key words "2005" fast forward to 2010........5 years later. does your manual still say to check valves at 10k too?

Yes it does say 10,000 mi. Did the HD guys make a mistake? Anyway, I would think you would check your oil and make sure you were to the top of the dip stick. I was just sayin....

No, you missed the point. a service bulletin came out to adjust the 10k miles to 15k miles on all bikes (but the drag) retroactively.
that means yours too............... your book is no longer accurate about the valves or the oil........
