First Maintenance on 2012

Does anyone have suggestions on what needs to be done, I am taking it to the dealer. I don't want to get ripped off...

It's a glorified oil change for the first maintenance, you will get ripped off if you go to the stealership.

Yup. It's just an oil change and they supposedly check the bolts, levers, chain, that sort of stuff. I think it was about 200$, which is a total rip off. But if you do it, at least you'll be happy on your ride home, when you can finally open her up.

unless you absolutely have to for warranty reasons (which i highly doubt) you will be throwing away $$$$ $200 for oil change and checks is insanity lol, you can do those things yourselves, speaking of which how many miles do you have, id get that first oil change done a bit sooner than normal and put in syntheic :)

Change the oil and tighten the chain. If you don't know how to do these things, now is a perfect time to learn. For the price of the service you can buy enough tools to do the jobs.

Walmart sells Mobil 1 full synthetic Racing 4T oil for $8.99 a Qt.
I get the K&N 204 filters in 3 pack on amazon
