Here's to all of you guys (and gals) who have taken your LT apart and done your own major service. After nearly four years of ownership, I ordered a set of Paul Sayegh's service videos and did it. Some thoughts:

1. I have a better understanding for why the dealers charge so much for this service.

2. I am really glad that I did it myself this time. I finally understand how my bike comes apart and goes back together. In an , we owners might be the only source of expertise.

3. I don't think that I would have attempted it without reading about all of your experiences and of your encouragement. Thanks everyone for all of the information that is shared.

4. A big thank you to Paul Sayegh for producing the service videos. I am not a mechanic ( I think the more modern term is technician, but I digress)
but I was able to watch and do. I got stuck a couple of times and had to hit the replay button. But, I got through it and completed the thing.

5. None of the procedures are really hard. It is the getting to virtually any of the things that need attention that took the time.

If you plan on keeping your LT for a while, I think that it is worth the time to get familiar with your bike. Plus, just think of all that money that we save.

Thanks everyone.

Ditto

I ditto what Charles said about the videos. I just finished mine last weekend and it was a help to refer back to them several times for my first solo 24k. Between this site, a few tech sessions I have watched, and the video the service was finished and the bike runs great.
What did I learn?
The tank will be on fumes next time.
I found it easier to just remove the singray completely than hang it off the side.
