Service Interval: Here We Go Again

Having owned a 2016 TVL and now a 2019 TVL SCS, I am a little disappointed (again) with dealer service or more specifically, knowledge. The owners manual clearly states the recommendations for service intervals. I followed them religiously on my '16. I just had the 600 mile service completed by the MV Agusta dealer on my' 19. The tech was adamant about bringing it back at 3500 miles for valve service and then some more mumbling about a 6K service. He said all the F3 800's need this. The maintenance intervals as stated in the manual are 9K miles, period! I will undoubtedly change oil and filter every 3000 or so but valve adjustments and a 6K service? The tech set the ECU to display a 'service' message at 3500 miles. Scratching my head about this.

He needs the income..... And hasn't read up on latest models. Unlike doctors and other professionals, these guys don't have to get continuing education.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Maintenance schedule is not the same on the TV/TVL. Every 15k km. That being said, as per the schedule, valves are every 30k km for the TV. My dealer advised to do it at 15k km as well. so basically, everything every 15k.

That being said, this schedule is likely overestimated, at least for the cush drives rubbers. But in some case, even the 6k km is also overestimated for those...

Indeed in my opinion no need for such an early valve checking. Never had big issues on 20.000 kms plus F4 valve checking.
Anyway for those who did have to make serious adjustment did you experience any type of "alert" that pronounced that need?
The Ducati guys normally say difficult start - profund choke - I'm wondering any particular sign on the inline 4.
