I was having a bit of a challenge keeping track of maintenance activities for my big V. The way the schedule is laid out in the manual is...challenging. So like all of life's challenges, I fixed it with a spreadsheet!

I decided I couldn't be the only one who thinks the manual layout is garbage, so I moved it into a Google sheet and will now share it.

Huzzah!

All I need to do now is highlight cells as I complete them. You can too! Just File > Make a Copy for yourself.

If anything seems off or the symbols are not showing, let me know.

Enjoy!

Cool.  :7:

You also found a way to attach spreadsheets, which can't be done using the attachments function.


Admin Edit: Thats not entirely correct, you can attach xls files

I'd like to evolve this to have the function to list only what you need based on a distance and time entry. For example, if I just passed 8k miles and need to know what to do, just give me a list of that. Not sure if Google Sheets can do macro-level stuff like that though.

I also think it can be applied to other Kawi bikes as well. Would need to look at a few other manuals to know if they boilerplate this stuff.

Great!  Thanks for that.   I just downloaded it as an Excel spreadsheet and it all looks good.

Hello all,

I have gotten a few edit requests for this sheet. I am sure the intent is good, but I can't offer edit privs without risking someone breaking it by accident. Good news though, you can make a copy for yourself. Just make sure you are logged into a Google account, and use the "Make Copy" function:



Then you can edit all you like!

Thanks!
