Lake City is a really good dealer. Very reasonable and they try to be helpful even though the bike is so new.

Valve lash adjustment

I know other brands tend to charge unreasonable first service charges too. I think this is because they know most people are going to be very keen to take care of their bikes needs when the are brand new.
One of the patented features of this engine is that the shim adjustment is not supposed to need the cam shaft removed. I would think that suggests its a fairly easy procedure. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.
