4000 mile maintenance

This calls to clean the Crankcase Breather. Does anyone do this? I would have to remove plastic. I always seem to break something.

not me, I can't fathom that anything would clog it up near that soon.


25,000 miles? yeah,

As you're living on the Wet Coast I'd check it to get a handle on how fast it fills with crud.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

On previous 1800s it's a simple matter, there is a clear hose with a plug in the end that can be accessed without removing anything. Not having a manual for the 2018 model I can't say.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

If I am looking at the correct manual, several panels need to be removed. I cannot post links yet

Is it the owners manual that came with the bike?

Looks pretty simple to me and you can probably position it so you don't have to remove anything next time.
