Also I was wondering what type of oil is best, I have one guy at the dealer telling me not to run synthetic and the other is telling to use it? both guys are at the same shop. I personally use synthetic oil in everything I have I would sure think u would use it in a racing ATV

I'VE HEARD RANGE OF 70 TO 175.....

CHANGE YOUR OWN OIL....IF YOU GO SYNTHETIC AT 1ST SERVICE...WAIT FOR LATER IN 1ST INTERVAL...ABOUT 10 TANKS BEFORE YOU GO SYNTHETIC....

YOU CAN DO VALVE CHECK ON YOUR OWN IF MECH INCLINED...THERE IS A THREAD ON HERE DETAILING STEP BY STEP.....
FOR WARRANTY PURPOSES....USE PIC'S TO VERIFY VALVE CHECK AND CLEARENCES AND KEEP RECIEPTS FOR OIL/FILTER CHANGES..

I could easily do it all my self but they told me in order for my Warranty to hold up it has to be down by a Certified Honda Mech.

As long as you have the receipt and some kind of log when you service it, they can not void the warranty, it's totally BS.

I would use regular oil on the first service then go to synthetic on the second service and use the Honda HP4 oil or there are other brands that you can use which allot of members also use.

Supertrapp SL, Pro Design Filter, PCIII, PRM Baja Front Bumper, PRM 6 Pack Grab Bar, Ricochet A-Arm guards, 23" Front ITP Pro Series, Kenda Kutters XC on DWT Red Labels, Motion Pro Twist Throttle,Maier Plastics, Elkas Front Shocks (Preload)

What all has to be done on the first service? I know Change Oil, Clean Air Filter,adjust Clutch & Chain and adjust the Valves. Is there anything else? If not I will just take it to the Performance shop and have them adjust the valves and clutch and do the rest my self I could probably do the Clutch I just don't know much about ATVS, I have good bit of Mech. Experince
