Is service intervals about the same for the 1000 as the 650?

I just bought an'07 1000 and it did not come with the owner's manual. I have a 650 and the owner's manual. Is service for both pretty much the same (can I just reference the 650 manual)?

Can somebody point me to a thread or source for the 1000 so I can do a proper job on plug and filter changes, etc. and it would be nice to know how to set up the shocks.

Thanks for any help.

Posting a link to an online manual is against forum rules. I'd suggest an edit quickly.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Smile the same!

my k7 650 and my k4 1000 are identical except for tightening the exhaust bolts.
More often on the 650.
i would think the vee would be alot more likely to shake exhaust bolts loose..

OK, another dumb question.

The V has a whirring noise when running, or at idle, that is very pronounced. Sounds like transmission area. On the other hand, the Wee has no such noise and is much more quiet.

Is that whirring normal for the V?

Also, the tank is whistling at the gas cap as it expands from the engine heat when parked. Is there a fix for this? (Did some more research and found the reason, but not the fix).

Thanks

Dunno about the whistle but the whirring is normal,i figured it was because of the gears driving the cams instead of a chain on the wee...

Kind of what I figured too. I had a Connie for a while that sounded the same, especially cold.
Thanks for the reply.

To answer my own question about the tank whistle: found the vent line was twisted going to a canister. Got the kink out, and the problem was solved.
