1. The brake flush on the 08 GT is easy and not the old complicated one for the early GT's more complicated system. It was so easy I did it myself. How much are they charging for that service? I took me less than an hour and I'm an amateur. It is a glorified brake bleed process.
2. How do they "check the injectors" What would they check other than seeing if the computer showed any faults?
3. Agree the valves are critical and a pain to do, but most/many (not ALL) GT's need NO adjustment at the 12k, 18K, or even 24K.
4. What % of bikes have had a cam/sprocket failure?
$800 services are why I have learned to do most of my own service on two bikes, saving enough $$$ to take a vacation each year. YMMV
