Doing your own service doesn't void your factory warranty, but it can happen...

The 600 mile service is mainly an inspection:
-Engien Idle Speed
-Brakes and Clutch System
-Nuts, Bolts, and Fasteners
-Steering Head Bearings
-Drive Chain
-Replace Oil/Oil Filter

You can do this yourself and not void the warranty. If you take your bike to a dealership with a warranty issue they shouldn't say anything. If after the bike has been evaluated Honda asks for service records, this is the critical part.

If you do your own work on your bike you should keep a record of what was done, dates, miles, and the reciept of replaced items.

If you don't have these records and Honda request them from the dealership, then you could have your warranty voided. (So if Honda doesn't ask for records there shouldn't be an issue)

Here in USA i have couple of torque wrenches and many sets of tools, and they come handy for my motorcycle!
I have a toolbox full of Sears Craftsman tools. Never had a single problem with them in the 30+ years of ownership.

That 'by feel' is just about how you end up breaking something/reducing its life/kill yourself. You didn't have the tools a the time because you couldn't afford it. The tools are very much needed and torquing to spec is quite important if you are doing any real work.

No, it doesn't. As long as you keep the receipts of any oil, filters, etc., that you buy you can do ALL of your own routine mainetenance and it will not void your warranty.

If your dealer told you otherwise they lied to you to steal your money.
