    What made me think 14000 miles ? Is there anything special at this mileage in the service schedule

    Nope, but the service book says 16k, and change plugs.

    Inspect plugs at 16000, replace at 32000

    Valve shim inspection at 16k thats rocker off so quite expensive at the dealer.. And even more so if anything needs adjusting! Over 16k and people will ask if its been done when selling.

    What if you have serviced the bike yourself? No dealers stamps :(

    Well for me no service history isn't a problem if the seller has receipts for oil etc.. But price has to reflect there's no sh though..

    According to a Honda mechanic they hardly ever need adjusting at 16k

    I've done shims on bikes with 28K on them that haven't been changed and they still dont need changing, so for a fairly modern bike 14K I reckon none will need changing.

    20,000 miles on a bike is still brand new, with Hondas I would only ask for service history when the bike was getting onto the 50K+ mark.

    Years ago when I started riding bikes most people couldn't care less about mileage, it wasn't until the 90s when you had the reborns started coming in and buy new bikes yearly ( good for dealers ) and putting 5K on on the in one year through Sunday only use, that this low mileage crap started happening.
