    Our service costs

    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)

    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.

    Josiah (still) :125:(but now my brain hurts and I kneed more koffy)
    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

    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:
