Service work pricing

I just wanted to check and see what all of you are paying or getting quoted for service work. Around here the prices are ridiculous! It's 200-250 for full fluid changes and your typical spring tune up. In some cases that doesn't even include a new spark plug or diff fluid change. To top it off, parts are extra... I have not brought my atv in since buying it used from my dad 1.5 years ago. I have done oil changes, greased the zerks, cleaned the air filter, replaced the battery, and fixed the smashed front bumper. So part of me wants to know what your paying, and the other part of me would like to know how much is involved in changing the diff fluids. I'm assuming this cant be to hard... Any advice or input on pricing is welcome!

About the same here in canuckistan. The shop here charge $95/hr. Needless to say, I won't be going back.

A diff change is 15 min. A diff. And 13 of those min is letting it drain. The rear has a drain plug, a fill plug, and a wheep plug. Remove the fill plug and then the drain plug. Wait untill its empty. Then Remove the wheep plug and put the drain plug back in. Add the fluid until it starts leaking out of the wheep hole, then put all the plugs back in. The front has no wheep plug. So just fill it until it leaks out of the fill hole.
The only thing is you need a long funnel or better yet a pump that goes on your new diff fluid bottle. They are $10-$15 at your local automotive parts store.

Changing the diff. fluid is simple as stated above.
The rub with servicing at our local dealer in Montrose, Colorado is they forget to add fluid after draining the old.
Here, you pay full price to the dealer service department and then stop at the auto supply for more oil on the way home.

To save yourself a lot of heartache be very very careful not to over tighten any of the oil and differential drain/fill bolts. It is easy to strip the threaded hole out when a steel bolt is threaded into an aluminum alloy or magnesium housing, as is the case here. Better yet buy yourself a torque wrench even if it is a cheap one, you'll use it for other bolts on your ATV.

If your not familiar with how little pressure it takes to tighten a 10mm bolt head to 7.5 ft. lbs. or even 10 ft. lbs. you'll be surprised at how it is going to seem not tight enough to you.

X2 on all the info given by those guys on changing the diff fluids... No idea on service cost around here, sorry, but that sounds high to me!

EDIT: I dunno, maybe that's what it's worth. I've just always worked on my own machines, so any labor cost sounds expensive to me lol.

My 20hr service was $306!!!!!!! The only reason I had them even do it was because I miss read my bill of sale, thought it was included.
If I can help it they will never see the bike again.

Is it identical to a pump that you use the change the lower unit oil in an outboard motor? I have a pump for that..

There's a dealer hear in Nova Scotia that is offing free oil changes for life on their Suzuki King quads.. However!!! There also offering a free winch, heated grips, bumpers, hand guards, plow, and get this, a free 4x8 utility trailer and a 5 year extended warranty. All you have to do is ..... Take the $39/week financing for 10 years. Yep you're right.. That's $20280 for a 750 king.. Hahaha.. But free oil changes.. What a deal..
In his defense, he said you can buy out be payment at time. Buy out is for a value of $15000...

Yeah if you can avoid going to a shop , do it... always cheaper to do it yourself or find a riding buddy to help or do it. A buddy will be cheaper than any dealer???

Do the first service yourself screw the dealer , my dealer actually said for me to do the service . As for checking the valves its super easy I have checked my twice and both times they were in spec thus I'v never needed to adjust them yet . I would tho change out the factory diff plugs to hex bolts , I went with Gold Plugs .
