60k miles service job

my 02 919 which from the past owners has been serviced on schedule. and i usually see a 60k mile service job for other bikes. so im assuming theres one at that mileage for mine.

what exactly does the shop do when you service the bike? who would be the best to take it to? honda? or any motorcycle repair type place.

is it like the oil is changed the fluids are all checked and its just an overall check up of the bike? or am i mistaken?

Here's service schedule. The biggest service (includes valve clearance checks) is at 16K intervals so I would think 64K would be the next big one.

The biggest part of a 60k checkup would be whether the valve clearance has been checked recently; if it hasn't, that should be done.
Best case is the valves are in clearance = cheap.
If they're not, then more $ to swap out shims and fix it up.

Beyond that, if the oil hasn't been changed in awhile, of course that should be done.

When was the last time the coolant was flushed?

You might look at your clutch cable -- if it looks remotely ratty, just replace.

Look at brake pads.

At 60k, the wheel bearings are probably on the way out.
Also, head bearings.

Also, check your rotors and see where they are at.
