    I just called my local HD dealer for prices on some parts. I have 30,000 miles on my 05 EGS, and so I decide I was going to do the service myself. I figured I would go ahead and change the Brake Pads also. Front and rear.

    The list consited of:
    O-rings for the drain plugs
    Front and Rear Pads
    Air Filter
    Oil Filter
    2 Spark Plugs
    Derby and Primary Chain Inspection gaskets
    I over 180.00 Dollars.

    That does not include the Oils yet. Man is that about right? Should I be looking some place else? I figure if I got the Amsoil 20W50 and the Spector Trans fluid and Primary Chain fluid. It will be over 200.00 dollars for all that stuff. :newsmile038:

    No I didn't get free coffee or doughnuts. I did get this slippery feeling on my back side though. Still trying to figure that one out. I wonder if I sat on something. Thing is I didn't feel it until I took out the wallet. Is that normal? :(

    How about a "break-down" on what they were charging per item???? What kind of brake pads , I'm guessing it was HD filters??

    Yeah, you should be looking somewhere else or doing the work yourself. HD dealers are cutting their own throats but theres a month long wait for anything at the local dealer. Go Figure.

    Tell me about it.
    Total cost for me was $1049.00 ...I kid you not ..Still have the bill at home.
    I removed both rims off the bike and handed then to the HD dealer.

    This is what they done:

    Put on 2 new Mezelers (standard) tires.
    Replaced front and rear bearings, with grease.
    Replaced both nipples
    Balanced both tires

    I cant imagine what they would have charged if I brought in the bike and charged the extra labour to mount both tires.

    This is why I wish I would have found this site and read some of these posts before I bought my bike. I would have bought a Mustang intead. the bad thing is; that three our labor is probably "book time" actual time is probably half of that. Maybe!
