Default Servicing?

Hi all, new biker, was going to hold out but just got a good deal curtesy of this forum
Got pretty much all the service history, the 2001 k1? curvy had it's 15,000 mile service last year and has done a further 5000. Should I get a service done immediately? Or could I wait off till summer and the overdraft is a bit lighter?

Cheers.

Oh, and a great forum here, thanks to the hosts.

It'd be overdue anyway now wouldn't it? I don't know what the intervals are, but I'm sure they're not 5000 miles.

I would get it done now, as Northwind says its overdue

I get my Curvey serviced every 4000 miles as per recommendation of the mechanic at my dealer. But I think the official interval may be 3500 ?

IIRC for the curvy it's comlpetely half-a**ed, something like 4000,4000,3000 with a big service every 12... But that could be all wrong. I just do big big small, big big small, every 3500-4000, and it's not melted yet.
