1190 Adventure First (500 mile) Service

I'm getting ready to make my first service appointment and wondered; how much did all you 1190 ADV owners pay for your first service, presuming you took it to the dealer where you bought the bike?

Isn't this service just a glorified oil change?

My friend, my 1,000 Km service was $335AUD it was done January 2014
Perhaps its a glorified oil change as you say, theres no getting away from it.. get the first done by your dealer and all will be sweet.
I also had the dealer do a 7,500Km service, so i want to keep my 1190 engine nice and clean.
The motor is now sweet and gear changes are slick, precise and make me have a wet dream every time i ride...

Theres nothing mysterious about doing the service yourself if you have a drain pan and funnel... Plus you get the satisfaction of knowing its done right and you save money to boot.
Just use the manual.

I think it's just an oil change and check the bike over. I spent approx $200. Yes I could easily have done it myself, but I wanted the service stamp, and I was damned if I was going to tighten the head bearings myself on a brand new bike.

Yes, do it yourself
I don't trust a lot of people with my Moto
I do it and do it right
Manual gives I step by step
It's as easy as changing oil

In the UK the first service labour is free, I paid GBP90 for oil, filter and "environmental charges"

You will also need the dealer to reset the service warning light.

You can reset the service warning yourself. Just gotta hold the up and down arrows down at the same time then go to settings.

I took mine to the local dealer. It was done in an a couple hours and $300 later. I can't say I got the warm fuzzies after having it done at the dealer - I never feel comfortable taking my vehicles to the dealer for whatever service.

I'll be changing the oil myself, and any major services I'll take it to the dealer. I need to bring mine in for warranty work - air temperature sensor failed and the horn wire snapped.

$200 seems reasonable.
I did the first service myself (oil/filter change and checked several points as per the owners manual). The bike has 5900 miles and has developed a small coolant leak so it's at the dealers today. I asked them to run the KTM diagnostic tool and use the 1000 K list to check the bike over. According to KTM, the 1st service should take them 71 minutes. That includes the labor time for the oil change. Supplies shouldn't exceed $100.

Nope, do it with ignition on. Bike not running.

Great Info Here!

Thanks for posting all the info here! Huge help to me, for sure!

I called for the appointment and was quoted it as a 2.5 hour job with $115 for parts and $280 for labor, for a grand total of $395.

I asked why it took so long (for what is essentially an oil change and visual inspection), especially considering KTM's official estimate of 71 minutes. I got, "Well I don't normally work at this dealership but I'll ask Vinnie and he'll have an answer for you at your appointment."

Needless to say, I have an email into a different dealership to get a comparison price & time.
