The owners manual goes thru it in detail. It is very straight forward. But with 7500 km (4700 mi) / once per year intervals it doesn't happen often for most riders.

Pretty sure I'm going to pull the trigger on it (would appreciate it if no one mowed my lawn on it).

But I'd love to know if anyone knows the bike or if there is known history. I'm always leery of trade ins... Supposedly he traded in 2 950s and a 1200 for a new 800GS.

It fits the bill perfectly, a relatively in expensive / beat up 950 that I'll only hammer some more...

thanks!
Naw, couldn't be the same bike. Ya think?

great questions.. I'll find out tonight. If anyone is up for dinner tonight somewhere down in SLC or Murray/Sandy feel free to hit me up. There is a killer, super cheap Indian place around 8000 south and 1300 east I was thinking of...

Get yourself one of these and it will save you half a day:

I have one installed and you are welcome to look it over. You know longer will have to pull the panels to do an oil change.
