What I did (I got my Foreman in late Jan. of 2005) was this. Calling the dealer, the service guy told me that on the first service the valves usually on a Honda do not need adjusting at the 20 hr. rate. So, he told me to bring it in anyways and they would change the fluids and inspect everything.

So, I'm thinking change fluids? Lemme get this straight man, you're going to charge me $80 service charge to change my oils for me and "look" at a couple parts? I don't think so. So what I did was at 12 hrs. I changed my oil and oil filter myself just to be safe and left it at that. Saved me $80 too. My dad is highly experienced with mechanics work even with ATVs and I looked at it this way. The Foreman cranks right up without a second thought every time, idles good, goes into reverse great, etc.

I'll make my first service when the dealer reccommends the valves to be adjusted. I can't believe they'd try and rip someone off that much.

Geez... .
