    Nope, chain is not a service item. In addition to the above, the only thing I'd say is brake fluid - should be done every two years.

    I would just suggers having a good poke around the brake pads and disks, just to check for leaks (on the suspension too while you have the wheels off) and pad/disk wear.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    "in theory" a chain doesn't need changing.

    I suppose Mark would be best placed for advise though
