I don’t have experience working on bikes. I’ve only worked on my Ninja 400, and even some simple things on it seem difficult to me. I don’t aspire to be a mechanic, I would be fine doing any small jobs or mods but if I crashed it, or I couldn’t figure out what’s wrong, or wanted a big install done like a tune or full system exhaust, id wanna bring it to someone who knows better than me.Seriously who cares how close your motorcycle dealer is to you unless they are a close friend.
High end product is easier to work on, it's the cheap stuff that is near impossible to fix. That applies to almost every machine you buy.
