Motorcycles Unlimited... Patrick or Thomas will take good care of you. No idea on cost, but I'm sure they'll give you a fair price, they always do.

Why not do it yourself? Then go spend the money you saved at the place you would've done the 6k service.

I don't know. I don't really have the tools or the experience. 6k service sounds like something that suppose to get done by professional, like I said I don't have much experience this is why I'm asking

Everybody starts somewhere at some time. 6k service is typically an oil change, chain tension check/adjust, and a few other checks here and there. Perfect place to start wrenching. I bet the money you would have spent on the service will buy you basic tools, a keg of beer, and then some.

just check your chain tension/sprocket teeth, lube chain, change the oil, check the spark plug....takes a couple of sockets that i'm sure you or a friend has laying around and you'll save yourself a lot of money.

Doesn't the 6k service for the ninja 250 include valve clearance checks?

What does the maintenance schedule show in your owners manual?

Get a professional. I wouldn't recommend "trying" to service a machine which at any time could fail and cause you death.

Probably 300-500.

There is no such thing. If you want it well done learn how and do it your self.
If you want I can PM you with a huge list of all PROFESSIONAL services and places I paid to get done on my bike and the end result was way less then professional.
