6K service-did the oil change myself, now what?
Rather than delay my recent trip of 2k miles to get a service appointment, I chose to change my 08GT's oil at 5,900 miles. Now I'm back and wondering if many of you have done this and then taken the bike to the dealer for computer check and a general once over to see everything is still screwed on tight and to check for any upgrades/fixes/etc. Make sense? If so what might one expect to pay for the remaining service?
I also am in need of tires (8,000 miles on originals rear has a little tread left, front is feathering, cupping,etc) and considering getting tires via online store and having a local independent shop mount them for me, since dealer gets full list on tiers and over $100
for mounting and balancing 2, and I can't stand that.
