    Just completed 10k service... Myself!

    This is my first super computerized uber modern bike (my Goldwing had two carbs being a 2000 year model) so I was a bit nervous doing the 10k service myself.  My closest dealer is 125 miles away in a big, nasty, overly popuated city (Portland) and my work schedule... Sheesh.  Anyway, bought the Dealertool and took it down with the help of this forum site.  I have more time than large piles of cash.   :008:

    All good!  Dis-assembly is finicky only because there are so many little pieces.  Putting the tank back on is a little puzzle of wires and tubes, but went pretty easily.  So I am currently sitting at 10,500 miles.  Throttle bodies are still balanced (which implies valve clearance is still within spec), everything looks great!  Fresh oil, fresh gear oil, fresh air filter, full inspection.  And man was it easier to install new/better head lamp bulbs with the body work off!   :821:

    Tomorrow I hope to get it all put back together and road worthy for work transportation Wednesday.

    Next year?  The 20k service with coolant, hydraulic fluids, plugs, valves (never done shim/bucket style before), etc.  With y'all as backup I am confident it can be done at home.

    Thanks!!    :020:  :028:  :020:

    Congratulations, sincerely hope the putting back together will be as easy as dissassembling
    An old biker must be a good rider

    Putting the bodywork back on today. Somehow lost two screws... Better than having parts left over I guess.  We did have a bit of a windstorm, and my work area is less than perfect being just a shallow car port. But, tomorrow I can ride! After I buy two screws.

    If you need to "borrow" two screws,
    use the screws that hold the indicator surround in place -
    the screws that are accessible when the indicator is removed.

    Those plastic surrounds will still be secure - held in by the edge tabs,
    a peg into a rubber grommet, and also sandwiched by the indicator unit -
    which is held in by the large headed screws inside the mirror pod.

    ... but carefully check that the missing screws haven't dropped down
    somewhere - where they might cause a problem too !

    I almost did 'borrow' a couple, but I had to call it a night anyway and work today. Grabbing a few when I get off work.

    Confident they are not in the bike. It's just that I stored my body parts in 3 piles. One of them got moved by the wind. Good chance I will find them later this winter.

    It was easier to disassemble and assemble the machine than I thought it would be. Hardest part for me was the rubber mirror bottoms.

    A bit of good old fashioned "spit" around the rubbers
    and some gentle massage can help to ease them back in  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    I've done shim/bucket style once, many years ago on a Kawasaki I think, what with keeping the cam chain tight so that it remains on the crankshaft cog , not a nice job to do compared with the screw adjustment type. Don't forget that you are suppose to use a special Triumph tension tool at 20k too,.....anyone in the UK bought that yet??
