It looks like a security torx fastener, any hardware store should have those bits. Which sort of defeats the security part of it

Install them, then take them to the dealer to have them activated in the dash. start bike, then push the start button to see the menu, again to toggle through low/med/high/off

not the "correction" i was hoping for.

i mean that seems fair. i only paid $11,000 for a brand new bike. the least they can do is charge me $35. so sweet of them.

kindest

My dealer did it free during my 160 dollar first service. Seeing as that is the last service I'll pay for til 18K miles, I'd say ownership is looking pretty cheap.

OK, a little sarcasm there. My first dealer would have done it for free. My current dealer charged me $35 to reset the oil service light.

Just depends. Certain shops can do it out of spite cause they lost $400 by you not getting grips installed through them.
