Servicing in North Yorkshire UK

My F4 750 will be on the road in less than a month then I need to finish running it in and take it for its first service.

Who should I use to do this work and who should I avoid?

I live in York, North Yorkshire, England.

Cheers for your advice Guys!

What we need is someone in the UK who can travel with a van full of tools and do servicing at our homes. Think of it, no dealership overheads, plus all the tea they can drink. I wonder why nobody does this? There must be a market for it for MVs and Ducatis that don't have dealerships in every town..

It is quite expensive, they do stuff like checking the torque on the cylinder head bolts so they have to remove the rocker cover etc. as well as the normal oil + filters.

Thorne will give you an estimate if you ring them.

Their number is 01405 812626 and ask for Mick in the service department. He's also very good with Ducatis BTW.
