15,000 Mile Service Cost
Be prepared to either 1) bend over at the 15k mark. The damage from Ducati Newport Beach was $1898.
The entire bike has to be disassembled to get at the valves, requiring 16 hours of labor. The valves were all within spec, too....which is good, but also means the major service wasn't even required.
Maintenance intervals might be 2x what they are on the 1098/1198, but the cost is 2x as much.
