16000 MILE SERVICE
« on: December 22, 2011, 11:07:58 PM »
Just out of interest does anyone have any idea of the average cost of the 16000 mile service? If anyone has had one done on a vfr this might also be a guide

Cost of 16000 mile service varies greatly.  firstly if you have main stealers do it or a trusted independent.  biggest cost is labour.  secondly how many shims n buckets may be needed and how many shims can be used in a different position.
In all honesty bill can vary from about 250 upwards.  that sounds steep but also factor in the costs of plugs and the air filter is far from cheap.  id be looking at 350-400.  any cheaper and id be asking myself why ?  its a good 10 hr job allegedly.
BUT......... The 16k is a check remember.  If shims and gaps are within tolerances then cams don't need to come out. Then bill will be far less.
If you remove fairings yourself, that would save an hour in labour.
My local trusted independent charges about 32 quid an hr which is considerably cheaper than main agents.
There seems to be a lot of conjecture on whether the job is done properly or not at a lot of garages.  id personally ask for photos and what tolerances were on all shims. 
May seem expensive but the quad cam v4 vtec engine is quite exotic.
If you are happy doing shims and stuff like that all you need is the haynes manual, feeler gauges vtec locking pins, time, space and patience. 
Some people leave it till 32k with no problems.  it also depends on how hard you ride the bike as to how much wear the shims have.
