Hi all. I am in the process of purchasing a 2005 RC1 with a little over 12,000 miles. The bike is stock with the exception of micron pipes and a Corbin seat. They are asking 9999$. Price is a bit high (I guess), but mostly in line with bikes I see on cycle trader. Anyway, my question concerns the maintenance. I called my local Honda dealer, and they told me they don’t work on bikes that are over 15 years old. They won’t even do basic service let alone the valve check/adjustment at 16000 miles. (I think that is right)
Is this a normal thing? And if it is, what are my options? Are independent mechanics able to do the work?
Thank you

I just had a valve inspection and adjustments done on an 03. I say find a different dealer/shop. I will say dealers are a nightmare though they hate anything aftermarket and at least with my experience they were slow and attention to detail was very poor .
