This is how I got scared into buying a maintenence agreement: 36 mo. for $1700 bucks - I was told that if you ride an average of only 6k miles per year, it would pay for itself. I ride about 10k and obviously, you are riding more. That being said, the 6k service should have cost about $400 +/-, right? If you have to do any of the valve adjustments, I was told that it's a flat $500 bucks. They factor that into the cost of the service, so it would not be $900, but I would imagine around $700+/-? All conjecture. Please keep us posted!!
