There's always oneBrakes are for braking, engines are for going...
I will have to check, but I'm certain my services never cost that much (at the other dealer). From memory, my regular services are around $280 and my 24,000 was something around a grand. I could be wrong, and probably am, but I'll let you know!For some Aussie costs for what it is worth.
12,000km service - a few hours and a cost of AUD$400 (I had tyres fitted at the same time and the labour was rolled in together.
24,000km service - they want the bike the whole day and in fact had it overnight. Cost an eye watering AUD$1,630 and the only extra was rear brake pads. This was at the main Melbourne dealer owned by the national importer. They have steep labour costs.
After the gut busting bill, I have to say they did a good job and the bike runs much better.
I've only read about a handful of bikes that have had this problem, out of, what, 20,000 of them that have been sold? Is it still an issue?Thanks, guys and youch! That is what I figured, though. My only other worry is the false neutral issue I've heard about. Definitely don't want to be running hard in the twisties and get a neutral instead of an engine brake.
