Santa was kind to my wife early this year and just brought her an F700GS. I have a '11 DL650 to ride that maybe I can upgrade to an F800 once this one is paid off, so I'll try really hard to get higher up on the nice list next year!
To the point, I'm curious how much routine maintenance most people do on their F-twin bikes vs. taking the bike to the dealer. I have reasonable experience working on motorcycles and feel competent to do what's required, but I'm concerned about voiding the warranty. Also, what about getting a diagnostic software package to reset the service messages - will doing this myself void the warranty? I was looking at this..
Thanks for any comments and advice!
