Am about to get the 12,000 Km service done. Got three prices of which two seem overly inflated for what they are doing. Basically it is still Engine Oil and Filter change and check everything over. Time allotted is 3 hours at about $110/hour for labour plus parts. I bet they spend about 1.5 hours actually working on it directly. 30 mins to check everything over and about 1 hour for the oil drain/refill and filter change. If it didn't pose potential warranty issues/questions I would just do it myself.

Kelen Kawasaki Penrith = $350-360
Sydney City Motorcycles = $400
Alto Motorcycles = $430 - $450

That's some wildly fluctuating prices for the same bike, same service, all Kawasaki dealers.

Anyone heard any cheaper prices anywhere in the Sydney Metro area?

WOW I thought Bike Biz was expensive.....
They normally charge me 350. That is the Kawa one at Granville.

Lloyd Penn at artarmon havnt used them in a few years but were always reasonable on price with great service

Now i know its not a kwaka dealer but Hills Motorcycles at Castle Hill have a really good rep with friends and none ride suzukis or hyosungs so i'd givem a go
