12K service

Guys -

Since the owners manual is silent on this, what EXACTLY is required for the 12K service? Already did the oil change.

Mal,

I know I can't give you specific details but I can give you some info. I was not provided a checklist, although one was created for my bike, it was reviewed by me, and kept with the service records. The only parts I was charged for was the oil change (fiflter, oil, crush washer). The rest was about 2.5 hours labor. Mostly checks of break pressure system (they seem to be real concerned with monitoring pressures at all different points), computer codes(there were none), battery and lights, brake pads and throttle slack.

Not really all that difficult except for the pressure checks which I think is done with the computer and checking the codes. I'm sure you could ask for those two items seperatly and I would expect it would be a charge for an hour or less.

Good luck either way.

I just had mine done and it was just under $400, which included oil change with synthetic, manual valve check, coolant change and whatever else they check. My brake pads were o.k. I was told if the valves needed an adjustment, that would be another $100.
Not too bad...

apparently, they have to drain the coolant to check the valves...seems strange,
there was a reason for it.
