    Is the Crosstourer an expensive bike to service? Is the V4 engine tricky for mechanics to work on?

    So far so good in my case; done the first check at 1000 km:
    - oil + filter change;
    - transmission oil change;
    - general check (nut and bolts, fluid levels, etc.);
    - workforce

    150€

    Normal price for Italy standards  :305:

    Next check at 12000 km, honestly I do not know how much more it will cost.

    Hi 2Shea,
    The big service @16000miles that includes a valve check is pricey, Takes 7-8 hours and at Honda Ballymount prices that's faint inducing. I don't know what your comparing it to for price. The usual oil and filter and checks service is similar to other models.
    Plenty of discussion on here previously on costs.

    I got my 16000 mile service done in Belfast honda for £400. I am due an annual service now with 20000miles on it. Probably will try bring it back to Belfast, afraid of what Ballymount will charge. Anyone had an annual service done by them?

    6-7 hours! Oh I can only imagine. Belfast sounds like the best option. What Lee's in Cork?

    Rember a good deal of that 7-8 hours is waiting for the engine to get stone cold to check the valves. I took mine in the day before so it cooled overnight and picked it up late morning.

    Do you hang about in Belfast while they are it or come back for it?
