Considering the cost of shop work as well as the general reliability of the 'Strom, I'm wondering whether the best strategy for the non-mechanically-inclined would be to change the oil and filters when needed and just skip everything else for 20-25K miles or so, and then sell the bike.
Seriously. Routine maintenance procedures performed at the dealership at recommended intervals along with bigger things like valve adjustment and TB synch could perhaps reach a couple grand in that time -- why not use that money (and proceeds from the sale of the old bike) and get a new one? I'd be very surprised if anything drastic would result from just doing the basic things anyone can do with the OEM toolkit. Yeah, your valves will probably be out of spec and the TBs out of synch, but very unlikely to a fatal, damaging, or even annoying degree.
The new owner will probably do all the major checks, adjustments and replacements anyway, just from an abundance of caution. Most of us do.
