One dealer quoted me the first service (600 miles) that took 4.5 hours ????? mainly because they had to syncornixe the throttles ???
the other two dealers in town quoted on a simpler service
Has anyone else been quoted on a more expensive service ??
Your owners manual covers the recommended mileage and service. I have owned a 07 Versys 650 and now 2015 Versys 650. Throttle body synchronization is something directly related to valve shim check. Your bike should come already with the throttle bodies synced from the factory. Typically they are to check all bolts if they are tight, change the oil and filter, and give you a rub down. Typical cost is around $140 Canadian, parts and labour. About 1 hour to 1 1/4 hrs. FYI you can do the service yourself provided you documented the oil change, put in the proper oil and filter. I paid $140, as I got several deals from my dealer, and it was a way of saying thank you. Again this is my experience on the 650 Versys, you may be paying extra for the rub down
. I really question where they get this 4.5 hour service, on a new bike, this ain't no Harley, no offense to members that have a Harley.JMHO
More detail on synchronization, the largest cost is labour, as plastic, gas tank and airbox need to come off on the 650ABS, this to get at the capped vacuum ports, a suggestion on this forum was carried out by me and is detailed here in the first post. If you sync is off it is easier to adjust with all this off, however
once it is all apart and it shows balanced, you need to put everything back together, this is very expensive due to the amount of work involved. In my case, I can check the balance in 5 minutes and 5 minutes later be riding down the road. http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...onewizard.html
