    Hi I was wondering about the cost of the 600 mile service, I own a Tiger 900 GT PRO and have just had my 600 mile service, it cost me £189, I found this a bit expensive , I could not get to the dealer in Glasgow due to it is still in level 3 restriction, so took it to another Triumph dealer in Scotland, any thoughts

    This is always part of the pre purchase discussion for me. I have bought 6 new Triumphs and only paid for oil and filter at first service on each of them. I think you got hosed mate.

    Based on what I paid for the 1st service on my tractor I'd say the cost was possibly a little expensive, but not excessive. This is based on the fact that you didn't buy the bike from that dealer so they would have charged you the full cost without any discount which is fair. Very often if you get it done at the dealer you bought the bike from you're only charged for the parts for the first service or if you're lucky and you negotiate it as part of the sale they'll do it free. In your case I think you were just unlucky in not being able to get your 1st service done at the supplying dealer. I would contact them and find out if the 1st service would have been cheaper with them and if it was see if they will agree to give you a discount on it's next service as a way of some form of compensation.

    I think I paid £110/120 for my Z900rs back in September 2020 and about the same for my Tracer's second service.

    I paid over £180 for the first service on my Street Scrambler last Summer which I thought was a lot for the type of bike it is and what they actually did. Haven"t decided yet if I'm going to have the first main service done, where I'm going to take it or if I'm going to do it myself like I have done on all my previous bikes.

    Are you a Tyke or do you just live in Yorkshire ?

    This is probably the most boring man on the planet. But I was looking to see what implications there were on doing your own maintenance on new machines and found him.
    I fell asleep while watching but the main points are worth noting. Do it yourself.
