6k service

Is 450 for a main dealer 6k , 1st year service outside of what anyone else gets quoted. I was expecting <300 for a 6k.
Any feedback gratefully accepted.

I paid 450 inc vat for my 6k service last month at Ron parkinsons essex, extras were, exhaust pipe plug 7.28, pinion fixing plate 2.69 and a 4-v open shim 4.32, labour was the bulk of the cost @ 245.....
748 bip.

Just looked on Ducati Manchester,nearset to me (45miles!!)They charge from 309(748bp/s) to 365(748r-what i've got!) all plus vat.If you don't need a stamp for warranty purposes,have a look on the forum for independants recommended by people on the forum ie Cornerspeed,JHP,Sigma etc.You'll probably get a better job at a more reasonable price too!!

I was quoted 450 by my nearest ducati dealer for a 6k service. Luckily I have a second main dealer only 16 miles away and he did the service for under 350.

450 sounds about right.
I had 6k done at Duc Manchester with belts and new clutch plates for about 487 after discount. Bike is a 996.
Wouldnt go anywhere but a pucca dealer if you are in warranty. If you are not then speak to Nelly (Cornerspeed). Hes yer man.

Thanks for the input guys.
Mine is an 748R and yes i do need the Warranty stamp, especially in light of the ongoing rocker issue. Not worth the risk of missing a stamp.
Thanks again

paulk,
why did they change the belts on a 6k service? They shouldn't need changing until 12k or 2yrs.

The bike was 2 years old at 6k mls - so had 6k service and belts rather than 12k service on the dealers suggestion.
