    Curious as to the cost of your 6k service and what was done?
    Thanks,

    Ok - I guess I should be more specific for the less entitled.
    So I'm asking to get a good baseline on cost as well as
    if valves needed to be adjusted or not.
    Not that we've ever seen different cost for the same service posted on here before :huh

    Sorry I thought it was worth at least a giggle. :D

    My buddy said his was quoted at $200, "just" an oil change.

    600 mile running check should have been round 280

    6 k is just an engine oil change, 70 in parts and 45 in labor unless its in downtown manhattan

    Oil change, DIY but remember it's dif oil now and around a 1/2 quart more... like that matters!

    Still waiting to see results on these valves. The adjustment process is a bit more in depth, but if they move as little as the preceding model I'm not worried.

    From what I can tell it looks like a Camhead adjustment. Not sure how to rotate the motor though.

    Anyone have a copy of the factory manual I can borrow briefly? :evil

    I'm up early to take my bike in for its 600 miles service, it would be nice to see a sheet on what the 600 and 6k service entails, the dealers can be notoriously vague when you ask them what all the service involves.

    600 service is oil change, final drive oil change, bolt check, general bike check, computer & updates check. Mine was $195. FWIW, as an extra task you should ask them to check the level of mineral oil in the clutch reservoir, it might be overfilled.

    Re: rotating the engine for valve check, presumably for DIY 12k mile service: just put it in 6th gear and turn the rear wheel. Once the clutch is fully engaged, the slipper shouldn't make a difference. Remove the spark plugs to make it even easier.

    Thanks nwpa, I missed that first time around.

    My dealer gets $300 for the 600 mile service, seems rather high for essentially an oil and rear drive lube change.
    They threw the service in when I bought the bike though.

    I'm sitting at the dealer waiting for my 600 mile service to complete as I type this. I just saw my bike go out for the after service test ride so it should be ready soon. Estimate (SF Bay Area prices) was about $250. That is about what I expected.

    No RepROM available yet. Hopefully before the 6K service.

    Edit: Actual cost was $236

    Any suggestions of one stop shop for oil and filters on line for the GSW. I'm due the 6k in a few miles.

    $316 for the 600 service in Tigard, OR.

    I was quoted less (~!$250) elsewhere but "elsewhere"couldn't get me in so I was kinda stuck paying the higher price.
