Major service cost VTR250 12,000km

  1. Hi guys,

    My beloved VTR250 has just ticked over the 12,000km mark and according to the service manual it needs a major service oil, plugs, inspections etc.. but also it says it needs a valve clearance check.

    How much will I be up for? I just want rough ideas so when I call up for quotes I'll know if I'm being ripped or not.

    Also, a mate of mine said valve clearance at 12,000km sounds very early? he suggested not to get it done untill 24,000km?
    Thoughts on this?? Not getting it done will obviously make the servicing cheaper that's all.

  2. are you sure it says valves clearances? thats really early....
  3. It says here in my service manual booklet 12,000km valve clearance inspect.
  4. ~$500 total......
