You can easily buy the service manual and the minimal tools needed for the 1st service for that price. The question is, do you want to maintain the bike yourself?They have just quoted me 275 USD for the first service, no valve inspection required since it's a 2016. I find it a bit pricey.. worth it?
I had mine done last Wednesday. $199.++ I think it is worth it.They have just quoted me 275 USD for the first service, no valve inspection required since it's a 2016. I find it a bit pricey.. worth it?
People complain about the cost, but it cost a bunch to keep the doors open these days. How often do we hear about dealerships that close up and go out of business. Live and let live.I had mine done last Wednesday. $199.++ I think it is worth it.
The oil absolutely must be changed and the other fluids topped. They go over the whole bike .... No valve check now it would be way more economical if you could do it yourself. You are paying for labor. It would take me two or three times that in hours counting time learning what it involves and teaching myself anything I don't already know how to do. Plus figure in the time spent getting any too!s that are not already in your toolbox.
I find the ancillary work can be a real time burner. Time I would rather spend riding.
Btw: I wish service was included in the purchase like a warranty type of thing but I think motorcycle businesses have margins more akin to bicycle shops than automobile sales. All the profitability is in the service and I am happy they are there for the work when I don't want to do it or I need their expertise.
In my country, free lifetime service (labour only).wow, here it is 2 years unlimited kms,
