6000 must be a bit more involved and a valve check is in the duty's. If he doesnt post it I'll get the list this afternoon. I edited the last post I thought it was 600. Thats what Im doing today.

Just ordered stickers. Perfect, there is untapped HP in such fine vinyl products.

What is involved in the 6K ? Do you have a checklist for the servicing intervals ?

It is in your manual. I just followed what it said. Basically, check all fluids, change oil and oil filter (Amsoil baby!), your supposed to change your chain guard rail (the long plastic piece that sits on your swing arm that the chain rubs on), check tire tread depth, check all brake pads, blah blah blah... I also took advatage of the cold weather and made sure all of my bolts were tights, greased things that need grease, etc.

I don't have a manual

I was just looking for a copy of the checklist - just trying to figure out what needs to be done so I can figure out if I can/will do the 6K or not. I'm hoping it's nothing more than an oil/filter change and a check of bolts and suck like.

I recently put the Triumph tall/adjustable windscreen on my Roadie and can say for me, it works perfect. I also got a new helmet that cut noise considerably. I have compared my old Arai Corsair and the new Nexx Carbon and the Nexx is much quieter.
Maybe I'll do some photos.

I forgot about the throttle bodies balance. I have no way of doing that, I guess I will have to pay for it.

Do you even need it though - assuming the motor's running fine what the downside to NOT having it done and, say, having it done at the 12K (along with the valves perhaps) ?

...and speaking of throttle bodies

...how much out of balance can they be before requiring attention? I bought the DealerTool software/cable a while back, and hooked it up one rainy Saturday. Everything checked out fine, according to the manual (I even reset the check engine light and cleared a couple owner-induced error codes). If memory serves correctly, #1 was 2mm high, #3 was 2mm low. The bike runs fine, although sometimes the idle surges a bit. Whatcha think?

I don't know if I need it. I don't know much about that stuff. Like slobinski says his are out a couple millimeters. I wonder what the tolerance is? I was just at the dealer during lunch. I should have asked.

Nor me. Definitely no mechanic so I'd love to hear from someone who knows for sure
