Cool man, maybe I sould be changing my own oil from now on.
Werd!I do my own oil changes and that is the only way to go if you are able. I would suggest a full synthetic oil and not a blend and once you go syn. --stay syn.
Full Synthetic costs a little more but I am sold on it.
Where did the $500 come into the picture?sounds good thanks painter. nice to know that the dealer wasn't trying to stiff me for $500.00 for the service check and oil change.
Yeah. Where did that come in???? I think it ran about $150 total for the complete 1st service including the Valve adjust.Where did the $500 come into the picture?
Holy Crappola......Somethings wrong with that dealer......Mine has $19.95 for everything....oil, filter and labor......I found out today, that they want $90 to change the oil on my Fury, WOW!!!!!TOP
From the VTXOA bord, FOR INFO ONLY.Anybody know what regular brand oil filters will work for replacement? I'd prefer not to purchase the overpriced honda filters and find one by Wix or Bosch. I see Wix 51365 works for other VTX1300 bikes, so that should probably work.
That is about what the oil alone costs.Holy Crappola......Somethings wrong with that dealer......Mine has $19.95 for everything....oil, filter and labor......
For those that want to do it themselvesI plan on doing my own oil changes also an will be switching also to full synthetic but I was unaware of a special synthetic for motorcycle only. Any one know of the better choices for synthetic for motorcycles.
I know....I asked him how he does it, and his answer was they buy the oil in bulk form.....big drum....he passes the savings on to his customers.That is about what the oil alone costs.
Get the K&N filter. It has a nifty hex head on it so you can take it off with a normal wrench. And if you want to look really awesome get the chrome one.My 600 mile service was $179, Oil and filter suggestions are appreciated since I will be doing this myself.
