I don't recall much being required at a 4,000 mile interval, so that sounds like a lot. Take a look at you service intervals and see what it calls for at 4,000. My guess is that most if not all of it can be done yourself or with a little help from someone.

that sounds kinda high. oil changes are easy to do yourself. i dont have my service manual here but im sure its just the regular checking bolts, adjust and clean chain, throttle adjustment, etc. lot of the same stuff done at the 600 mile service. if you dont have a service manual you should pick one up. lots of good info in there and tells you how to service your bike and how often.

I think heyser cycle might be a bit cheaper, although their schedule of services doesn't follow the manufacturer's. Never took my bike there before, but am thinking about taking my bike in to either them or Coleman's in Falls Church for my 12000 mile check up. I can't remember what the manual said, but I remember bike shops quoting stuff that didn't have to be done according to the manual. When you tell them they change what needs to be done. I think everyone is right though, that not much has to be done at 4k. The book might even say that you don't have to change oil til 8k, but its a better idea to change it every 4k. To change the oil all you really need is 4-5 quarts of oil(can't remember if you need 3.5 or 4.5, its about 11.95/qt from a dealer), oil filter($15?), socket wrench, wrench, bucket to catch the oil, socket extension(because to reach your oil filter you'll have to go behind your front tire), and the extension/attachment you'll use to remove the oil filter. Also the book says you should replace the washer, but I didn't mainly cuz I didn't have a new one. You should try changing the oil yourself just to see how it is, because I'm pretty sure its not even required according to the manual. All that other stuff in the book seems pretty minor and you shouldn't have to pay $300+ for it...

Your valves are still probably ok, clean your air filter, oil/filter change, check/clean/adjust chain. You're DONE!

And change your oil more frequently than 4k pls.
