Mine was under $100, much better than an oilhead. Not sure of the exact figure since I had bought some other little goodies and oil and the whole bill was $100.

$205 in Watsonville, CA and I didn't get any fancy printout nor wash. :mad:

Later, the Chico, CA dealer told me they charge $125 for the first service. :confused: leading to :mad: :mad: :mad:

Seems a BIG difference, fwiw, and I doubt if BMW-NA gets involved in service pricing matters if it's out of the customer's pocket.

If I were you, I'd phone and ask first and then hold them to it...or make a vacation out of it and ride to somewhere else on the savings.

Fwiw, friend needed his old R100GS serviced (transmission leak), bought used for $4000. Dealer to north of him quoted $2400. One to south said $600. Go figger. In end, the one to south (Ventura) did the work for $600, washed his bike, and did some inspection service too. He was happy.

it's been my experience that service prices vary wildly from dealer to dealer, always call first, get a quote, get a name and hold them to the quote price.

Same here in GA. $119. Cheaper then on Oilheads.

6000 is supposed to be like $149, its $30 more because of something extra they do not sure what.

I always did my own work on previous BMW's I own, first because I knew I was doing it and made me feel better, also because the previous bike was an LT which you have to sell a limb to pay for service on it.

On my K1200S I bought it new and decided I am going to let the shop do all the Scheduled maintenance for record keeping and resale purposes since I know the K1200S is not a bike I will keep forever.

I am very very happy so far with the cost of maintenance on the new K bikes.

205.88 A&S BMW...and I was happy it wasn't $400 - $500..geezz some of you guys got t good.
Now, why can't BMW just put the first 600 service in as part of the sales price of the bike..like it would kill them or something!
