mid 300 in Australia for a oil change but have been good on 2 warranty problems
4.5 hours is a lot but I could see this as reasonable if they had a few bikes to service that day.£140 + £25 for 'oil and filter'
I was not impressed. I'm not sure why the £140 didn't cover the parts needed for the service. Because £140 for what should be 45-60 minutes of inspection and basic oil change is taking the mickey, even for Ducati.
Saying this, they did take 4.5 hours!!! to complete the service, so I suspect I paid for their lunch while I was waiting for my bike back...
Yeah, you are right. It's a bit more involved than just the oil change but that's the only bit that requires additional parts.4.5 hours is a lot but I could see this as reasonable if they had a few bikes to service that day.
First service isn't just an oil change! They are required to torque pretty much every bolt to their specific torque rating on the bike. Everything gets loose after those first thousand kilometers.
I totally get what you're saying. Just playing devil's advocate! Hopefully your experiences improve.Yeah, you are right. It's a bit more involved than just the oil change but that's the only bit that requires additional parts.
Being busy is acceptable but I booked in for a specific time slot, arrived on time and was told before hand that it would be 90 minutes at the most. Over 4 hours would have been ok if I'd known. I'd have made plans to keep busy but instead it was a lot of hanging around being told 'not much longer'
Hi, whereabouts did you get that service done?Mine was something like £135 all in?
£186!You've been well tucked up Dave! How much of that was labour? The oil cost should be similar dealer to dealer.
