Who is doing it?

Did you try to get a south side sponsor to look at it?

Good luck.

Parts alone can be pricey, especially with the aboved mentioned. If you are going based off mileage-based services your owner's manual will have the check chart for what is required on mileage/time. If parts are close to 100bux; labor for and hour/half isn't bad for plugs/adj chain/oil change/21 point inspection.

Well plugs will cost you about 25 for NGK's... Oil will run you about 30-50 bucks... air filter will either cost you 20-30 or with a BMC or K&N will cost you about 50-90.. soo I would say about 100-130 just in materials.. and sometimes changing spark plugs is a pain in the .. I would say 200 isnt that far off.. I would try to do it yourself you can learn alot about your bike!!

keep in mind that most bike shops dont do a 21 point inspection, i know a few sponsor shops that do it for safety and to make a future buck

^^^good points.

If you have questions, thread in the questions and answers. Plus there are always people around to help and teach from their knowledge. Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited does a basic motorcycle maintenance class every month. Highly recommended even though its a drive for you. I have learned much from them and continue to everytime I stop by, even if to just say hi.
