself but I am not sure what this service requires. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

If you are not having any trouble, Change the oil & ride it.

It is just a glorified oil change, unless your bike is 2 years or older in which case you may have to also change your coolant and brake fluid (and clutch fluid for that matter).

You may also want to check your brake pads if they have not yet been replaced since the bike was new.
