Okay, I am torn and hope maybe I can get folks opinion on this one....
I need to have my 12k service done. I am already going to do all the fluids and the air filter change myself (all bmw brand), but I was going to let them do the valve check, mainly out of fear of warranty concerns, but second because I have never done one. Should I do the valve check as well even though I am still under warrenty?
While I am not the sharpest wrench in the box, I have time, patience, manual and this site and to me it's more rewarding to do work on my own. Is there a warranty risk if I do, and/or should I expect grief if something even unrelated warranty wise occurs? (knock on wood, rear seal problems).
I will still take the bike in for the computer check, and minor checks to keep my local dealer afloat/keep my on the radar and my service book stamped. I am also not concerned about resale, as I don't plan on selling the beauty anytime soon (if ever) and likewise, I have been keeping meticulous records with receipts and a few pictures here any there
