48km service
on: November 30, 2014, 11:04:28 PM
Just got the call from the mechanic that 7 shims/buckets need to be replaced.

Apparently we have none in stock for the country and I have a 2 week wait for them to arrive from Japan.

This is going to be a very expensive service.

Were they wearing masks?

No, but they were pretending to take pity on me.
The person I paid, eyes popped out of his head with an audible shock when he saw the bottom line.

Gee Spenze that total is horrific.  I'm considering buying either a CR, (that's why I'm on here) or a Yamaha Tracer and servicing costs is one consideration which may sway me towards the Yamaha.

I would imagine the labour costs would have been around $100.00/$110.00 an hour, still a lot of money for parts me thinks.  Living not that far from Melbourne I'm curious as to where you had the bike serviced.  I presume this would have been the second time the shims were checked, did any need replacing the first time?  What did the first check cost?

I know this is a Crossrunner forum but I suspect once you've had a
back-to-back test ride against a Tracer we won't be seeing you again.

The shins were checked at 24k km and nothing was out of spec. From memory the service was under $800. It cost more because I got some farkles put on.

Well Wedge, I've had a ride on a Crossrunner and really liked it.  Haven't got past sitting on a Tracer so far, my local dealer says he's getting in a demo bike but they're pretty hard to get at the moment, selling well apparently.

Thanks for that info Spenze.  The simpler Tracer motor with clearances checked every 40,000k's is sounding good though.  Still, I'll buy the bike which puts the biggest grin on the face, but if there's nothing between 'em it'll be the Tracer.  It seems there's a few issues with the Tracer though, I'd want to be sure all was sorted before I put my money down.

Just done the conversion to UK sterling!  :005:

Nuff said. Hope those farkles were diamonds for that price.

Just paid €747 here for the same thing. Equates to £530 for the full monty, oils, plugs, filters etc and 6.5 hrs labour. A pair of new tyres and front wheel bearings saw me bust the €1K level for the first time on any bike.....hmmm.
