My dealer charges $240. which seems hefty for a look over and oil change. BUT, I always have the dealer do the 1st service on anything because of warranty claim potential. That pretty much proves that you broke the bike in correctly. Plus, I will usually have them install any chrome goodies I happen to want which in this case will be a set of dresser bars. But now that I have my new machine in the garage...there is rain in the forecast for the next 6 days
