Can any UK owners shed any light on the servicing schedule for the CB500 range?

I would guess a 600 mile first oil service to get rid of the running in oil and check it over, maybe valve clearance checks as well. Anyone had it done or got a quote yet?

After that what is the frequency of servicing? My Transalp was every 4000miles or every 6 months, whichever came first! Needless to say I didn't bother and did it myself - saving probably a £1000 over the 3 years I had it.

I'm interested as it can add up to quite a lot of cash over the years so it's always good to know before.

Cheers

John

Hi there.

First 600 miles is as you state. Not yet had mine but initial quotes are between £150-£200 (different dealers).

Then it's every 8,000miles which is quite a lot of a gap. So overall running costs if you stick to the manual should be pretty decent over the years.

That said, the manual has Annual checks/ inspections, which includes oil / filter change. and Crankcase breather clean.

Guess it depends on how many miles you do but I generally change the oil every 6 months..
