Hello All,

Got my Versys 650 LT last year, signed up but for the forums but work had it blocked for the longest time. Any way. Love the bike, just turned over 4k miles. A little low at this point. Look forward to some discussions.

New to the forums, had the Versys 650 for about 9 months now, just over 4k on mileage. Should triple that this summer. Is the 4k inspection mandatory. I have the service contract with my dealer?

Good Dealer

So to keep it short, I do all my own work and usually buy any special tools or adapters, that way I limit the down time and usually the cost of all my special tools and adapters would be paid for my the second service, when I look at labour costs. However, because I got a awesome deal, I thought it only appropriate to get the first service done by the dealer, what may be hard to believe is it was $135 Canadian parts and labour, so I have also compared prices for special tools with other members in Ontario and their dealers, I have been told by several now that my dealer is giving me about a 10 to 15% discount. They rarely advertise and have both Yamaha and Kawasaki, it is a family operation, and they do extremely well.
So check with your dealer and ask how much for the first service, it should be under $150 USD total.
