just brought the 1090 in for the 1st service. i was just wondering what the going price for the service is. i was quoted right at 1,000.00 U S . THAT SOUNDS LIKE ALOT TO ME, is that a rip off or it is what it is? and thats without the oil and filter. what do u guys think? :smoking: :bawling: :bawling::ahhh: :ahhh:

Hhhm

Since this is usually a major service with valve check and hub service too, I thought it would not be too bad. I know that's what the guys charged me over here for my first and last service at 1000km.

WTF! get out of there quick smart! is a near new bike! & you are not racing it! oil+filter change & the rest are checks for fluid levels & minor adjustments chains etc. it should cost no more than $350 thats with full synthic oil and oem filter.

So what's the 7,500 mi rip about ?
Anyway, as far as I remember, and I stand corrected, the first service has quite a substantial list of things that need checking. Not something I would go past on, after that might be a different story.

Agree with Donsy, I beleive the first service includes valve checks, fluids, timimgs etc. Mine cost £500 - £600 (1078RR). When I questioned the price, the dealer showed me MV's own list of requirements provided to them of all the tolerance checks they need to make, I was amazed. That's when I downloaded the service manual!

If it is the 7500 "first major service" sounds about what it costs...it is very involved, and all kinds of parts and fluids are replaced, but the most is labor (about 500-800 worth in labor)

a mates bike f4 750 2001 did his major services @50,000km also been on the track half of its life & have not miss a beat. did the rear oem bearing still good, did the fork oil, fuel filter, oil & filter. now got 60,000kms & he changes oil & filter every 10,000kms. still rides like a dream, on the boil. to keep up with the 1000s.

I paid exactly $838.53 for my 7500 mile service done back in March last year by Munroe on my '05. They quoted a couple hundreds above this to cover for valve adjustment which wasn't needed in the end. So you're in the ballpark for the first major service (at San Francisco labor rates). Brutes are expensive girlfriends....but they're worth it ;)

Love to know how you get to compare a 750 with a 1090 Tony, are you recommending this guy should skip his major - still under warranty service- and wait till he has 50k on the bike?
Just wondering what you are recommending since you said he should get his bike away from the shop in the first place. By my last count -I stand corrected- a 4l full syth oil could be at least $60, filter OEM $30 - labour at least two hours, $$$. So no valve clearence check or brake and clutch fluid replacement yet, neither steering bearings or hub service check?
I do agree there is some things that can be done at home by some people, but were do we draw the line when we recommend something.

7,500 service

thanks to everyone for all your comments. i guess like PIERRE said bruts are expensive girl friends. HA HA THE bike is really nice, i do ride alot, payments, gas, ins, up keep, service, high dollar for a poor boy. when i bought the bike the sales asshole said it would cost about $500.00 U S DOLLARS. THATS A SALESMAN. :smoking: :wtf::wtf::wtf:

by all means do a service is important! but that first service seems to expansive. my 2c
it shouldnt need valve adjustments at that low mileage. we have better oils & stronger metal meterial to combat wear & the 1090 is better engineered bike. if the 750 with a high reving stress motor can handle with long service intervals and abuse. & runs like a charm. i must be missing something

For what it's worth, I only paid $400 US for The 7.5k mile service for my 750 last year by a local dealer. No valve adjustment needed and i change my own oil, so the cost was almost all labor. I am about to get the 14k mile service done this weekend I expect to pay a little bit more....

Yes. @ Beverly. A bit of correction after I took a look at the service invoice. It was $480 total. Included a new fuel filter, a set of spark plugs. $100 for parts, the rest was labor. Let's see how they are for this service!

BTW--anyone know where I can get a set of shims without buying the whole set? If service gets too expensive, I guess I'll do them myself during the hibernation months. (4 months here in New England)

I just paid 1100 for my 7500 mile service at munroe in SF. They charge me 850 for labor and rest parts. I guess luck of the draw they said she needed valve adjustments. She is super expensive to keep.

My 14k mi service didn't need valve adjustments. Fuel injection adjustments only. It came out to about $500. (no oil, filter, plugs, btw. Did them myself).

The bike runs much more crisply. Love it!!

Service is not cheap on these bikes. Just a fact. That quote is not a rip off. I was quoted about $1000 for the 7500 at Proitalia and that is about what many others have been quoted and charged. Add a couple hundred more if valve adjustment is required. The bulk of that quote is labor of course. Gotta pay to play as they say.
You can save a big chunk if you do it yourself though (provided you have the tools and basic know-how).
