quoted $1600 for 12K service???

Hi all, I took my bike in for it 12,000 mile service(09) 990 ADV. When I dropped it off I told them 12K service plus tires plus reflash map to try and smooth out throttle at low speed. Several days later They call and give me a quote of $1600 dollars.
Can anyone tell me what they paid for a 12K service. This seems about double what I believe it should be.
Good safe riding to all.

I paid €1600 or $2192.64 for the full service, new rubber and brakes front and rear.
To put that in perspective thats 33% of what I paid for the bike in the first place.
To me it was worth it.

HA! $1600 in tools would set me up real nice to do ALL services myself AND pimp out the garage a little bit more.....even the techy bits that deal with the on board ECU or any electro-bits can be dealt with by Tune ECU (Free program).
Of course there is a learning curve and some are more mechanically inclined than others, but you can save yourself a lot of time and money, not to mention peace of mind by doing most, if not all work yourself.

I learned this leasson the hard way with my Ducati's. Dealer servicing was killing me and took forever....finally I bought the haynes manual, read the forums and asked A LOT of questions and started doing all the work myself.

But yeah, back to your question....I find $1600 on the high side, but not totally out of the realm of possibility seeing as it is being done by a Stealer. Dan's right as well...$500 of that is probably your tires and install. Figure $300-ish for the tires and whatever BS mounting fee they charge, plus tax.
