I was also quoted about $240. I figured it about $40 for the oil and filter and 30 minutes for the labor. That means we're being asked to pay $400 per hour for labor. A bit much in my book.my dealer quoted me $240 in nj... picking it up with 0 miles on her saturday when its 55 degrees out and sunny
@jsonder, heard that you need to do the first service at 600miles is that a gimmick??? said they do oil & filter change plus re torque all the bolt down from tire to tire.... hmmmmMy 2014 went to the dealer for it's first time at 10,875 miles for a starter relay replacement. I had pulled the mid-cowls to access the headlight and replace the bulb, and left them off until I do the valve clearance inspection and adjustment next month. It is early, mileage wise, but I tend to err on that side.
A service manual can save you a fair amount of money if you are patient and willing to learn.
Not a gimmick, but, if you do it yourself you need to take pictures and keep receipts for parts, oil, etc, to maintain the warranty in the USA. I keep a log book that is 1/2 gas and 1/2 service work, parts, etc. There are different requirements in other countries.
The warranty is for 1 year. In my area that equals 6 month of riding. So from my perspective, the warranty isn't really that good. But I guess it depends on where you're located and how many miles you can put on in a year.Picked my new ride up on the weekend, was told $260aud for first service including valve clearance check. Pricey but guess warranty is worth the go ahead,
Only the 2013 bikes required a valve clearance check at 600 miles. From 2014 on, the first valve check is at 16,000 miles.Picked my new ride up on the weekend, was told $260aud for first service including valve clearance check. Pricey but guess warranty is worth the go ahead,
There are different laws in different countries. In the USA they can't void the warranty if you show that the work was done, properly. Photos in progress and receipts should be sufficient.They can't void you warranty if you do the first service yourself. Same for using any oil of your choice, they can't void the warranty.
Heck, they only have a one year warranty on these bikes, when most companies have a 2 year warranty these days.
I paid $189 in NJ. It consisted of all the items on the Honda maintenance list for 600 miles: including oil, filter, check and adjust drive chain, cables, fluids etc. It did not include valve checking or adjustment which is specified at 25k miles.Hi all, just got my bike back, from first 1000 Km service. The total bill, 337 $ this includes, the valve inspection ! just wondering, what others have paid ? Around the same, less more ??
