This is maintenance that you can do yourself (though the manual says you need a dealer to do it).

Important

If the air filter is dirty, the engine could get damaged. Therefore, this might translate in required service or replacement of the wear parts earlier than specified in the scheduled maintenance chart.

Every 1000 km/600 miles miles OR 6 months (whichever comes earlier, perform the following maintenance:

Check engine oil level
Check brake fluid level
Check tyre pressure and wear
Check the drive chain tension and lubrication. f necessary, contact your dealer to
adjust components.
Check chain and sprocket for wear. If necessary, contact your dealer to replace
components.
Check brake pads. If necessary, contact your Dealer to replace components
