…...nothing you could not do better than them.
It is your machine. The mechanics don't know you personally, and your bike is just one more in a line, and their(mechanics) performance is measured against time....meaning; if they can cut corners to look better, they would ....plus, no doubt the dealer uses the cheapest oil they can purchase. At least, I play it safe and assume all this.
...my bike was a leftover '16 purchased brand new in '19. I changed the oil at only 26 indicated miles next day.. It came out black, thick, with milky shades. Either, they let it sit for over two years in the bike, or filled it with used oil. They also tried trickle charging the battery in the bike after two years. They admitted it. Did not work.
….I did my own 600 mi service, changing oil and filter, and other checks.
