First Service

If my buddy knows how to do the Valve adjustment is there really a point to do the "First Service" through the dealer?

What all do they actually do?

Nope! Download the service manual and do it yourself.

simple stuff like change the oil, tighten the chain if needed, check lever play, clean the air filter, check tire pressure. You probably have done all of this other than the valves anyway. It's an ATV, not a Gulfstream.

Hours later, the use of words I didn't even know was in my vocabulary, and a busted knuckle or thee and..............................

The valves didn't even need adjusted.
