Where to get first service done? CBR500R

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' started by DonJuan, Nov 20, 2014.

  1. Hi all, new to motorcycling and have a new bike.

    To avoid warranty pitfalls, etc. I am looking for recommendations on a good workshop to get my first (500km) service done including the valve check.

    Any recommendations, preferably western suburbs of Melbourne???

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Valve check at 500km?? What about the dealer you bought it from??
  3. I got the bike for a bargin as the dealer was closing due to the car yard wanting more space. I'd known about this happening for a while before I changed my mind to go with pne of their bikes (was going to buy a Kawa 650L)... It's a Honda CBR500 thing apparently with all new bikes???
  4. DonJuanDonJuan is your bike the '13 or '14 version? Only the '13 version needs the valve check, mine the '14 does not.
  5. mines a 2013...

  6. That is a pain then, not sure where to get it done in Melbourne sorry mate.
