What's funny about service cost is that I can take my Honda Ridgeline in for service and for the $29.95 oil and filter change they check about 30-50 items for free. Yes they are looking for needs repairs, but 99.9 percent of the time there is nothing needed. So why don't motorcycle dealers do bikes the same way, I guess their $250.00 charge is pretty much $30.00 for the oil and filter and $220.00 for looking at the the bike. Good money if you can get it. In other words you are charge $220.00 for nothing done to the bike in most cases. Now you know why I dislike dealership service. My biggest gripe is valve adjustment, why should we have to pay for it if it falls in the factory warranty period and it's the recommended time to have them adjusted. This is BS, didn't I get a factory warranty, I know it's an adjustment, but the things ought to be built not needing adjustment or adjusted under warranty. I'm getting charged for the manufactures not being able to manufacture engines that need adjustment and I'm to pay, get serious.
