£1000 a service!!
« on: October 14, 2019, 09:32:31 PM »
Got a mate with a 1200 explorer.  He's been quoted £1000 near enough for a 20k service down in his area (Bath).  Told him about the new Triumph dealer here in Watford so he enquired there.  same price £940!

Totally nuts. (excluding coolant and other fluids if needed)

it would be interesting to know what the dealer is going to do for that fat fee. Is the Explorer that badly built that there is all sort of repair work expected? Doing the routine service on my 800 couldn't approach that kind of fee.

Please tell me I'm wrong, but is the customer expected to pay for their insurance?

£940.73!!! And that doesn't include any valve shim, coolant or brake fluid changes if I read that right, & why not? It could easily have come to £1150 at that rate.

£600 labour? I wonder what time it was dropped off & collected. £100/hour?

Learn to DIY it would be my advice

Major servicing is a great and rewarding task over a cold and wet winter weekend
Minor stuff can easily be done as you go
You learn an awful lot about your bike and it gets much better care and attention than any dealer will ever give it
The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.
