yeah no problem. unless they stated they did an inspection on the bike, i would still do a check on it. the 1300 is injected so its easier. carb bikes are tempermental. Mine vapor locked the other day. but doing your own inspection is a way to learn about your bike. Bare min, check the breaks and tires. and the drive belt. Do you know when the valves were adjusted? my v-star 1100 says every 4000 miles.
The owners mannual says to adjust every 4000 miles or six months, as you say. My bike was serviced at 16,000 and only has 17000 on her now. I'll have to get a service manual or google the procedure. I did get a two year warranty on the engine and tranny.
