Thanks for the replies. So basically, I do not really need to take the bike in for a 600 mile checkup? I think it is supposed to cost like $200. From reading your advice, it appears as though all I need to do is change the oil, change the oil filter, check my fluids and add any if needed, check my chain, tighten all bolts.
What fluids exactly should I be checking? Brake fluild, coolant? Are there more? I am used to working on bicycles, not motorcycles, and I have only changed the oil in my car. I think I can figure it out, I just need to know what to look for, and what fluids I should buy. I guess I can always ask the guys down at the shop.
