Hi and :401:

You certainly need another owner in Thailand to answer you. Here in the UK the 1st service at 500miles (about 800kms) is done free of labour charge, we basically just pay for the oil, filter and washer. 2hrs certainly seems a lot of labour charge for an oil and filter change and basically a visual inspection of the bike.  :027:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

:0461:  But, the prices sure seem reasonable?
I don't have any idea of Thai currency conversion -- but, comparing to what's on the receipt -- looks a bargain? (especially hourly labor charge...)  :187:

Yes, an hours labour cheaper than a litre of engine oil (even with 10% discount).  :114:

650 THB equals about $20 USD -- Triumph should have a factory in Thailand...   :087:

The labour hourly charge says 650 Thai baht (15)...we in the UK pay around 70 upwards an hour.  :084:  :023:

Yes but, the 1st service (@ US/UK shop) may only take about 25 minutes - not 2 hours - so the resulting labor charge may be about the same..?  :187:
