Aloha Fellow RT riders. Been wanting to upgrade my 1150R to an RT for a few years now. My dealer had a loaded Thunder Grey sitting on the floor for a few months that Ive been drooling over. My wife and I were out having a beer the other night and once again I bought up the topic and she said she will leave me if I dont go and buy it! So of course I went and bought it the very next day as the wife is a keeper. What a ride Im loving it so far!

Question is I bought a service plan for $1795 that covers 6 scheduled maintence services over 3years. Is that a good deal? What does the 600mi, the annuals and the 6k service cost on average?

Im pretty sure I spent more then that in service in 3 years on the R so the plan sounded good at the time but not so sure now.

What do you all think?

Knowing all the costs are generally more than people think they will be you will come out okay. The 600 mile is generally not too bad, about $240 or so. When you get the valves, oil change, brake fluid change etc it can get to 350 or more. I don't think you cut a fat hog but I would not worry about it. now you will have all the work done and not postponed because of costs. Go ride.

That doesn't sound out of line to me. I bought the extended warranty for my 2010RT a couple of months after I bought the bike. I paid a bit over $1200 for it but it didn't include any regular service mainetance.

I am taking mine in for the 6K service next week. I am guessing it will cost around $600. I'll have a better idea after next week on the actual cost of a service.

Regards,

$1,795 WITH parts and labor?

If so, I think you did well.

Relax and enjoy the confident feeling you have of not having to think about or worry about maintenance costs.

Congratulations.
