600 mile service

Would you guys recommend for the 600 mile service going to the dealership or going to a motorcycle shop for the service?

I've heard and read views on either way, but I was wondering is there a great significant or not.


Thanks,
Matt

I just did mine myself. There isn't anything hard about it, and it saves a lot of money.

THE DEALER will say and charge you for a valve adjustment, in most cases they don't even get close to the valves. i say if it won't void the warranty, then do it yourself.

I did get the extra warranty.........so will it have any effect of voiding the warranty if I do or do not go through Yamaha?

do not give incorrect advice please. FYI, the first oil change is the most important service on that bike, and most other bikes out there. check with the details of your warranty to see if it is null and void if the shop doesn't perform the service. if you can service your own bike, buy the parts at the shop and change the oil and filter. should be good to go.

I did did my own 600 mile service oil change (with a Yammy filter and oil) then took it in for them to do the rest. Saved me $80 in labor an materials for the oil change. I was quoted about $180 from a couple of dealerships and by doing my own oil change, it came down to about $100.

just check the details of your warranty and proceed from there. If you can change your oil, get the filter from the shop and they will have receipts for the service parts you are buying.
