1st Service (600 mile break in)

Post by andyandtherman » Mon Dec 31, 2018 11:40 pm

Hi Guys, I took the new scooter out and about today to acquaint myself with it a bit and it is ridiculously fun. One concern I have, however, is with my dealer. I popped a few wheelies and noticed my handlebars rotated back after a couple, and no, I didn't slam the front back down. They were loose at delivery. A local internet acquaintance whom I've yet to meet up with, rides a 2018 SD R purchased from the same shop, told me his steering head bolt was loose and something else was loose having to do with the front brake assembly. My tires when I checked them cold, as set by the dealer, were 35 F and 42 R. Needless to say, I'm not brimming with confidence here and thought to have my very skilled mechanic friend do the service with me. Can anyone please tell me what needs to be done and very importantly, how to reset the service light?

Thanks in advance,

Andy

Edit: I did a lot of research and there's a lot of conflicting information about what works and what doesn't. It seems you're fine if you have a 16' or earlier, but the newer ones aren't as clear cut. I'd be most appreciative of any guidance.

Low and behold, the entire service is listed in the owners manual... I wasn't expecting that. It's simply a glance at levels and torque values, and the obligatory oil and filter change.

The ability to extinguish the service light still remains a mystery after quite a bit of research, however.
