Happy Wrenching!

The dealer wants $300 to do an oil change.

Well, not exactly.  They want $300 to do the initial 600 mile break-in service, which includes:

  • Replace engine oil and filter
  • Drive chain cleaning, lube, and adjustment
  • Tighten chassis bolts, exhaust pipe bolts
  • Brake inspection
  • Engine idle speed inspection
  • Throttle valve synchronization
  • Throttle cable play inspection
  • Steering inspection

Do they honestly believe I’ll hand over good money for something a person with a 5th grade reading level could do themselves?  Well, I wouldn’t.  And as soon as I learn to read good, I’m doing this service myself!
