Well your owners manual should tell you.

I would think that your valves would be checked. Maybe the coolant. And of coarse when you say oil change... I'm sure you mean..

Oil, filter, chain adjust and lube, tire check and alignment...

The 12K may also include a fork oil change...

What year and model do you have? if it's an '03 or older than chances are you can find the manual to download on one of the sticky's here at TWF. Not sure which forum it's in though.

There's nothing wrong with them... they work fine... just the spools are a bit nicer.

I prefer the universal style. You can use one stand on most any bike with just small adjustments.
