Servicing your bike

You don’t have to go to an authorized dealer . Provided the service is done to the standard the factory set ( not hard ) using genuine parts ( to support the factory ) the service book is filled in , all the right oils are used , and all the items on the maintenance schedule are completed .

There is a piece of E.U. law that allows you to do this . It was designed to stop the monopoly of franchised dealers/importers .
