A $900 service looked to be oil,plugs,filters and a look over.

I love my DR650
I know which I'd rather take for a fun drive though.....and it aint the DR

Not likley - my 98 mitsubishi triton has 250,000 km and it's still on the original rear pads, I got 180,000 km out of the front pads. Makes the one day I got out of some ebc pads on my KTM 400 look pretty bad! (especialy given I used to get 12 month out of original KTM pads)

I once paid $22500.00 for a KTM keyring.








They threw in a KTM 950 Adventure with it but it was the keyring that I was really wanting.

thats understandable most people would rather have a key ring rather than a KTM

But back to your question, i still rate $37 five years ago for a fuel filter a tad rich, and $400 for stick coils was painful on the day. Earlier this year i cracked a head light and was quoted over $500 for a new item, Motorworks do a new one for way under, but i bought a second hander from them, saved me hundreds.

the .uk one or the .com.au one?

I can justify $317 for a new drive shaft for a GS1100 and an average life of 120,000km so it is cheaper than chains and sprockets.......(well they were that price 5 years ago)...now the dealers want $1200.00..... Tractor Replacements sold me 2 Uni-joints for $95 each....and took me about an hour to fit....

Rear fuel cap 690RR

I lost the rear plastic fuel cap from my 690RR. After not being able to get an after market cap to fit I was quoted $340 for a replacement which the dealer kindly discounted to $280. WTF

Had a Ducati Superlite serviced with new tyres as well. They took the wheels off and for some reason decided the sprockets needed to be removed. Broke one of the studs. (I saw it mid-service.....bullshitted me the thing was rusted on....the fracture clearly showed they broke it by turning it the wrong way !!!!!! ALL other studs were fine and shiny) They ordered a replacement. One bolt $75 !!!!! They had the bike and would not let it go until I paid. A few years later same shop ripped off my business Partner with a consignment sale of his bike. They are no longer in business. Apparently the owner absconded owing people a lot of money.

By law they can't hold your bike if you are disputing payment...
