One intake valve was just out if specs.
Rear brake fluid a little low
Coolant a little low.
Liked my LED setup
First 1800 with sideburners he had riden. (Loved the sound)
Made sure I was going to change plugs
Asked about my engine oil and drive oil (I use Amsoil)

That is why I took the bike to the little Honda shop in town instead of the big time stealership.

Total cost $170

Good deal!
I have a "pit Pass" that give me all the servces for the first 3 yrs and basically a 2 yr extended warrenty. Mine would have been $465. I had them put Amsoil in this time and I had to pay difference between Dino and Synt. But I do feel the $27 was wprth it!
Anyway they changed my plugs in my service as part of the deal and did all you listed so I guess they did it right...
Who Knows???
Anyway bike seems to sound better since the service maybe the valves were a little out..

Yes, Motorsports. Another reason is I called on Tuesday to get an appt. They said how about Thursday morning. I said no can do, but Thursday night so it can cool and you all can have it all Friday.

The other guys said, next week sometime

'Next week some time' ain't bad. The only reputable stealer near me has earliest appointments 4-5 weeks out for the rest of the summer. :x

The plugs are only good for 8000 miles??? I still hve my originals in at 33,500 miles, and the bike never fails to start right up? My Ford Ranger is 9 years old, still has the original plugs? Plugs should last longer than that, especially when they are upwards of $40 bucks a piece!!!
