Some bikes are more labor intensive than others.
I'm sure they can tell you how many hours labor your bike is just by a phone call.

how many miles on your bike? You shouldnt need one unless your valvles are getting a bit noisy or you're at the recommended mileage.

now don't quote me but a valve adjustment should run you between 4 and 600 bucks. I called yesterday and they are about 2 weeks before they can look at your bike. call for sure good guys there
