MSX Service
2 years! That means a big service for the little chap.

Being honest I wasn’t expecting a bill as big as I got, but, incredibly, there’s a lot of labour to be had on such a small bike. Tappets are a pig to set, and right hand engine case comes off to get at oil filters...

As it is still under warranty too it made sense to keep that going...

Filters ... yep, there’s 2 of them
Oil filter gasket
Engine case gasket
Spark plug ( cooler one spec’d In book for constant flat out running )
Drain plug washer
Computer reset
12 months AA cover


Which divided over 24 months.... isn’t bad for a main dealer.

Did it not need a service at 12 months too?

That’s not too bad a bill really, the crazy labour rates usually take it well beyond that.

Honda have a crazy schedule as do BMW. It doesn’t go off the anniversary, but off the date of last service. It took me nearly 12 months to get the first service out of the way. And I’m only at 2,100 miles now. So I’m under the mileage limit of 2,500....

Totally bananas!

The quality of work and communication was good.

In the 2 years, it’s cost peanuts to run. With the exception of putting a gel/mat battery and a set of Michelin’s as the OE were worse than crap.

They are all like that Doc I think. 

Watch out with the Z900 servicing - on the Z1000SX the minor services were only visual checks!

Well said!

I’ve not looked tbh. I’ve only done just over 100 miles so the first service may be late this year or next? So I’ll check the time lapse later.

I take it you’ll be servicing it yourself - once the honeymoon period is over?
To the Regiment! I wish I was there.
Depends on the state of my back TBH. I’ve had a day of going through the CRF and I couldn’t get off the floor.
