Hey Tronix how did this work out for you?

I am not concerned about the oil/filter change, coolant flush, chain adjustment, or bolt fastening, but as far as the other checks go (throttle cable, clutch cable, fuel system, engine ECM, etc.) I am unfamiliar.

Tell me about your decision to go at the service yourself...

I dont trust any dealers car or bike so I have taught myself how to work on my own cars and bikes with first buying the service manual. If you have tools and a will to learn you really cant mess up anything. I like to take my time and go over everything slowly so I do it right the first time. For my 500 I did everything you were supposed to do that you stated, cables are easy to adjust, checking fuel system and ECM is easy to. I bought a USB/OBD2 connector on amazon and installed TuneECU to check for any error codes and flashed my ECU to the newest firmware following the instructions on the TuneECU site. I found it very straight forward working on my bike. I think anyone will get more pride out of working on their own bikes than having someone else do a quick job on it and paying big dollars.

Thanks Tronix you da man, man. I'll let you know how it's coming along. Bought a dimple today, looking for a good filter(go oem?), gonna buy the cable, and most importantly, the manual.

Cheers.

Crap, just noticed that manual is for 06-10. Think there would be any difference using it for a '12?
