You Ask/You Answer: The cost of servicing

Published: 30 January 2013

Updated: 20 November 2014

"The cost of servicing my bike (2009 Ducati 848) isn't horrendous, but it is significant, as it was for the CBR600RR I had before it. The parts aren't too expensive, it's the main dealer labour rates that ramp it up – and I'm not arguing with their need to charge those rates, but I'm sorely tempted to do some of my own spannering. My question is – what level of home maintenance is wise, and where should I draw the line?"

Your answer could help. The best will be printed in MCN.
