Default First service 2012 Brute 750

So, I'm over 100 miles, and just about to 10 hours. The manual isn't as straight forward as I thought it would be, as far as the maintenance schedule. Besides engine oil change, what do I need to do, when I hit 10 hours? Is there anything that needs to be done by a dealer? I want to make sure I don't skip anything that might give me issues with the warranty.

I would do motor oil & filter, front & rear diff oils, check valves & belt deflection, check throttle and diff lock adjustment, check air filter & generally run over the whole machine to check for anything that may be loose like tie rods, wheels & bearings, exhaust, wheel alignment etc.

That's a good, all encompassing list.
I personally wouldn't check the valves at this point, especially if I had to pay a dealer to do it. I don't check the belt deflection unless I sense there's a problem, but that comes with experience. That being said, many of the new Kawasaki's seem to be coming with the belt set too loose, so it ought to be checked.
