There have been many posts where guys have done the 12,000 mile service themselves, including the valve lash check/adjustment. Most of the time, they say that the valves were well within tolerances and didn't need adjusting. Once in a while, someone reports that at least one valve was way out of adjustment and they're glad they took the time and did the service.
The services recommended at 12,000 miles need to be done, and will greatly extend the bike's reliable service life, but it's always your choice.
And that's "jitters".
