    I don't have the manual in front of me so going by memory but I can't understand why they would want some of the fluids changed at 20 hours they specify. Seems the front and rear diff was on the list. Clutch fluid maybe. I just remember looking at the list and thinking what the heck.

    Get a quote with both the valves actually being measured per the shop manual and IAW the owners manual, and a quote with the valves not actually being checked, just "Listened" too. If the price is the same for both quotes, the Dealer, IMO is being dishonest (unless the Service Department can provide a Yamaha Training Certificate of Audio Measurment to within .001 of an inch) and your money would be better spent elsewhere.

    I cringe to say it, but my first service was $515! I'm not really complaining, though. There is ample evidence that they actually covered everything, including changing the spark plugs because they found weird, rust-colored deposits on them (I've since figured out the cause). So, now that everthing is torqued to specs, all the break-in fluids have been changed, and linkages have been adjusted, I'll handle it from here.

    What caused the plugs to look weird?

    It took me a bit to figure out. My chainsaws require 91 octane fuel, but my ATV and Wolverine get by on the cheap stuff. I usually buy 10 gallons of regular at a time in order to save a little money and treat all of it with an octane booster for the chainsaw. Seemed to work. It turns out that the booster I used, Royal Purple, contains the additive MMT (I don't know what it stands for) which often leaves rust-colored deposits on spark plugs. I wished I'd known that ahead of time. Won't be buying that stuff anymore. Not all octane boosters contain this additive, Klotz, for example. I treated the gas that's in my X2 now with the RP before figuring out that it was the cause of my plug deposits and it has developed an intermittent, low throttle miss. I'll monitor it and see how it goes after a couple of tanks of unadulterated fuel.
