    What is done at the 6,000 mile service on a K1600GTL and what does it generally cost in the USA?

    Tks in advance!

      Here you go: https://www.ascycles.com/pdf/ServiceSchedules/K1600GTL_6K.pdf
      AS Cycles has a full list of service schedules for all models on their website.
      Oil and oil filter change are the biggest item here unless the checks reveal a problem (which probably still would fall under your warranty then, I'd hope so).

        hey CSM,  I taught myself to do all my own work except for once a year I take her in for a full warranty inspection/diagnostic.  You will find plenty of documentation on this forum to walk you though most any troubleshooting/repair/preventative maintenance.  I even did my own valve inspection last fall and changed my spark plugs, coolant and air filter.  Got to say the K1200 was much easier to do but the K16 is doable by the average rider that has the time and ambition.  I personally feel better and more confident on a longer road trip because I know more of how the bike operates down to the nuts and bolts.  Don't be afraid to do some things yourself especially tire changes, rear differential oil, brake flushes, condensate drain, coolant, ect.  It is not a scary as it looks.  Good Luck .

          E7,

          When refilling the coolant does it need a pressurised system like on the K1200/1300's?

            No pressurizing.  You do have to bleed out the air from the bleed screw located in a rather hidden spot near where your left knee would be.  see link

                Please be advised to read the post in the link carefully. There are two bleedings screws on this bike.
