Service prices.

Any help with service prices.

My Blade needs a 8K service.

2 prices at £180-£190
change oil/filter
clean check plugs
check carbs
check coolant
General check

1 Price £180.00
As above but parts extra as plugs need changing and airfilter estimate £70.00
Total £250.00

1 price £127
as first 2 quotes told me plugs dont need changing just cleaned.

The 4K service one company told me oil/filter does not need changing other companys charge £100+ stating oil and filters need changing.

Who is right any bike fitters out there ?

If that's all that needs doing and you're paying someone else to do it, you deserve to get screwed...do it yerself, fer chrissakes.

I would but cant be arsed !!No i want to keep the service book stamped ill get more for it im trying to sell it.

service prices are ridiculous, doing my R6 8k service myself at weekend (on account of it being easy and me being skint), would be surprised if your owners manual doesn't tell you what needs doing but as a guideline should have oil and filter changed, carbs balanced, plugs changed every 8k acording to yamaha, I always used to do yearly. if the air filter is a paper type, don't replace it get a K&N as these can be cleaned rather than replaced and won't be much more than a honda OE part.

4k Basic £50 + parts8K inter £112.50 + partsMajor £162.50 + parts and labour if valves req reshim.8K on blade depends on age and history would probably change the plugs but normaly give the customer the option. Yes we always change the filter with oil. If U want I can send u a copy of our servicing menu.

Cheers D&C,Headonist if you could send it to me please cheers mate.Ive looked after the bike screwed it the last 3k though so i wil have the plugs changed , i can do it myself but wont i get more for it with a stamped service history.

there are ways of having your book stamped...find a friendly dealer, buy parts from them and get them to stamp the book!

Cheers mate ill try them dont hold much hope though.

Cheers mate,Thought of that but dont hold much hope.
