Default First service quotes!

Anyone get em yet? I'm over 600 miles and planning on getting it done this weekend but I have a few simple questions... How much is it? How long does it take? And, what are they doing in all? I know they do some kind of valve adjustment but that's about all I know.. Any answers?? Thanks!

All you need is oil and a filter.. About $35 for me No reason to take it in unless you have an issue.. That is why you have a warranty, that is my though at least..

I don't think they do a valve adjustment at the first service, that requires ripping the engine apart..

In short they have a LONG checklist of thing to look ever.. Make sure everything is tight and adjusted correctly.. All items you could easily do yourself.. Its all listed in the manual..

For sure.. Take a look into the owners manual, it lists everything they do..

If you want to go above and beyond you can probably go on Google to find a list of first service items.. Nothing I own goes into the dealer or shop unless its for warranty work or a repair I dont want to tackle myself..

If you have any questions we can walk you though it.. We have a good member base on here.. Lots of guys knowing lots about motorcycles.. Its weird you go on the 250R board and its nothing but newbies, but on here you got the super sport guys that are down grading or looking for more comfortable commuter

Just to actually answer the OP's question, in case he'd still like to have a professional take a look at his bike, my dealership quoted me $75-80 for first service.

Thats really not a bad price, I expected it to be in the $100's because they make such a big deal out of the first service..

Local customer was quoted $120-$130 for first service. He did what others have posted, sat down with his manual and said he has like $40 into it. Plus he learned as he did it himself and that makes it even better...

They wanted about $200 and $100 if I changed the oil myself.

Didn't take it in, just looked over it myself and the oil/filter were under $30
