HINT: These are maintenance and inspection items which are considered to be the owner's responsibility.
They can be done by the owner or they can have them done at a service shop.
These items include those which should be checked on a daily basis, those which, in most cases, do not require special tools and those which are considered to be reasonable for the owner to do.
Items and procedures for general maintenance are as follows.
