Yes it is ABS, has hand guards, crash bars , not sure how good the light in the hand guards are. At 10,000 miles I would suggest that as part of the deal to get a valve shim done, although depending on the dealer, they may just say it was done and have no measurements , before and after. Many of us have DIY on this forum, complete with photos and tools required. I have absolute trust in my dealer, however he is 60 miles away and I have all the tools and expertise , and in reality, a first class job with before and after measurements recorded, I would expect to pay $450 to $500 USD for a first class job. Having your own tools is a minimum $450 saving or purchasing everything, you stand to save about $300 the first time .
