its really an easy if not, a no brainer task. tape them to avoid any cost, or if you burnt your fuse, simply unbolt two bolts on your left ram cover then pull your fuse box, and take out and replace your fuse. there should be an extra 10 or 7.5 extra fuse inside. its 50 0r 40 more coin in your pocket. itll take you a minute or 2 to do this

all that for flushmounts? with no prior motorcycle disassembly knowledge i did both sides with zero problems in like half an hour.

learn how to do your own work man, your going to be wasting ALOT of money having everything you do done by some clown that probably is gonna screw stuff up anyways.

ya well it took me a minute to install em after...a hour and a half till i figured out that all i had to do was push a little button on the middle of the screws to get em out and another half an hour lookin for the damn screws on the ground :D ...ya youre right maybe ill take out the stickers myself but the rest look complicated so ill let someone else screw it up :D

That much time to install flushmount turn signals? :)

Just friendly advice if you will. Whenever dealing with a lot of screws make up ziploc bags to keep the screws from getting lost. Label the bags if you have to. It might be trivial but it might save some ass pain in the long run.

I have a feeling that you might have quite a few dealer bills in the future. Two hours for flushmounts? I can see why you want a dealer to do it, but expect you to pay dearly when it comes to basic maitenance because you don't know how. $120 oil changes $75 filter change, overpriced 4,000 and 8,000 service. I don't even want to know how long it will take you to install a fender eliminator with turn signals.

you will feel so much better doing it yourself, took you 2 hours the first time because it was all alien to you, not that you know what to do i bet you could install them in half hour.
Everything is harder at first, but you will feel alot better about yourself doing it yourself, not to mention that you will have more leftover money for mods

I was scared to work on my own bike at first too, the first couple times it takes a while, but you also feel so much better knowing that you did the work yourself.

I agree with above... riding is one hobby... maintaining your bike is another. If you can afford to have it professionally maintained that's awesome. More fun challenging yourself mechanically after a week of sitting behind a desk.

Just did my first oil change on my first bike (99 r6). Was fun, but messy lol, previous asshat didn't lube the oil filter ring, I had to literally rip it out... doing spark plugs and air filter tomorrow.
