Hey Guys, How much is spent to keep your bike purring?
So first, List your bike.... And second average cost per year.
Not incuding mods or extras... just pure maintenance.
It would depend on the bike and who's doing the work.
I'm running a Triumph Sprint but you'd find the same results with most modern Jap. bikes. Biggest difference will be if you can do you're own work.
I was doing 30,000 a year and that's 6 oil changes (6x$50.00), a set of tires or a set and a rear($300-500), and maybe a chain every second year(300). A valve adjust might be $200-300 and fuel filters, brake pads, etc. all add up. Also the cost of riding gear has to be added in. I'd guess it's somewhere around $1000 to $1500 for just basic running costs. If something goes wrong though, you could tack an extra $1000 easy.
I've never actuallt sat down and figured it out because I'm afraid if I did, I'd quit & by a Geo Metro.
