I've just had the 500mile service. Denver Garage do mine and said that a 6000miler should cost about 250 Quid. They change the belts, oil, filters, etc, along with the usual checks. The valves are checked, re-shimming costs extra as does replacement of the rocker arms which often need replacing if the bikes had a hard time.
They also recommend changing the oil and filter every 3000miles between services with fully synthetic oil. They used 10/50W Putoline Syntec 4+ or something like that.

Really? 6k miles is a belt tension, not change as far as I am aware. As the belts will cost approx 80 (might be more now) I doubt you'd get away with 250 with that.

As Ducati dealerships are all going to be charging the same hourly rate, you will (probably) find that the 6k will cost you about 450 and the 12k (which includes the belt change) about 550. Give or take. It's a 10 hour service, which at 35 an hour is 350 labour, plus oil and filter, plus petrol filter and o-ring.

Of course, I'm happy to be corrected on any of the above.

Doesn't the service book detail what should be done?

The belts need changing at 12k miles or 2 years,whatever comes first.
Ducati used to list the service shedules in the handbook but now you can find it in the service coupon/warrenty book.

I assumed it was the very rare "749er" ... a prototype "ecconomy race" version.

Sorry - best I can do this time of the morning.

Think R models 749/999 get a belt service at 6K and the service is quite costly, the 749R is the most expensive to service of the current Ducati range... there was a thread a good year ago about this very subject

You just talked me out of upgrading to the R, Jon!

I've never seen a 749R in yellow, was that ever an option? Just going by the bike in the Avatar of course.
