HEY GUYS. I KNOW THERE ARE MANY OF YOU OUT THERE THAT ARE DO IT YOURSELF GUYS LIKE I AM. I HAVE JUST 500 MILES ON MY NEW M109 AND AM GETTING READY TO DO MY FIRST SERVICE. I KNOW THE USUAL ITEMS (OIL AND FILTER CHANGE, CHANGE GEAR OIL). MY QUESTION IS WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO PERFORM ON THIS MAINTENANCE? WHAT NEEDS TO BE TIGHTENED OR CHECKED. THE DEALERSHIP MAKES ME FEEL LIKE IT IS A MUST THAT THEY PERFORM THIS SERVICE AS WELL AS ALL THE SERVICES. I HAVE ALWAYS PERFORMED MY OWN MAINTAINENC ES ON MY VEHICLES. THE M109 IS JUST NEW TO ME AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE I DO EVERYTHING RIGHT. ANY HELP OR ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED. IS THERE A MAINTENANCE VIDEO OR BOOK OUT THERE FOR THE M109?

Not flaming you......just trying to make a long story short...........do 2 things:

1. follow the instructions in your manual that came with the bike and...

2. do a search of "First Service" on this board.

You'll find out all you'll need to know. That's what I did and it worked out great....I'm no "wrench" so you should do fine also. :D

Warranty applies whether you or the dealer do the service.
Taking it in to be sure it's done right puts you in the column with the blooming optimists.
Most of us who do our own service do it to be sure it's done right.
Saving an average of $175.00 or so is just more pleasure.
