Service costs for SF1098 in Australia?

Hi guys,
Does anyone know the service costs for a SF1098 in Australia? I'm from melbourne.

12000 Kms ?
24000 Kms?

Also ,if I haven't touched 24k mark yet, do I still need to chAnge the timing belts in 2 years? Mine is a 2010 and only ridden 4000 kms.

Thanks

I can't help ya with the service costs, but the belt changes are listed as 24k OR 2 years (not a direct quote)......meaning whichever comes first.

Up to you if you choose to do it or not, but risking major engine damage to save the cost of the service isn't something I'd be comfortable with.

Current rides:
'12 848SF
Husky 610 'tard
'04 R1
'01 ZX7R (too fat to fly)
'83 KZ1000ELR
'74 RD400 Daytona

I had my SF1098 in for 12000 k valve adjustment and my service guy who has a shiteload of experience suggested i was throwing good money down the drain, he suggested unless i was doing a lot of track work or constantly thrashing the tits of it the 12000 k valve check was a woftam.As for belt change he said definately change at 24000k but changing them with low k's even though the 2 years comes up was a wank. I have just clicked over 15000k's on my sf and so far she hasn't put a foot wrong.

Just had 12k done on mine. Checked shims, new fluids, belts and fiddled with the suspension a bit. Cost was around $1100. Although I've only had the bike just over 12 months from new, the build was May 2010 so new belts were suggested and went with it as still under warranty.

My 12000 Kms service was about $1200, but i supplied the oil and filter.
Valves were checked with no adjustment required. Dealer said they've never had to adjust these things at 12000 Kms, but it is done as a precaution and it's under warranty.
Belts were adjusted.
Air filter changed.
Plugs changed. (although the manual says it's not required, and my plugs were fine when they came out with the engine running well)
Brake & clutch fluid changed.
Rear brake pads replaced with non genuine equivalent as they weren't going to last until the next service.
Coolant changed due to the fact that the lower radiator was removed to facilitate valve access on the front cylinder.
Various adjustments were made including Drive-chain, and various critical fasteners checked for tightness.
2 new Pirelli Rosso II tyres.
Valve clearances were recorded for reference in the future.

As a matter of interest i am led to believe by people in authority even though it's not widely known, that DUCATI has quietly advised that it's possible to let the belts go up to, but not to excede 5 years as long as you absolutely don't go over 24000 Kms

I personally will be sticking to the 24000 Kms or 2 years rule
It's very cheap insurance IMO.

Cheers,
Brad

Hi,

I paid about $1,100 for the 24k service and got the belts changed. It was put to me as recommended but optional, adds less than 200 bucks to the service now but if needed between services then much more expensive due to labour.

Thanks guys. Looks like I will be waiting for 24k to get the belts changed. I had the all the oils changed at 4000kms. The service seems to be a bit expensive than diavel. I have not got quotes yet but will see the damage to my pocket later.

Is is really necessary to valve clearance everyone 1 year?

Cheers

IMO go by what the manual says.
At least until warranty runs out. By then you will have worked out what's best for you.

Thanks mate. Did any of you had A squeaky clutch problem. It's happening when I release the clutch on first gear. And should I take the baffles out?

Yes, It is caused by a build up of dust in the between the dry plates. It can often be fixed by removing the cover and blasting with compressed air. If the problem persists then the clutch could be worn out as was my experience. $600 in parts plus labour to replace.
