Got a Duke 200 for my first bike a fortnight ago and took it for its first service with the dealer it was purchased from today.
Took them about 2 hours to complete the service, then they hit me with the bill for a total of £108.38.
They said they would have to post the invoice out because the mechanic was still logged into the bike on dealer.net and he had gone out on a test ride, so I donít have a break down of the costs.
Asked the guy that put it through the till was this just for changing the oil and he said yes and giving the bike a good check over to make sure everything on the bike is ok after its done a few miles.
Didnít question him any further as I have never had a bike serviced and didnít know how much it costs.
Is £108 a fair price for a first service?
After getting home and thinking about it, I cant help feeling that I may have been stroked, surely changing the oil couldnít cost over £100 and why should I pay for the bike to be checked for defects, surely this should be KTMís responsibility to check new bikes and covered in the cost when purchasing the bike.
As I mentioned im new to the bike world so all advice is very much appreciated. I do know not to eat the yellow snow, so if its kept bike related, that would be great.
