    V4 1100 factory service costs

    Just been quoted 199 for a first service (600 miles) on my bike, is the dealer taking the p**s?

    When you consider that Motul 300v 5w 40 and a filter (cos it takes just over 4l) will come to around 100 I think it's a fair price to be honest.

    A can of that oil on eBay is 50 and a filter is 10 tops so I would say yes they do take the piss,if I buy a new bike I say I want a free 1st service and never been refused yet

    Except you need 4.3L and even at ebay prices that is around #70 without a filter.

    I here what you're saying, but 200 to service a bike that has cost you 15k in my view is a drop in the ocean.

    Having said that I do all my own servicing apart from valve clearances because I enjoy doing it.

    I picked up 4l of 300v on Saturday from my local dealer. Retail price was 64.99
    Thanks from Blade

    Cheers gents, my supplying dealer are way less that the price I've been quoted, approx 140. That's the thing with servicing, you have to get it done to maintain the warranty. The other thing I have been told is that if the service schedule states every 12 months or however many miles, if you don't reach the mileage, you need to get it serviced at the 12 month mark again to maintain the warranty.
    I don't mind paying it, as you say, it's a 15k bike.

    The cost of the first service is on face value looks expensive, but break it down your in fact paying for a service and another years warranty!! costs around 200.00 then looks better value

    Totally disagree . When you by the bike it comes with a warranty . All these dealers over charging on services is a piss take which it sounds like you are condoning . We need to stick together and stop bending over for greedy dealers

    If it wasn't for dealers we wouldn't have the bikes support them or loose them simple.

    Katoom 1290 sdr,,,,,,,,,,,,,,phoned the only dealers in Nesbitland aboot gettin the brake recall done,,,,,,,,,,,,,,how much fir an oil and filter change.

    60 notes fir the oil, 30 fir the filter and 1 hours labour takes it tae 160.

    It's in the book if that makes a difference.

    IIRC I paid circa 140.00 for my first service 2016 TV4 Factory and about 160.00 or the 2nd year service.

    It's ok for you to say support the dealers when you only paid 140 for your 1st service . But the 220 I was quoted is extortionate . I figure buying a new bike every two years is supporting the dealers.break down the cost oil 60 , filter maybe 20 1 hours labour must then be 140 . Support dealers charging that . You must be fuckin stupid .

    Not stupid or fuckin stupid either.

    Maybe I should have said "220 that's way too high robbing tw4ts, mine only cost 140, shop around and you will get it cheaper" and pandered to you instead of being a little more rational about the subject.

    just get it done and stop your whinging...if you get your years warranty for 200 notes or so then its a bargin..i bet you dont blink an eyelid when spend 400 notes on a set of rearsets because you dont like the colour the oe ones came in or spend 200 notes on a small handfull of titanium bolts..
    Thanks from hs2300

    Where do you get this 200 for the warranty shit from . It comes with any new bike. Not gonna argue the point anymore with you two sounds like you might work for Aprilia or just enjoy having your pants pulled down by them . Enjoy
