+1. It's very easy to do it yourself. and it makes you to learn your bike. little by little you ll be able to do more stuff. and we are here to help you.to know your bike. The bike is very "service friendly". Oil filter/drain plug easy access, easy chain adjustment etc etc. Schedule is in the owners manual.
Yeah, if you have an a$$hole dealer it could be an issue. The place I got my bike isn't known for being pricks about warranty work.yes, but if that first very important service is not done properly, they can have you chasing your tail for ages IF something does go bad and you missed it. I got my extra 3 year extended warranty thrown in with the deal.
