"#2 You dont have to be a "certified mechanic" to change your oil. That is all the 600 mile service is!" :yikes:cbxer55 said:#1 Your warranty will not be voided if you do your own maintenance. My dealer told me that!

#3 You dont have to be a "certified mechanic" to change spark plugs, never have, never will.
#4 I have never heard of any vehicle that requires spark plugs be changed at 7500 miles. WTF??
My 1981 Honda CBX is carburated and runs pretty doggone rich. I change them at 15,000 to 20,000.
Even then they are still good. The color of the insulator does not tell you anything. You have to
look further down at the base of the insulator, that is the "mixture ring". A white insulator would
tell me your engine is running lean as it should. I would have put them back in myself. probably the only reason for the 7500 mile change is so Suzuki can sell a lot of expensive spark plugs.
