12000 klm service
on: May 10, 2013, 06:44:28 PM
Hi
I just had the 2'nd service yesterday, Its really only oil and filter with checks on everything else. On checking the air filter , it was found to be quite badly blocked / stuffed and the dealer kept it for me to see. I was happy for it to be replaced on inspection and the dealer said they have come across this before on the VFR1200 and in future will recommend replacement every 12000klms instead of the later schedule.
The bad news was the price of the filter was €52.80 plus vat plus fit!  :005:
I have the part number from the invoice so will check if I can source it cheaper elsewhere.

Im not sure why the crosstourer would be more susceptible to air filter degredation over other bikes. Very odd.

Have you priced up a k and n filter, i believe they are a bit cheaper, plus you can re use it over and over
