Even as a 30+ years rider, I leave most maintenance to pro wrenchers. Sure I can do oil changes, cable tweak, chain tensions etc. But of all these - I focus on maintaining any cables (since it's pretty easy) and watch chain tension. The latter is hard only in that you need a stand and a proper C spanner.
The things that appear simple to regular vehicles - oil change for example - suck for us because of the fairings. It's super easy to snap off the tabs that hold the body work on and the next thing you know - you saving a few bucks to change your own oil filter just cost you over $2,000 to replace the body work.
I do suggest reading, watching videos etc - especially for things you are going in to get done. Then maybe chat up the tech and discuss them. Only way you'll learn. One day you too can wrench on these. All bikes are pretty similar. Though newer bikes just add more and more electronics and cabling. Those electronics have become our bane in that an oil change still requires the dealer to reset the warning message.
But, if you're going to learn anything - memorize the preflight. Tire pressure checks, no kinked cables, lights working. Those can/will save your life.
