Interesting, the Australian manual (that I have anyway) does not include a 6 month / 6,000 km service. It has the 1000km service, and then the 12 month / 12,000 km service. Looking at the manuals online, that pdf has a 6 month / 6,000 km service which simply lists:
Cleaning the crank case breather (mines always clean)
Inspecting idle speed (still at the 1400rpm it was off the floor)
Inspecting brake fluid and pad wear (fluid perfect, pads look okay)
Inspecting the clutch system (feels good, and free play is ~10mm at the ball end)
It lists nothing else. All of which I can do in 10 minutes (see above), and are fine. It looks more like a pre-ride check haha.
I have mine booked in for this "service" (which the dealer scheduled at the first service, despite it not being in my owners manual) Friday. It had better be darn cheap.
Eleven hours in a tin can?
God, there's got to be another way!
