I know this topic has been written on before but I thought my post might give some others confidence to try performing their own maintenance. When I first purchased my 2009 Road King, I wrote this forum asking about maintenance plans. The members here convinced me to try wrenching on my own. Well, I just completed my 10,000 service check and i must say it was easier than anticipated. Armed with the service manual, torque wrenches and a good amount of time - I spread the job out over several days. Today I just completed changing engine/primary and transimission fluids (yes, it wasn't required but I changed the transmission fluid also) and adjusted the clutch. Of all the required maintenance, it was the clutch adjustment that I feared most. However, after reviewing the video on this site - it was a relatively easy procedure. One of the biggest benefits of doing the maintenance myself is that now I am much more familiar with my bike and it's components. There are still some items that I probably will rely on a dealer for - such as any ABS related issues or more technical items. But I still recommend everyone buy a few tools and do some wrenching on your own. You might be surprised just how much you can do - and how much money you can save.
