KY needed for 24k svc

Up till now I've been blissfully taking my bike in to the dealer for service. But I'm starting to rethink that strategy due to higher costs and much lower revenue.

The estimated cost for this service is $1,100. So here's my question, given minimal wrenching skills, is a 24k service too much to dive into?

Probably I should start with an oil change.

Perfect opportunity for a local tech session. Just the cost of parts and the rest is free camaraderie and labor!! Just sayin'!!

Have to do mine as well.

Stealership here is robbing folks blind as well. Only thing I am not sue on is bleeding/changing the brake fluid.

Off to the hall of wisdom with a cold one and a note pad.....

Why am I here and what day is it??
