I am working on performing my first valve service/belts with the help of LT’s manual. I have average skills and I am afraid that I will not have the valves and belts done before my next long weekend on the bike. The bike is a 06 ST3 with 12,000 miles on the clock and the 6000 mile service was done on time. Would you perform the service before embarking on a 1500 mile trip or wait until I get back from the trip? I will change out the belts before the trip because they are the OEM belts that are 5 years old. Thanks for any suggestions!!!
