I'm in such a mood today...
So you buy a $40k + motorcycle notorious for needing warranty work, and then buy what I assume was a very expensive ESP but you balk at the $300 or $400 first service.
That first service is expensive, unnecessarily so, but call it initiation into the club.  Then do all the rest yourself.
Edit:  My 2016 needs a $600 service every 12k miles.  And a $300 service every 6000 miles.  I do them all myself.

I bought a $30k bike... a relatively cheap ESP (under $1k) and I am researching what I was told by a dealer that differs from what I have seen in the manual. No I would not call a lying dealer and throwing money away initiation into the club. Yes $300-400 may cover the oil change. It will not cover the plugs or clutch and brake fluid flush. Also, I don't know what your income is like but mine is not disposable. If I can properly do the job myself and save hundreds of dollars... yes I am going to do it. If throwing hundreds of dollars away is how you are accustomed to being initiated, let me know, I got a few clubs for you. They accept PayPal, Venmo, Cash app, etc.

As long as you doing the work yourself has no adverse affect on your ESP then just change the 3 holes and go put some miles on it. It's not rocket science.

Why over pay for the first and then do the rest yourself? Why not just do the first yourself?

Totally disagree, I have never paid for a first or 1K service. I have had 2 that were included with the bike when I bought during a "Sale" weekend. Just absolutely nothing to be gained by paying $300 + for an oil/pri/trans fluid change. I also wouldn't use a quicky oil change facility either for my vehicles but to each his own. I had never paid for an oil change in anything until the last few years, the dealer for one of our cars sends coupons out regularly and does it using Mobil 1 for about what the oil would cost me &  the other car has 3 year all maintenance included, they even come pick it up & leave us a similar car to drive. Otherwise I find oil changes a good time to look everything over and check stuff I normally don't.

I get two years of pre paid maintenance with the bike when I buy the bike.  Its a pretty good deal if you ride a lot,

2 years of pre-paid is 1200 dollars last time I bought it.

so far the bike has had:
1000 mile
5000 mile
10,000 mile
15,000 mile
20,000 mile
25,000 mile
30,000 mile
35,000 mile

Bike will have 40K done before its 2 years, don't think I'll make 45K. 
So at 40K miles the service cost me 133.33 each service.  Bike also gets washed after service.  Dealer has a good BBQ joint and full bar.   So the service is a good deal for me.  The wait is not bad as their is food and drink.

I’ve done all 3 hole services myself on both my bikes since new and all my vehicles all my life. Only advantages I’ve seen by taking a vehicle of any type to a dealer for maintenance services you may get a questionable warranty situation taken care of, vehicle wash, cleaning etc.
