How much are you guys paying to the dealer for your 600 mile service? (Unless you did your own service obviously).

I asked this same question a little while back. Didn't really get a firm response. My dealer told me that it can be between $400-$600 US dollars. I haven't had a service yet since I'm still waiting on my 910R so hopefully people who have had it will chime in. :)

I am anxious for an answer as well, I am about to purchase a 1000s.

Unfortunately I will have to have a Ducati dealership do the service due to the fact there are no MV dealers in Canada. On a good note my mechanic their is awesome.

The first time I paid less than 200 dollars. Sometimes when you purchase the bike you can negotiate that it's for free, or lower costs.

I'm being charged almost $800 with tax.

:shocker: That's crazy! I just got mine done on Friday for under $400, and they stripped the bike to the bone to check everything.
You're getting ripped off IMO.

The first service (600 Miles) on my F4 was preformed at around 800 miles here in California by Pro Italia. The cost was $480.00 labor (6 Hours). I supplied my own oil so parts cost was just an oil filter kit @ $19.95 and an oil drain plug gasket @.95 ... $4.50 shop supply charge, $4.50 hazardous waste disposal charge and sales tax on the parts.. Total after tax was $511.62 ...

All valve clearances were within factory spec at 600 miles as well. The throttle bodies needed a little adjusting when they did the throttle body sync. The CO % was good as well from the factory.

Pro Italia's labor charges have since gone up to $85.00 ... When I had my 600 mile serivce done last year it was $80.00/hour.

Please make sure you guys are all getting your valve numbers recorded. Keep them in your manual. Trending this is important in my view.

I would also highly suggest oil analysis over the lifetime of your bike. I use:

www.blackstone-labs.com

Order the free sampling kit early as they usually take 2wks or so to arrive.

I would also ask them to note down any changes like CO% adjustment (from and to) and even which cyl's they found out of balance.


Just my highly recommended suggestions.
