Basic maintenance of tightening bolts etc lubing, fluid level checking and chainging oil is pretty easy really. You may need to invest in a few tools (Dont skimp...cheap bad quality tools make for bad work and if you get into it then you will buy good tools anyway so will have spent even more). If you want to get into valve adjustment, engine work etc you should get yourself a torque wrench otherwise you may have problems.
The manual is excellent for step by step work on complicated areas and as a reminder on more imoportant things to maintain and frequency.

Did the Air filter yesterday and it was easy. Will do an oil change tonight.
