Had my 1st Service done today.
They had my pants down and charged me £114 for basically an Oil and Filter change. 😕
After telling me the price he said he had made a mistake.
I was thinking he was going to tell me a lower price.....
But no he had charged me for a 125 service which at £114 was cheaper than a 250cc + service.....

Those prices sound more realistic!

Only reason mine goes to the dealer is it's under warranty, once that out this next will be the last service
it will be diy.

Within the EU you can service your own bikes (and cars) so long as you use the recommended (manufacturers) parts and keep the receipts. You don't have to take it to a dealer for servicing to maintain warranty as long as you follow this simple rule. I've done this on all of my bikes and the few warranty claims I have had have never been an issue. Save your self an absolute fortune and learn a lot at the same time.
