Download a service manual and get to it. Have valve clearances been checked, if not you should have that done as they should have been checked around 14,500 miles.

For me, yes that is a lot, but I have never had a dealer touch a bolt ever on any of my bikes....So I guess really wouldn't know. Definitely get a manual like Sam said and try to at least do the easier stuff yourself, and save yourself a bit of coin.

Re: new to site

If properly maintained and taken care of, you could expect to get another 80,000+ miles out of it. There is a CBR that has over 200,000 and counting. Sadly, most of these bikes are crashed long before they reach any kind of mileage.

Love the white and black look, very clean.
20k miles isn't a lot, i've seen sportbikes with double that. It just depends on how well you take care of it.
