Just do it yourself if you feel capable!

I f*cked getting it serviced off a tthe 7,500 mark, and have done it myself since then.

Just read te manual or the stickied notes at the top and do it yourself, it'll be cheaper plus you'll learn more.

*slaps the person who posted this for not having the common sense to look in their owners' manual!*

If you RTFM, it says after the first 600 miles, you need it done every 2500. It also tells you what to get done at each service (although if you walk in and say it needs an xxxx mile service, they'll know what to do).

Dunno how you got charged 60 quid... My cbr got serviced free of charge at it's 600 mile service.

Didn't even have to pay for that. The dealer f*cked me around so much before I got my bike that they said they'd pay for everything for the first service.

Wrong. First service shouldn't cost you for labour. They will still charge for parts and fluids.

The dealer I went to told me that the CBR was the only bike they didn't offer this on either. But because they screwed me around, they paid for the whole lot for me!

the first service is at 600 miles and is just an oil change and a general check over. The next service is at 2500 miles. From then onwards it will be a major/minor service every 2500.

Hrmm... No...

You misunderstand, I believe.

They told me it was every 2500 miles after the first 600. So the first major service will be 3100 miles. Then every 2500 after that. so 5600. 8100. And so on.

Erm... 50 or so miles won't. Coupla hundred is more than I would be willing to risk on mine though

it would only have been your second service that was 600 miles late anyway, all the others would be done at the correct mileage (relatively speaking)

Well, yeah. But that's still 600 miles more than needed. Thanks for pointing out that my dealer's a wally!

Besides, in the last month i've only done 1400 miles (got it brand new a month ago!)
