Did 1 year service of my RE Interceptor 650: Tasks performed & costs

I had put back the stock air filter before dropping off the bike and got a brand new one on the return since they said the old one was dirty.

BHPian tharian recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Got the 1 year/10k kms service completed today. The bike had run 5700 kms.

The complaints were, chain slack adjustment and squeaking sound from the rear disc when applying brakes. Both were fixed and the engine oil replaced as well. I haven't decided yet on going with a different brand of oil for the time being as the Liquid Gun works fine for my kind of riding and service intervals.

Thankfully there were no adjustments done to any of the levers and I was hoping they wouldn't adjust the valves either which thankfully they didn't since there was no tappet noise. I had put back the stock air filter before dropping off the bike and got a brand new one on the return since they said the old one was dirty. I kept it aside and put back the performance filter which I have gotten used to now. I need to ride the bike more to notice any difference from the fresh engine oil.

The bill amount was R..3140.

This was an old garage,now a A.S.S, that's been around a while and I have visited them few times many years ago too for my Bullet. The workshop is filled with cast iron engine bikes and just few modern bikes. There was just one Interceptor apart from mine inside the workshop.

A neat looking 535 I saw when dropping off my bike at the service centre:
