    Yeah I did but so far it's only commuted to work and back.. I haven't done a decent ride yet..

    My bmw was included only because they stuffed around with the shipment, he chucked it in for free.. But it was $175 as opposed to $350-550

    Did thy invite you on the customer ride? He was going to send details but none so far lol

    I think you really have to negotiate it when buying the bike. The average would be around €200 in Europe. On the german forum, I have read anything between €150.- (Belgium/Germany) and €300 (Austria) where the material alone cost already €100.-. add to that labor and VAT.

    I think any cost above €200 should concern extra work, not the 1st service itself. Unless something is already broken, its a simple oil change, hooking it to the computer to reset the service interval and professional check of things you should also check yourself.

    KTM counts 71 min. for the 1K service, 101 min. for the 15K and 132 min. for the 30K.

    Whew! I thought I was paying too much at $135 including oil and filter......I sort of figured it would have been nice if the dealer had done it for nothing...considering the purchase price... but I will be doing an oil change at 7500km and may do 15k myself...I kinda don't trust dealers....

    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_downloadsplugin/Servicezeiten_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.

    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...

    Blue Silver and anyone else who's interested. I have had bad vibration problems with the bike from almost riding it home. The dealer and I have gone through a process of elimination to try to overcome same, I fitted the expensive "progressive handlebar damping system", which cured nothing but the dealers overdraft.
    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.

    tell them to start with basics like tb synch, and the other minor adjustments, that shouldn't take a week for,or they are morons and have no clue

    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..
