Just hit 5k miles! 10k Looming.....

Ok so I just hit my 5k mile mark and made my appointment for scheduled service. The next one from what I can tell is a big one at 10k. For those of you who did not do the 10k yourself what did it cost you? From what I've been hearing at the dealer the 10k, while one of the most important is also an expensive service. I'm guessing in the 800 dollar range. How much did you guys have to shell out for the 10k?

Thanks!

HS

It'll save you alot of money to buy the service manual and do it yourself. I'm not what I would consider "mechanically inclined" and was successful in completing the job. The most difficult part was getting to one of the two spark plugs and that was just tedious. I had a friend over with his NRS and it took around 4 hours and a six pack beer or so to complete both bikes. There are some videos around here and on youtube detailing many v-rod specific jobs. Then you can spend that hard earned money on more mods! Check them out and good luck.

I bought a 3 year service plan for about $1850. It covers up to 3 yrs or 30,000 miles. I get 7 service and about $264 each. I got my bike in late June. My 5k is just 700 more miles away. I guess I am just someone who has no interest in working on my bike but to ride it.
