Hi guys
Whats a rough guestimate for the cost of the 20000 mile service?

Hi Sneezy,

I had a Service Plan for the first two major services that cost £399 inc VAT ( Tax )
and was supposed to represent a £180 saving over paying for them separately.

IIRC the Service at 10,000 miles usually costs around £190.00, 
so the Guestimate for the 20,000 miles service would be around £390.00.

Cheers  :821:

Just had an annual done that was the equivalent of a 10000 mile service that cost US $309.00 with part of that being state inspection and something unrelated to scheduled service.  The receipt showed US $260.00 for the service only.  I asked about the 20000 mile service cost and was told that it was in the US $800.00 range since most of the plastic had to come off.  I think it's still reasonable compared to the 6000 mile interval of a K1600 and the 18000 mile service on those being around US $900.00.

Looking at the prices being quoted here It looks like the dealers are not doing everything they should in the 10k service as all the plastic should come off for the 10k as the air filter spark plugs and throttle bodies should be checked.

It doesn't take that long to get the Fairings off once you are used to doing it,
( and don't have to resort to reading "HOW TO: Remove the Fairing" guides on where all the screws are ! )

Just a thought, but maybe Triumph also deliberately discount that First 10,000 mile service cost,
to make it more attractive to anyone considering buying one ?

I dont think its Triumph my dealer quoted £320 for the 10k some on here have paid only £190 that is a massive difference and I can only assume some work is considered unnecessary by the cheaper dealers as I know my dealer very well and he does every thing to the book.
My mate with a VFR had the same thing when it came to his 16k service first quote was £350 second was £650 when he queried the price the first dealer said they don't do the valve check as they never need adjusting!

The 10k is a smaller service. I've paid £290 ish and was budgeting £ 300 again for the 40k but sold the bike at 35k.
I was allowing about £550 for the 20k but since Triumph kindly did valves etc at the engine recall I saved a bit and so I only paid £407.
My dealer allowed 2 hours on top of what Triumph prescribed for the last 2 services on the last bike. He reckons Triumph forget that a bike gets used in the real world and it can take a while to get the plastic off, never mind getting it back on.
