Ask your bike shop. Or neighbourhood bike shop.  most shops shouldn’t charge u for disposing your oil cuz they collect them in barrel to sell for recycling..

How many of you maintain your own? 
so far only tyre change I cannot DIY.. 

always have a dream of doing my own servicing, my 2b bike change oil and spark plug should not be an issue. when my next service is due i will do it on my own.

question bro, where do you discard of the used engine oil? i think it's an offence to pour it down the drain. do u bring it to a bike shop to dispose? will they charge you for disposal?

What are the simple things that you will be able to do at home?

  • Engine oil change
  • CVT oil change
  • Spark plug change
  • Air filter change
  • Lube chain

Anything else? Not very handy with tools but would be a nice challenge to do my own servicing.

Self maintenance can be a good skill to equipped as a rider BUT there is a limit of what one can do in term of places, equipment and knowledge available.

General stuff I do: mantainance lub parts/ Blub & Fuse/ EO & Oil filter/ Air Filter/ Spark Plug/ Coolant Top up/ Cosmetic fix up.

More complicated: Chain or Belt tension/ Brake Pad cleaning and replacement/ Installation of basic electronics devices.

Other than those, I need a Pro level to assist.

For the complicated part, for newbie dont try unless you know and understand what you are doing as it pose danger while riding. 😅

I moved from maintain motorcycles to scooter. Mostly same as in engine but drive and transmission, totally another animal!😆😆

Belt drive good lah..smoother, closed system ( no more filthy chain and sprocket to maintain😆😆!) and last longer too. But scooter drive, you need a specialised assortment of tools and do the service professionally and properly( not like Ah Beng shops...which everything goes piak..piak..piak with air drive torque tools and use their hands as calibrated torque wrenches)!!😆😆😆

What about shaft-drive like on the BMW GS? Just to make things a little more confusing.
