    First service is at 620 miles, not required. Oil/filter change only, go over the entire bike with wrenches/sockets, etc. Clean, adjust and lube the chain, yes it will need it by 600 miles.
    Second service at 6200 miles, yes, I changed mine. Stock NGK plugs, I bought a couple of 4 packs of them.

    To change the plugs, you'll have to remove the airbox cover, throttle body, airbox, and coils. If it's apart for a valve adjust at (6000 or more), all that stuff is off already so you could replace them but if your tune is good, I doubt you'd need to. Plugs on newer cars can last 100,000 miles so 600, 6000, or 12,000 on a motorcycle is nothing.

    I'm at 11k miles on original plugs. Runs great.
