Call your local dealer!!!!!!!!!!How much would a 16,000 miles servicing cost ?

Damn, I might do this myself too when time comes. That’s a little chunk of cash.The dealer I bought my bike from was a little over 1,400 for the 15k service. I'm no where near that mileage but was overlooking their service intervals. At 15, your looking at spark plugs, valve adjustment, oil change, air filter change, etc.
I’ve found dealers to have the least competent techs out of all the mechanics I’ve used auto or bike. I did have my first service done on my bike for warranty but after that I try never to go there. Or I’ll find someone better.My dealer was supposed to flush my coolant and replace with distilled water when I bought it..track bike..I think all they did was dump the coolant ( not flush) and fill with water. Still had Glycol in it when I dumped it for the winter...no more dealer shit.
That’s crazy. Maintenance price on a Beemer is one of the reasons I won’t look at a S1000RR when I do get another bike.Thats cheaper than the 12,000 or 24,000 mile service on my BMW F800GT! Only reason I had the dealer do the service was I bought a service contract with unlimited miles - only used 2 of the 3 years before I traded the bike. Cost was $1,500 all the services totaled about $5,000 so I came out ahead.
What is not mentioned above is the dealer screw-ups. In addition to a couple of fasteners falling off I had the engine filled with water (no was not for a track day), exhaust valve set to intake valve spec and drive belt too tight. IMO the drive belt too tight caused a rear wheel bearing failure. Fortunately it failed just as I was getting off the interstate, even better it was in Grand Island Nebraska. Best part was a new bearing from BMW is part of the rear hub which costs $995 if you can find one. Found a complete swingarm in eBay for $550. Wait it gets better - I don't live in Grand Island, 1,100 miles from home and 2nd night of what was supposed to be a 17 day trip to Idaho and Montana! The very best part was I fixed the bike and rode it to Sioux Falls SD to Vern Eide Motoplex and traded it for a new Yamaha Tracer GT - wahoo I have a bike with a great engine sound that will lift the front wheel. Sure do miss my ZX6R but it wasn't good for 6,000 mile solo trips. I was very impressed with that dealership and their service department. Super nice folks that treated me great - knowing they might never see me again. While I was there had a great time looking at the snowmobiles - don't see them down south.
