32K miles service next Friday 1st Nov
on: October 25, 2013, 09:10:59 PM
The big one is upon the company bike.
I dread to think how much this will cost ... it includes new iridium plugs .... I'm guessing a load of money for them alone!!!
Time to sell the house  :016:

Keep us informed, I feel we may need to be sitting down first though!
Is it company policy to do the valves EVERY time they are due, many bikes miss the odd valve check & still run fine!

Have there been any issues with the bike, other than the shock & plug coil/s?

Sorry chaps .... as you can see, I'm not a regular visitor!
Valves needed doing again. A mixture of inlet and exhaust.
Spark plugs replaced. Just short of £800 !!
I'm now on my second winter. Just approaching 34K miles.
Side stand switch is still iffy, but I've given up telling them as it always starts working when it's in the workshop!!!
Seat still hanging off tank!
Had my first set of rear brake pads at 30K.
Think I'm on my 6th set of fronts. Gave up with the Honda ones as they are like chocolate. Using Vesrah HH.
Still swear by my mis-matched pair of tyres : Michelin PR3 front and Bridgestone 023 rear.

cheers.

Cheers for the update.
£800 is a lot but then for a full service inc shim change, pads, plugs & filters maybe it's acceptable?

PR3 & 023r an interesting combo, presumably you find this better than pr3 f&r?

I think that there will be a lot of CRs being sold just before their 32k service!!!  :158:

Yes, if you look at average miles, I'm guessing for most people that 16K miles is about 18 months, which seems acceptable.

I was shocked how badly the PR3 squared off straight from the off. The 023 is much better wearing whilst still being a good wet weather tyre.
The front PR3 is amazing in the wet but is also able to hustle when you're in the mood.
