1st 600 Mile Service

I called the cloeset BMW dealer (not where I purchased my new '06) to set an appointment for the first service after break in as well as get an idea of the cost.

They were very nice but gave me a first service cost of $320.00 plus parts... Is this the going price?? What parts it is still under warranty......

dealer where I picked up bike charged $270 +tax for 600 mi service
MAX BMW charged same for 6K and 320 for 12K.

found the bill for 600 mi and it was 170 not the above 270

All it really amounts to is an Oil change, filter, rear end change. Mind total bill was $162.19 parts included. I thought that was high.

I paid about $110. It basically consists of an engine oil change and rear gearbox fluid change. It takes about an hour labor plus fluid and a filter. For 320 bucks they better throw in a couple of tires. There is no way it can be that high.

I payed a little over $300, but I bought some extra stuff and had them install it at the same time. Had I just gone with the regular service, it would have been much cheaper.

You ain't seen nothing yet! Unless you can do a lot of the service yourself, better take a second mortgage!!!

Diy

You can do the service yourself. Keep your receipts. There have been a lot of post about this.

They do oil/filter - then they check the valves (not needed), then they check all the cruise switches (not needed), and spend about 2 more hours checking stuff. It's all under warranty, so if it breaks, they'll fix it. The only reason to do it is to establish a relationship with the shop. It shouldn't cost more than $200, for what you could do in your garage for $40. Welcome to the world of BMW!

BTW, there are some wonderful folks here in FL that I know, and dozens more around the country who host 'tech' sessions, where they'll help you, show you, and encourage to do whatever on your bike.
Check it out!!

Checks from BMW Maintenance CDROM

This is the checklist the dealers use for all checks on '04-'06's.
I did most of the work myself for the first inspection and it cost $97 Canadian for the dealer to do the rest.
The 10,000 Km (6000 mile) check cost me $86.

Annual maintenance

I also just had the annual checks done. I only had the dealer flush all the wheel brake circuits (annual) and also had all the brake control circuits flushed ( every 2 years) and the final Motorrad bleed test done.
On of the techs recommended doing the control circuits annually after he found some dark fluid in circuits that were only done annually. I did all the other annual checks and fluid changes. Total dealer cost $287 Can.
