    Am I getting to be an old tight git or are we being shafted?
    Shaft-driven, and shafted by dealers. I don't mind paying professional hourly rates for a trained mechanic, but there are many time-consuming tasks which do not require a fully trained mechanic. Surely an apprentice can remove and refit fairing panels, and drain oil? Too few dealers, and satisfied (non-complaining) riders makes for an unhealthy equation. I would love to see my dealer's balance sheet, and compare profit margins between new and used bike sales, clothing and accessories, and workshop....

    Yes, it should be so, but even if it is done by an apprentice. They charge the established hourly price, be it an apprentice or a specialized mechanic.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    I think the hourly rate looks pretty steep TBH, should be around 65 - 70 I would think, mind you that even sounds a lot to me, maybe I'm a tight old git as well  :745:

    I am having the 20,000 mile service done right now.  I am expecting it to be $1,200 or so.  Bleh!    :087:

    My Dealers prices are, 12 mth/ Annual service - 210 inc MOT 220.  10000 mile service 365.  20000 mile - 565   Valve clearance Adj + 150.           30000 mile - 375.   40000 mile 625 + Valve clearance Adj +150.

    If service is booked between Nov and Feb MOT is free and if I remember correctly there is a 20% discount on servicing on bikes over 3 years old during this time
    .
    Coolant and Brake fluid check carried out at prescribed times, price for replacement is 60 inc fluid.

    Having my bike serviced by the dealer I bought it from, I get a 12month warranty on the engine/gearbox with that service, not sure how comprehensive it would be in the event of a major or even minor engine failure.

    Hi Coconut

    I've been told 8 hours for Service so late today, but it needs a part, a shim, so I'll not get it back 'till late Thursday, two days but they loaned me a very nice Scrambler.  Had fun riding that so a day out on it tomorrow whilst I await the call to pick up my bike.

    Grubloon, sounds similar pricing.  I have been told my 80,000 mile service is 970.  This includes the valve adjustment and shims, all fluids including brake flush.

    I was also told my discs were below the wear limits and quoted 700 for three new discs and pads.  I have priced the parts on Fowlers and they come to 477.  I have a full new set of pads I bought from an ex TTSE owner on this site at a very reduced price compared to new and I'm now looking for aftermarket discs.

    Final update when we are back together on the road again.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave
