Dealer service
« on: April 13, 2021, 01:24:21 pm »
Need some opinions.

The 701's OEM warranty runs out in Feb next year. It had its run-in service in May last year. Due for the first annual service (mileage now just over 5k) in May. Is it worth it to spend R2.2k for an oil change and a bunch of "checks" with the dealer to maintain the OEM warranty for another 10 months or just do it myself? I'm comfortable doing service work.

Btw at the run-in service they overfilled oiled by 350ml......

Oil + filter/screen kit will set you back R1250.00 at least. I'd suggest dealer service to keep warranty (just in case). Double check any work done by dealer (just in case).

Next service DIY or somewhere reputable (Runner  :thumleft:)

5000km in a year? Ride more  :ricky:

You answered your own question - unless you will willingly void it by having it serviced by a non-authorized dealer.
