It boils down to having to ride over there, ask them to please pop the seat and plug in, watch him go through whatever facial expressions suit him before I find out what a favour it is... or skipping it as unnecessary since the service interval is not related to faults, just a mileage counter.
I wanted to try out the bluetooth dongle anyway... It's been plugged in 24x7 for over a week with no issues, but then again the bike almost never goes more than 16 hours between rides. Next time the wrench comes on I'll try blipping it in Torque.
I use tuneecu, torque and Dealertool. Dealertool is the only one that will allow you to reset the maintenance counter.
