Since I'm retired (my time seems worthless) I do my own work. Yes we have a good dealer only 125 miles away but I enjoy doing it myself. I keep a spreadsheet of all maintenance and repair work by date and mileage. I'm now due for a brake flush, oil change, valve adjust and tb sync. I need to ride a bit to lower the level of fuel in the tank so it's easier to r&r but I'll get to it soon. I have purchased a GS911 and electronic tb sync tool as well as the necessary funny funnel for brake flush. I made my own dummy brake pads from a nice piece of oak.
