Dilemma, should I take her in to get the 600 mile service or should I do it myself??? Not sure which way to go, I'd rather do it myself, but if the cost is not that much, maybe I'll take her in; what have you guys done? I enjoy working on my bike, but is it too entailed that I'm better off paying to have it done? What is a reasonable price to pay?


Thanks in advance...

I think that the 600 service is just a oil change and chain clean/lube. Do that and go over all the bolts on the bike and you should be good to go. Btw the screws on the fenders and windscreen like to wiggle out.

Do it yourself....

I think the "first checkup" at the local dealership is something like $125. It would be my guess that they change the oil and filter and just look the bike over. Not worth the money. And when I did my own 600 mile check, I actually did a thorough not and bolt check. And it helps you to get to know your beast better.
