    People in the US who went to a dealer for their 600 mile service, how much should I expect it to cost?

    • $250 for me

    • I only paid for my oil. Agreed with the dealer at time of doing the deal

    • And I know I'm not in the USA

    • Nice deal. I wish I'd thought to ask them to throw that in when I bought the bike. I do pretty much all of my own work so this will be one of the few times that I pay the dealer for service.

    • Rick, did the same with my first Versys 5 years ago

    • I'll remember that the next time I buy a bike.

    • Usd $ 45 in Ecuador. Includes 2 quarter of oil, filer, and Jobs

    • Not all dealers here in the uk do it. I've been lucky in that I've known the guys at Bournemouth Kawasaki for a very long time

    • What do they do other than change the oil? I can do that myself. Do they make other adjustments?

    • Not really. Visual inspection and re-torquing nuts and bolts. Most people have it done so they don't risk voiding the warranty.

    • Justin , Rick just beat me to what I was going to say

    • My 600 mile check was $145.

    • makes sense. better safe than sorry I guess. I just wanted to know a ballpark price so if they quote me $250+ I can know i'm getting ripped off

    • Well, guessing the hourly dealer service rate is going to vary a lot by location, too, to be fair. Strikes me that mine was about $175 but that included installing my lowering link.

    • Jim Colbert The shop I go to is $75/hour. Can't imagine it would cost more than $150 in that case

    • Justin Chapman Agreed!

    • I looked into this more and doing the services yourself does not void the warranty, as long as you have receipts and document the process. That being said, I may just do it myself. Just need to figure out which bolts they check the torque on

    • That is true. I've just always taken the approach that the dealer is going to have a more trained eye than mine when it comes to looking over a bike that's new to me. Having said that, since they really don't do much of anything it should be easy for anyone to do.

    • Take the bike to the shop in March, get it back in October. "Sorry, we are just so swamped" is what I hear. I bought the manual and I do my own servicing.

    • It is true. I like to have first service and first valve adjustment done by the dealer, but I normally do maintenance myself.
