Q about 1000km service
What exactly does the dealership do for a steering check? I did everything else for the 1000km service myself, but the steering check should be done by the dealer, according to the owner's manual.
On mine they want $280 to adjust the chain and do an oil change.
I'm gonna do my own, I have a torque wrench.

I would bet they test ride it. That's it. Look for a leak then Bill you $200.00++
rain? whats that!
Thats an incredible amount of change for 1/2 hours worth of work, unless the FZ6 has something special about chain adjustments or oil changes.

I think they are supposed to sync carbs or throttle bodies too but don't count on it.
Basically, they adjust your throttle cable(even though you have it set where you want it), clutch cable, chain, change oil and filter, and maybe give it a look around to see if the back wheel is falling off.
This is easy money for a dealer and the charge is normally $180.00 and I have paid $250.00.
Now that I know it is NOT a warranty requirement, I do it myself.
We do first 1000km services for $99 that includes oil and filter
