$1300 for 12k mile service.

I just talked to the service department at pro italia in glendale and they want $1300 for the 12k mile service. This is for a 2014 daytona 675.
Is this price the norm?
Is there any other shop in socal that will do it for less?

That's steep. How mechanically inclined are you? Before I did everything myself, I'd still do as much as I could then have a shop do the complicated jobs like adjusting valve clearances. That'll get you a big discount. If you have a pickup or trailer, you could also bring in the bike without fairings to save the shop some busywork that'll cost you more than it should.

If you don't mind going to Monrovia, this is where I used to go: http://www.wcgpmoto.com/contact-west-coast-gp-cycles/

su37su,
I do everything but the valve check, throttle body and plugs. If no adjustment is needed, it runs a tad over $200, and add another $100 if valves need shimmed. Everything else is pretty easy/quick to do on these bikes, your quoted amount for a 12,000 service check sounds pretty outlandish to me. For that kind of money ($1,300) they should also service both the shock and the forks, lol.

Way too high. That's about what it costs for a V4 engine and having to adjust every single valve.

Too high. As others have suggested do as much work as you can yourself and leave only the complicated stuff for the shop. I do oil, chain, coolant, and brakes and leave the valves, suspension stuff, and throttle bodies to the shop. Think I saved about 500 on the 24k service that way.

That is about what my local dealer wanted. I did it myself and have no regrets. If you are mechanically inclined I would recommend it. It is adult legos (assuming you dont strip anything)

Haha, I liked this expression. It's not exactly like this because there are many little secrets in most real-world mechanical things but on the whole yes - basically if you can unscrew and screw back a screw or bolt then you're pretty much capable of doing at least half the stuff yourself. Which is worth it given the absurd prices those guys quote. Quoted at hourly rate, these guys make the same as lawyers.

Personally I do chain, oil, coolant, brakes, ECU diagnosing and fiddling (my bike and my laptop have been in love ever since I first made their acquaintance). I also do electrical diagnosing. I leave throttle body, valves and suspension to the mechanic. I would do suspension myself (and it would be very interesting to try my own valving arrangements) but I lack the space.

I have no problem doing the oil/filter,chain, coolant and brakes. I'm not sure if I could trust my self with the valves.
