Since I'm more mechanically reclined than inclined, I plan on having my 600 mile service done at the dealer. What should I expect to/did you pay?
Urrmmm....how did the other store know who you were? Did they put up a 'Wanted (dead or alive) poster'?ajwood said:A year ago I had my AN650 first service done at Sierra Cycles (Sierra Vista, AZ).
A day after getting it back home, I discovered an oil puddle on the garage floor.
I arranged by phone with Sierra Cycles for a fefund of the $100+ labor because I felt a local
dealer should look at it before I get back on the highway (more costs).
Sierra Cycles refunded the labor portion by mail then I had the drain plug tightened and the bike filled
again here locally at another Suzuki dealer.
3 weeks later, while strolling through Sierra Cycles' Kawasaki store here in Tucson
(Performance Cycle Center), I was asked to leave and to never walk into either of their stores again.

So the quote provided may not be too far off. Hopefully, I'll get to pickup my 400 today. We'll see how the charges actually add up.Herfnerd said:Just had my 600 mile done - Service Mgr said I didn't need valve adjustment, at least this time. Total for me was $80...........
Thanks for the offer. I might just take you up on that. I've never worked on any bike before and have done limited work on cars/trucks. I can work on electronics so I'm not a complete klutz. Working on your own bike is just a part of getting into the whole riding experience.ajwood said:When you're ready, I'll give you pointers over the phone if you want.
You Do Not have to take all those body parts apart like the book says, and
Im not trying to be sloppy.
