That is a joke. You guys should put them under more pressure IMO.
Cannot just use a customer to mint money as they wish. So they want you to change the oil as well, every 6 months ?

Yup. They do "recommend" you change oil at every servicing. However, I told them not to. To be honest, there is little that can be done to pressurise them. Kawasaki India is least bothered. I dont even get feedback calls after the servicing.
We have only one showroom for the Big Kawis in Pune , SNK. I used to get my N250R serviced at Sai Service who were very good, very professional. I wish they start working on the Big Kawis ASAP.

Well their set up at Palm beach road (same Pune guys) is no less as the service person comes from Pune and they charge a Bomb. The Pune guys had sent me an invoice of 24k for the 1k ams service, which off course i refused and sent my bike else where. except for purchasing the bike from Pune ( palm beach road never existed then) my bike has no association with them for anything.

24K!! I suppose that includes service guys travel and stay? I cant think of anything else. Much cheaper and fun to ride down and get it done. Is there anyway to escalate this to Kawasaki? SNK guys are taking everyone on for a ride (in the worst sense possible)

This included. The technicians travel expenses (no stay) and food, loss to the service centre for the day, so 50% of the amount he earns for the company has to be paid by customer. Parts and labour. There was something else too, but memory is failing me after a year. This was for the 1000km service. Oh and at 1k kms, my engine lights came on and the bike would shudder and almost die out. Took it to my guy and there was no oil in the bike.

Sir why would i want to ride to Pune..then spend 9k on the service, when i can get it serviced 15 kms from my garage and that too at half the cost.

Someone needs to write them a letter and inform them. The problem is no one has the time and like my Father also said when i wanted to put a case on them. That the bike is home and they are not the only ones who can work on the bike..so ask them to keep their warranties and do what you want with the bike.

Close to 25k for a regular service that too @1k kms is totally ridiculous

In comparison, to service my friend's RSV4 in hyderabad the mechanic along with his sub-ordinate comes down from Pune and does the service at his place. I don't remember it costing him more than 10k for any service unless there is a need to change brake-pads. The service interval is 1 year/ 10k kms for RSV4. So no need for regular visits too. So far he is very much happy with the Aprilia Pune and they are always ready to help the customers

The normal charge everywhere is in the range of 6k to 12k (sometimes over) depending on what needs to be done. Kawasaki also has the same..1k kms and then every 10k kms. I try to get the bike checked every 5 kms.

Mr. Apte being a bike enthusiast and a rider himself..know what a customer wants and likes, so tries to do his best with Aprilla.

My response is for kawasaki quoting 25k for the service. I do get the bike checked every 4-5k kms even though the oil change is advised at 9-10k kms

Thats a very comprehensive service + log that you have maintained Sachin! Thank you for posting it. Its kind of surprising to see the variation in the price of the engine oil through the services. Were the lower costs because they were top-ups?

I am glad someone noticed it and asked the question. The 1st service was done back in Dec'12 & 9th service was done in Apr'15. The cost of Motul 300V has seen a hike in the past 3 years. It was around Rs.2000 back in Dec'12 whereas today it retails for Rs.2300.

1st Service was done in Bajaj KTM Ghatkopar service centre and they added full 2L oil. Subsequent servicing was done in KTM Sea Woods service centre where they added only 1.8L of oil and charged less. On further enquiry they said, as per manual only 1.8L of oil is needed. Hence, the price is reduced. My 5th service I had crossed regular service interval by +1k kms hence, I told them to add full 2L (ideally only 1.8L is needed). 6th Service, I had sourced oil from a Motul distributor and he gave me 10% off on the MRP, hence the cost is Rs.2070.

So the lower costs were because 200 ml less oil is needed which the service centre does not charge to the customer.

Cross Posting from Rachit's CBR650 thread.

Bike : Honda
Model : CBR650F
Year : 2015
Service Interval as per manufacturer (kms/year) :

1st Service Cost : Rs. 3130/-
Odometer Reading : 1023 kms
Breakup :
  • Oil Filter - Rs 1026
  • Engine Oil - Rs 2102
  • Labour - Free
Name / Address of the Service Center :
Other comments / Expenses Incurred :

1) Oil change. I checked, they put 10W30 fully synth of a brand called Throttle. I think it is probably a Honda brand only or has a tie up or something.
2) Oil Filter Change
3) Clutch tight
4) Their washing system was due for an upgrade so to compensate Dilip cleaned the bike with damp cloth and applied a healthy dose of wax to make up for it.
5) Chain clean and Lube. They use Motul lube and clean.
6) Various bolts tension check and tightening
