These are things that should be done periodically. At the dealer you will pay an exorbitant price for lubricants as well. No one will care for your bike better than you.
I'm interested here : what's to be lubricated on the shifter?

The pivot point. Not much more than loosening and removing the collar bushing (basically a large nut with a bolt on the inboard side) and cleaning and lubricating the male and female bushings.

See parts 6-12 on this exploded view.

Great. Thanks for the input. That can't do any harm.

$750 is a lot for a 12,000 mile service? For sure, Ducati is WAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY pricier. I had the 15k service done on my 2014 Multistrada (and got a tune) which came to $1,5xx. Another tick in the column for buying a GS/A over another Multistrada. Granted you have to take off body work, remove the tank and operate in a small space on the Multi which is probably where the costs come into play.

They wanted the same For my Ducati Monster. I sold it and bought the GS. I have 1150 miles on my BMW so I’m in your situation also

JB VonBaden lives not TOO far from you and has tech days at least once a year. They're great.

So I want to modify this. I learned on another forum that the shifter bushing is made of PFTE and should not be lubed. Cleaning is a good idea.
