I think my dealer had a $140 flat rate for this service. It seemed high to me, but that's what dealers do...while they had it in, he also did the brake caliper recall work, installed new iridium plugs and mounted a new rear tire, so I didn't mind paying the premium. The bike came back to me freshly washed, as well.

It's a fairly simple service, basically checks for error codes and checks that the throttles are balanced - something you can do with TuneBoy - along with an oil/filter change. There's a bunch of other "checks" listed in the manual, tho, and I watched the service guy here meticulously go thru the checklist on another bike...in short, I felt like they did me right.

If you don't trust your dealer, you're gonna feel like you took one up the pooper no matter what.

Pilot Road rear tire: $170
4 Iridium Plugs: $35
Oil & Filter: $25
- that's $248, with 6% sales tax.
add $140, I get $388. I think it was actually $396.

No - I didn't get kissed, but I got a clean bike!

OK, I missed the rear tire, that's not so bad.

Still, I would do it myself. Even the 12,000 mile service you can go as far as checking the valve clearance yourself and just take it in if you don't feel up to pulling the cams if you need to adjust the valves.

Anyone who's done the valve clearance check and adjust, did you need to replace any seals? Manual says replace as necessay. I don't want to buy one if I don't need to, but don't want to get stuck either.
To answer the original question. Minor service here costs around $200 AU , major service around $700 AU. That's with no extra's.
I'm thinking of doing my next major service myself. It should be able to do it plus get a tune boy for around the same price. :eboy:

I did my 6000 mile service myself, except for the ECU code check and throttle body balance. Dealer did those items for 1 hour labor. They were OK with me doing the rest of the stuff, and stamped my book.

Throttle bodies were just within tolerance, and the mechanic brought them dead-on.

At my dealer, they're OK with you doing most of the stuff, as long as you do it first, before bringing it in. That way, there's no question about how the bike was running.

At 12000, I'll do the same thing and have them do only the things I can't.
