Re: 12000 mile service!
Thanks for reminding me why I do all wrenching myself now...
When I got my bike, I had the dealer do oil changes. They were $35.99, and included a quick wash...
My first 12K service rolls around, and I think to myself, "Man, this is a big one.... Could be $300 - $400!" My 12K came to just over $1,150.00 (included a new front tire).
Adding up the previous expenses for oil, it was more than 10 cents a MILE just for maintenance!!?
I decided then and there that I would learn how to take care of the big girl myself, and found this forum! My membership fee has paid me back 100 fold!
