    I had my 10,000 mile service, new rear brake pads, and two new tires put on this past Friday.  The dealer did a great job on the bike but now I can't afford to ride it!  :005:  I am really dreading the 20,000 mile service now!

    So I am going to go out on a limb and guess that they rocked you on the price? Over $1,000.00?

    Ya, the total for everything (10,000 service, tires, install, brake pads, etc.) was $1,200.

    I think that isn't so bad considering a pretty large chunk of that is the tires. These pirelli Angels are not cheap! They are great tires though and I do not plan on using a different type when it's time to do mine.

    You went through your brake pads in 10,000 miles? That seems a bit early to me. I have 35,000 miles on my Vision and I am still on the same pads!  I put 22,000 on the Suzuki before I had to put pads on it.  Not the end of the world or anything, just curious as to why the pads went away so quickly...

    Can't compare directly as I didn't have pads and I arranged both my tyres locally.

    My 10k service was £332 / Set of Dunlop Pilots £243 fitted = £575 ($779).

    I would check that bill and question it...

    Looks like a set of Angel A-specs can be had for $330 shipped, just as a point of reference.


    Damn Rocketsteve-you could almost buy tires AND a nomar for $779 :002:

    Yes, about $447.75 US is what I would have expected as well for a service of this type.  If we use this number and then factor in everything else I think it will make sense

    - 447.75 .............. 10K Service
    - 375.00 .............. Set of replacement Pirelli Angel Tires
    - 150.00 .............. Labor to install and balance tires
    - 120.00 .............. 2 sets of Front and 1 set of Rear brake pads
    - 100.00 .............. Labor to install pads

    And there you have it!  Service done by the dealer is expensive but if you cannot do it yourself and you have a good shop, well, it's worth it I guess. I am in the same boat.  The guys that work on my bikes really do a great job and so I bite my lip hard and write that check! It's worth it to me to know that the work was done right by guys that I trust. And actually a lady does the work now on my rides and she is fantastic.

    I replaced worn rear brake pads at 16,000, Fronts were like new.
    I just purchased Two front sets and one rear set because I am at 33,000 and figured they would need to be replaced.  Well fronts are still like new and so are the rear pads.  I paid $225 for the pads from Bike Bandit. So did they really sell you Triumph pads for 47% off.

    Unless they changed your air filter I can't see how the 10K can cost that much.  It's basically an oil change and look over everything.

    Something seems is off here to me.
