First service cost

I take it quite a few of you have taken your bike in for its 600 mile first service.

Can any of you tell me how much you were charged my dealer is quoting £120 which I think is a bit much for what is basically an oil change!

Same price i paid, wasn't too happy about it either. I would have expected it in the initial cost of the purchase price as the oil has to be changed as it's 'supposedly thinner oil for the running in process... so not like you've a choice warranty wise...

Yeh I was a bit shocked to be honest!

My previous bike was £20 for the first service!.

I suppose the good thing is pretty good service intervals from then on isnt it?

Yes and that's probably why they charge so much for the first one

It's a well known fact we pay through the nose for most things over here (pay too much), so that price doesn't surprise me...

I paid £130 at SMC Bikes in Sheffield. I was a bit shocked as well to see that price. But this is my first bike so I wasn't sure what to expect.

Due to my busy schedule and trying to book the bike in, it had its first service at 806 miles. Oops! Not bad to say I have only had the bike a month and it's not my primary mode of transport.

I paid £120. It's a lot to pay for what is basically and oil + filter change but I reckon it was worth it for warranty peace of mind as the first service is pretty crucial. I can't see a warranty claim succeeding if the first service hasn't been properly stamped by a dealer. I'll be doing future services myself, though. Hopefully, the XSR/MT-07 family are pretty reliable so warranty claims won't be an issue!
