If you have a owners manual it will tell you everything that should be done at the 600 mile service. No they don't check/adjust the valve clearance. I do all my own services. :twisted:

Essentially they change the oil, the oil filter and check the torque on a bunch of fastners. The only ones that were loose on my 1000 were exhaust parts. Some of them were plenty loose too.

Ride well,

Jeff

Labor rates for motorcycles shops are probably on a par with BMW/Mercedes dealers!

Just a glorified oil change, I don't think most shops check fasteners either. I check for loose parts on every bike I buy as soon as I get it home. The Strom was typical compared to the last few bikes I bought, a few loose bolts. The right side passenger peg and the belly pan/cowl.

thanx

Thanx Guys.

From the horses' mouth, the service guy said oil, and tighten all the bolts, especially the triple clamp and exaust bolts. I'm keeping my $100, and checking every thing my self. Thanx again. Doug.

Oops - just posted the same question in the Wee forum.

Up here in Canada, they are saying that a valve adjustment *IS* required and are trying to hit me for $300-350 (around $250 -275 US).

What gives?

bolts

I also found many loose bolts. It was surprising. None that were loose enough to fall out though. If you skipping the first service, check every bolt visible. I am going to check 'em once-a-year.
