    Hi all,
    Need to do book in for the 24k service which is a major service. Checked with Raceway Suzuki, niddrie who said around $800 or so. Said they need approx 6hours @ $110/hour labour for this. Would this be reasonable? Any other recommendations in NW of Melbourne? TIA .. enjoy the festive season boys n girls and ride safe

    They tell you at 24000 they do a valve clearance check which is why they say they need 6 hrs. More likely that they will do a standard service and change your plugs in an hour and the bike will sit there for 5 hours but charge you the maximum

    DIY mate, you can check the valve clearances yourself...step one ride bike for 3 hours, step 2 listen to motor whilst riding at 5000rpm, if it sounds like a purring pussycat valves are ok.:bigthumbsup:

    So, the question remians.... are you going to get it done / not done?
    Do it yourself or call a friend?
    Or just leave it?

    If you don’t ride it, you don’t have to service it I guess.

    24k service done.
    Labour was $600 which included an extra bit of work I asked them to do outside of the service.

    I would not for a moment challenge all the knowhow here.
    And the input from all, is very much appreciated.
    However, some of us don't have the skill, access or facility to do this work.
    Its one thing describing it on a forum, quite another doing it.
