Our service costs
« on: 16 July, 2011, 08:29:04 AM »
If we all post our service costs here, then over time time we will build a picture of how costs and standards vary across the country.
Please state if you have a CBF mk 1 (2 exhausts) or a CBF mk 2 (single exhaust) or other bike ie Triumph Tiger 1050cc. Also any other work you have done.

I'll state the ball rolling with my last service
16000 mile service 7/7/2011 CBF mk1
2 new shims fitted and all the usual bits.
Additional work new front brake pads and a MOT test.
Total cost including a 10% CBF forum owners club discount = £538.61 (ouch, ouch :019:)
Dealer Reading Honda part of the Blade group where I have always had good service.

Josiah (still) :125:( needs koffy and has a very light wallet now)
I'd rather ride it than clean it!

Hi Josiah, I do my own servicing so can't contribute but for the work you've had done I think the charge was reasonable, never the less a lot of money. -Snibor

Perhaps separated totals for a) Parts & b) Labour as charged would be useful?

Hi Josiah.
Might I suggest you simplify this a little and focus on the dealer's hourly rate.
Honda parts should cost the same across the country and similarly, labour time is probably taken from a manufacturer's manual. If you find the hourly rate is fairly consistent, then you can look more closely at the work duration for set-piece activities.

CBF mk 1
600 mile service free (but I think the Honda policy has changed since 2008)
4000 mile service 9/4/09
total cost = £146.06
8000 mile service 20/10/09
total cost = £189.14 (including discount)
I can't find the reciept for the 12000 mile service when I do I'll post it.
edit, I've just found my reciept for the 12000 mile service.
12000 mile service: Labour £143.83, Parts £63.74 Total after VAT £243.90 (vat @ 17.5%) 4/9/2010.
                         

All of the above had no extra work done.

footnote
I'm only simple and my storiers simply told, I have squandered my cash on
Whoops sorry what I meant to say was
Lets keep this simple or my brain will blow a fuse again and I kneed more koffy

I had 32k service done last year including valve clearances mk1 2006

Total cost March 2010

£230.00 including MOT

L C Green Beccles Yamaha Dealer family run garage and been using it for many years.

This year march 2011

Oil and filter, and coolant change £85 would have been the cost but had oil in coolant bottle so they stripped most of the coolant system off and cleaned it at my request total cost £150

8000 Mile service done April this year, plus Brake and Clutch fluid change at my request. £162 inc - Kent Motor Cycles, on A2 near Barham.

Previous 4000 mile service (same place), including Oil/Filter change, and Brake paste/Brake cleaner = £126 Inc.

That's ridiculous for 8k service plus MOT! Are Hunts being run by S*mali pirates? I paid £145 inc VAT for 8k at Norton Honda. :156:
