I think many, if not most around here do their own work. I'm in the process of doing my 6K service right now. Did the oil, trans and final drive fluids today. The brake flush, valve check and throttle body sync remain to be done. Then I'll hook up the GS-911 and reset the service date and check for any fault codes. It's my first time for most of this so I'm taking my time. I have the DVD from JVB Productions for guidance.
I just put in a service request with my dealer for the 6k less the oil change but including the final drive service. I'll be hitting 12k about mid way thru my AK trip so I'll do all the other stuff at that point myself. I figure the throttle body sync can wait until I get back unless I find the valves need more than an inspection along the route. All told I'll be between22- 24k by the time I return so I figured I'd let the dealer do the 6k and get the bike done by them again once I return. All the other required maintenance I'll do myself.
Learn as I go I guess.
