Recommended Posts

as per title

I do all my own servicing and wondered if anyone else here did the same? or do you all get it done at the dealers?

Based on the fact 99% of the FAQ is intended as a guide for doing your own maintenance, I think the answer is fairly obvious.

Not to mention 80% percent of the forum discussion.

I can proudly say that I have never once had a dealer service any of my bikes. I have had a couple privately owned shops work on them, but I worked at both of them and was part of the process and they were pretty involved projects.

Dealers suck.

I have a dealer service my bike as often as I can get to see him. Once a year at least.

Thanks Eddie at OTD. :p

Oh sure, hit me with that, lol. We all know Eddie isn't considered a dealer in the way that we know them. He doesn't suck :ride:

My DRZ is my first bike and I made a decision when I bought it to force myself to learn about the mechanicals through doing my own servicing and upgrades (within reason). Thanks to this bike and this website, in a years time I have acquired a number new skills and a great deal of confidence. I plan to continue pushing myself to learn more by doing as much as I possibly can myself.

I take it one step further and do it IN my home.

I finally built my garage last summer and looking foward on doing all that I am able to myself, with the help of all you guys :p . Its nice not having to plan a repair around the weather forecast.
