I've always done my own motorcycle maintenance. But today I stopped at the Kawi dealership to order the relay to install the power outlet and they had a sign on the wall that said "Motorcycle or ATV oil change, filter, and lube: $133". I mean...WTF??? I'm sure that's not even using synthetic oil.
Guy I rode with last summer, same 2015 as my bike $150 for a oil change in Toronto Ontario area. I did a post way back then, the guy couldn't figure how to get the plastic off. FastEddie responded to the fact it is in the owners manual. My personal thought was if you are strapped for funds and you pay that to change the oil , you really can't afford to own a bike. Same guy had a unfortunate incident and hit scrap metal doing over 100 clicks, damaged the front tire and rim, another $1k down the drain.
