How much does dealer do, and does it
void any warranty if you do it yourself.
Buy a service manual and do it yourself, it's fun and it will not void your warranty
Plus you can use better fluids then your dealer probably does.
Do it yourself, save money, and really get to know your bike. However, if you're mechanically challenged like me, take it slow and don't get into something over your head that might tempt you to cut corners and make your bike unsafe. The 1000 mile service is pretty simple. The main thing is to check EVERY fastener on your bike and get high quality fluids in it.

Void Warranty? - Archive - Harley Davidson Community
Doing your own service doesn't void anything but save receipts for oil, filters etc.
As far as what the dealers do, that's very loose, it depends on the dealer and the tech working on the bike and if they have a conscience or not.:s
Take a look here...

If they have a service area with a view might want to watch as Glider says, some are good others well you get the idea get a manual and keep your reciepts and get to know your bike
