I know I will probably get bashed for this though the 1st service is in my opinion the most important.
It is more than just changing your oil
Here are the major steps in a 1K
Tires and brakes
Adjust Steering head bearings
Adjust and lube all your cables
Clean your radiator
Check your fuel and cooling system
Lube your brake caliper pins
Plus much more
This is all in your owners manual if you decide to do it yourself but buy a service manual and save your receipts
If they are a reputable shop they will perform everything that is on the service checklist.
It should cost about $270-$300 depending on the fluids used.
Just my 2 cents
I appreciate your input.
I am somewhat apprehensive that all this would get done at our dealer....and the reason i'm saying this is,
during the delivery of my bike, all I seen was
1/2 gallon of gas was put in the tank, when it was delivered
the bike was not washed and only wiped down a little bit.
there were more than a few loose bolts and screws.
air pressure in the tires was way overflated.
I was charged an additional $1000 for freight and $899 for assembly.
(I feel this was an outrageous raping.)
I used to deliver new vehicles to dealerships for many years via the auto transport I drove. that cost on automobiles wasn't near what I was charged for this little bike.
I nearly didn't buy the bike because of this. but I wanted a Harley, didn't want another big bike, and I knew I would pay it off early.
I'm still feeling chafed from this.
Maybe this is normal, I really don't know.
But when the survey people called me I did mention this.
anyway, I honestly hope I'm wrong, and all the things you mentioned would indeed be done, but right now, I'm very doubtful !
There is a glass window from the sitting area out to the shop area in our dealership. I would want to see exactly what all gets done, before i'd pay that amount of money.
I do also plan to buy the shop manual for this bike.
I have done this for every bike I've ever owned.
Again I appreciate you advising us as to what should be done.
I just hope it would all actually get done.
If they actually do all this as you mentioned, then it is certainly worth the cost mentioned.
again thanks for your advice!
