I spose the big thing is valve clearance, the shims. Apart from that I guess the clothes could stay on. Any dick can do the lubes, that leaves what? The filter, no problem there.
I point this out cos I was watching a guy build a motor for Honda Australia, he can do anything with a bike, plus he used to race. He claims that once the bike has done say 20000 and the shims have been reset, end of story. He argues that how to stuff a bike up is to neglect oil changes, he does his at 8000k. Last time I changed my plugs at 40000, might adopt the same policy with shims. My ride partner has his done once in a blue moon.
