Damm!  :023:

Should have read this before today!

I have just had my 600 mile service done by P&H and paid for parts only - £65.  However, I see KingerSX paid £15 less by the same dealer........ :019:

You wait till I go back in there!!!!!

Perhaps they charge more for the superior CLG?!!!!!  :008: :411:

If people pay the same price for a slower bike, why wouldn't they pay more for the same service ?

7500 service carried out today at DKs. Including changing the front sprocket they charged £185. Didn't think that was bad at all as this service includes plugs, air filter as well as oil etc. They had a problem with some air box screws/bolts which had corroded and seized solid.  :002:

£209 for 7500 mile service but included in the price was a new front Sprocket, removed and replaced with 16 tooth one, new side lights and uprated headlights. heated grips wiring altered so as they turn on/off with ignition. Also fitted a Baglux tank cover (I provided).
He told me they would not be changing the spark plugs at this service as in there experience it was a waste of my money. He says modern plugs last 20k miles.
So we will see, all in all happy enough with that, also gave me the Versy 1000 to play with again.
He advised me that there will be a slight increase in transmission noise as the OME sprocket is rubber backed and the Renthol one is not.
I must admit initially I was aware of a bit more background whine?? but do not hear it now.
Early days with the new gearing but indications are the bike still has loads of grunt and you can still get the front wheel up in the air. Have not done a speedo check against the GPS.  I have checked the reduction in engine revs at 90MPH, I reckon about 480 less 6100 RPM and the good thing about that is, my nuts are not going numb from the vibs that you get at 6550/6750 revs.

PS: just waiting on the arrival of Jon & Lionel from Ireland and looking forward to meeting you all at the meeting this weekend.

600 mile service- Alfs Motorcycles, Worthing, Sussex, UK- bought from them and they gave free labour on 1st so only £41.00, said the next would either be £90 if just brake check etc or £150 for filter oil etc as well

The bike had it's 24,000 kilometre (15k miles) service today.$430 Australian or 275 GBP. Including new plugs which were $96 for the set by labour cost. No air filter cost as I fitted a K&N.

Did you replace your plugs at 12,000km? Those iridian plugs should be good for far more than 12,000km!

No the plugs changed today were the originals. The kwaka workshop manager said he always recommends the iridium plugs be replaced no sooner than 24 km and has some customers go as far as 40k km. I think going 40k km on a set of plugs is pushing your luck a bit.

I am 10,000km now so have 12,000km service coming up soon but do not think i will do what my manual says and change plugs. My Versys has same plugs and done them myself at 12,000km and had a mechanic do a valve check at 24,000 and changed plugs and both times there was nothing wrong with the plugs and that was the view of the mechanic. Have also mentioned before somewhere that even Kawasaki NZ advised me that the plugs change intervals for the iridium plugs may be over the top at 12,000km frequency.
