2008 1500FI Vulcan Classic Owners Manual

Somehow I lost my owners manual. I just turned 20,000 miles. I don't want to take it to the stealership for service because I have a friend who owns a motorcycle mechanic shop. My question is: would one of you guys who owns the same bike as me mind letting me know what scheduled maintenance is required at 20,000 miles. I intend to buy a new manual but for now I want to have the scheduled maintenance done before I put it away for the winter. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks
