depends on how much mechanical skill you have, and the tools,
time and facilities you can devote to your bike. Some things
must be done by your dealer, but its pretty straightforward
to do your own maintenance on your RT. The first thing you
need to do is get the Hayne's Manual for the RT.
S. Bohn, < Mbohn@rentk.com>
of Denver Colorado has developed some detailed checklists
for working on his R1100R. (The bikes are mechanically the
same enough that each sheet should work for the RT, but
if someone would like to amend these sheets for the RT to
reflect the differences between the R and the RT, that would
be great. Besides removing all that Tupperware, I don't
think there is a lot of difference.) Mark's worksheets give
a step-by-step procedure for performing the minor and major
services on an R1100R. These are based on the Haynes manual
but rather than jumping around from one chapter to the next,
everything is listed sequentially. Parts required and torque
specs are given too.

use when reporting service activity.
