I got a quote from peter stevens in the CBD, $565.. I told them not even BMW would rip me off that much..

again bolton motorcycles to the rescue with $350..

So is that about average?

I didn't have any bargaining power as there was a list of other people who wanted the bike if I didn't.

Peter Stevens also said there is a 7500km service as well.. which is bullshit.. but they said it was $630 and major service at 15000 is $1200..
Difficult to comment on service prices without knowing what the going rate per hour is for labour wherever you are.

But KTM give some useful indicators for the time taken to do servicing here http://www.ktm.com/uploads/tx_downlo...en_2013_EN.pdf

First service is less than 1.25 hours - plus oil/filter. So in the UK you should be looking well under £150 max.

Pre air filter

just for those inmates in Oz KTM supplied me with a pre air filter free of charge....for those who haven't seen it, it consists of outer plastic base with a lightly oiled foam mid section that fits in above the existing air cleaner.....made in Australia by FWF and even comes with a stick on transfer you can stick on your neighbors car one night ...if you aint got it chase your dealer...

Nice one, thanks for that.. Although it will be hard to hold the dealer accountable if they take 2-3hours hehe

I reported probs with vibration from taking it home, hoping running in would solve same. Reported same at first service in which they checked all the mounting bolts for engine. Recomended the handelbar damping system which I bought like a mug.
Took it back to get kit I ordered and asked them to check the front wheel ballance, as suggested by you guys, front wheel way out, double the weights added, their mechanic reconed it was also through the pegs and probably engine.
Still having problems with vibration; talked to the Dealer today who in turn has contacted KTM, and this is not the first report of same. They want to have my bike at the Dealers for a week to check things out, I told them I't should go back to KTM to check things out.
How do you contact KTM UK, the mother ship.

I had the same on my @R! Extremly bad vibrations around 50 till 80 km/h! I first thought it was the rim! But und than read in our german forum, that replacing the front tire with a new one should solve the problem (conti trail attack 2)! They wrote that there are a few @ out there with a production error! And I could change the tire under warrenty/garanty! So i did! My dealer arranged everything and now it's perfect! No vibrations untill 240 km/h! Great!

Have you got the bash plate? I had mine put on at the first service and noticed more vibes afterwards. I did however put one tooth less front sprocket on at the same time so I had just put it down to this as the more likely culprit but interested to see if you do have the bash plate.

no vibrations of the bad sort here thankfully.. I reckon its tyres or wheels..

Perhaps instead of the dealer putting shitloads of weights on the wheel, they should retrue the spokes and eliminate the need for balancing.. I think that if you got someone who knows what there doing to respoke and retrue the rims, your vibes will go away..
