First Service

Can anyone tell what a dealer would do at the first service?

On most bikes, first service is a glorified oil change. I read that they also check for recalls and ECU updates and apply if needed, but I just did my own oil + filter, checked for loose fasteners, chain adjust etc. You can download a manual which shows what specifically should be checked.

Thanks.

Thought as much. Will down load the manual and plan on doing my own oil changes between the dealer ones.

You just have to take it in to let them reset the service message unless it doesnt bother you

Is there no-way to reset that yourself? I'm going to do my 9000 mi service.

Are you going to replace the spark plugs? R&R the fuel tank to do the rear? Not on my list of things I'd care to tackle. There might be some updates, too - don't think a dealer would be very happy to provide those if you don't have them do the service. And then there could be warranty issues........of course we never have cause to use that warranty, do we?

Happy holidays, everyone...

Had the first service yesterday and was able to watch from a distance. Took the guy two and a half hours, then a quick road test and wash. He didn't stop at anytime and spent quite a deal of time on the rear end and chain adjustment.

All up it cost me about $80AUD more that the first service on my last bike. Given I don't have some of the tools and the access to the electronics it was value for money and protects the warranty. Here in Australia anyone can do the log book service as long as they are a trained mechanic and a member of the MTA but like me I doubt they have access to the elctronics and some of the specalist tools...I've seen some bikes butched by guys trying to make a tool fit!!

What I do plan to do is drain oil half way between services and replace....this appears to me to be value and good insurance.

Wow, that's a bit much. My dealer noted it would be about $650 give or take.

10 years ago I paid U$800-00 for a 20 000 kilometre service on my 900SS, so is it really a lot?

Over here every new Ducati comes with a free 90 000 kilometer or 3 year service plan - Every service part and all labour costs are included, the only thing we pay for is tyres. Do you guys not get this too?
