paying anyone to do your first service is like throwing money out your window.

change your oil, your oil filter, check your chain, lube it, check for leaks.... you would be lucky if the stealership did all that.

cost? what 8 - 12 bucks for a filter, 25 - 50 for oil, about 30 mins of you time.

We are talking about the Duc's not the RC in regards to the expensive service.

the Duc's constantly need to have Valve Adjustments done at the service intervalls so its a little more involved then a simple oil change and retorquing bolts

That would for sure be a tough call. I personally love the sound of the dry clutch on the Duc's. But i think the RC has a better exhaust note. I think its just really a moral dilemma!

On the cover of Sport Bike Magazine (I think. Don't quote me on the rag's title) there's a shootout between the 1098 and the new CBR 1000. Let me give you a quick synopsis: "Of course the 1098 is better, it costs almost twice the $$. What else would you expect for that much dough? Bang for the buck...CBR 1000 is a GREAT bike." My only point is a simple one. Of course the Duc is a better bike, what else would you expect for almost $20K. I'll stick with my Honda, thank you...
