    Well read a lot and saved big time $$$ Thanks Guys!!!
    I did the 1K service today just have to finish adjusting the clutch tomorrow.
    Went with Mobil1 20W50 Cycle oil and a Mobil1 M1-102 filter. Used Mobil1 in all 3 holes. I used a 2 liter pop bottle cut off bottom and cut u shape out of top worked like a charm. :D

    1,000 mile check gives the dealer a chance to see if everything is the way it's suppose to be.
    Loose nuts, bolts, etc.

    You paid a lot for the bike.
    Things come loose.....

    I say "good on you" for taking on the service challenge and self-wrenching. Yes, things come loose, but why pay top dollar for someone else to tighten them up? Been wrenching on everything from minibikes to tractors since I could hold a wrench and, to date, the only failure was my 1975 Kawasaki dirt bike because we didn't set the rings properly (my mistake). Other than that, it's money in the bank.
