I was quoted $250. I beleive that was for the valve adjustment only, no extras.

I'm sure it would be easier for me the second time, but I found it too be a frustrating job, and may consider paying the $250 the next time it needs to be done.

Tire change $20 to $40. You R&R . It's worth it!

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

I paid $250 for a full tune up that included all fluids, valve, brake, and clutch adjustments. You need to find a good shop you trust with a good labor rate. Stealerships are the last place I would go.

Just had them done last week in Fall River Ma for $80. I think I told you that during the chicken wing lunch 10 days ago.

Wow, I just got quoted $500 from the dealer. It's never been to a dealer and looks like it never will!

Just paid $250 for a valve adjust on mine last Saturday. I had the bike all apart and was going to do it myself but then got cold feet (couldn't get the R/T and F/T to line up in the view window properly after repeated attempts. I think the problem was I didn't have any beer) and decided to put it all back together again. Need to clear out the garage and get it set up better for work'n on the bike.
