12k Service Cost
« on: October 14, 2018, 12:48:34 PM »
Just had my bike serviced at Cotswold Cheltenham. Cost £274 including air filter and brake fluid change, but no loan bike.

How does that compare?  :305:

I was quoted up to £325 depending on what needed replacing. So yours is about correct. Mine is now due but as I will be putting her away for the winter, I will wait until spring...

Hence why I do all my own servicing, plus I don't trust anyone..😁

The trouble is I am not sure that I trust me and the service is only once a year  :305:

I just paid £207 yesterday for a 6000 mile service. It included an air filter and oil change but not brake fluid. so similar I guess. Did your include spark plugs? Mine was at Lovett's in Bristol I didn't ask for a bike as it was done while I waited and the weather was foul. Normally I take a demo bike for a ride.

Fair enough, if you're not handy with spanners etc....better off taking it to the dealer. Being an aircraft engineer makes me suffer OCD and I also like to fiddle.  :001:

Seems a bit much to pay for a courtesy bike.

  :0461:  Mine is due the 24,000 service but it will be going away shortly.  -1°C last night but they didn't salt the roads.  One last ride before winter I think.
