I'm thinking of getting a Tiger 800 XC or F800GS but I was wondering how much they cost to service; are the premium brands much more expensive to service than the Japanese ones?
Triumph & BMW Servicing costs

I know its a radical idea..
but why not ring the dealers and ask? - they usually have menu pricing now
In my experience, most main dealers will ave' yer kex down given half a chance!
Both nice bikes though...good choice, whichever you go for
Before you part with any money
do a deal which includes servicing. You never know you may be lucky.
Don't know if its a standard thing at all Triumph dealers, but Jack Lilley, my local dealer, just serviced, MOT'd and put new tyres on my T'bird and it was £74 for an annual service, plus parts. I thought that was a good price.
"are the premium brands much more expensive to service than the Japanese ones?"
No,it just depends on the model,and access to things such as valves etc. On the models you mention,the price is pretty similar so I wouldn't worry. Just don't buy a Kawasaki GTR1400 if it needs a 12,000mile service done by the book,or you'll be looking at between 8-10 hours labour " />
if u buy say a gsxr1000 from say george white ya 1st 2 years or 2 services r free, but if say u buy a bmw s1000rr sport your 1st 600m service will be 149.50p fact but lets face it the bm is twice the tool oh n costs abit more 2 hope this helps
