500.00DOLLARS!!!!holy crap get another dealer...NOW!!!you should be able to change your oil ten times for that kind of scratch!!Plus,I'm told by knowlegables on this site the 600 miler is not needed.Check your manual.just want to ask you experts your thoughts on having dealer perform is it worth it or is it just a 500.00 oil change what exactly do they do?
It would be hard to find any veteran rider here who would agree that a 600 mile service is necessary, and if it is it should be given as a free courtesy check by the dealer ; they are the ones who assembled the bike at their shop. I got the same line when I bought my 1300VTX. The salesman recommended that I return in 600 miles for a check up ( ? ), for $175.00. This was my first bike in 20 + years, but something just didn't smell right about this " service ". I drove away and never looked back. Is this little scam peculiar to Honda Dealers ? We all have the same stories. Hmmmmmmm.......500 was just tongue and cheek not a quoted price from the dealer just being sarcastic just want to know what 600 mile service is or if it is necessary
