So I was wondering if I should have purchased the extended service plan (Y.E.S.) I took it in yesterday for the 10 hour service. The final bill was $422.29 and nothing out of pocket as it was covered in the plan, yes I paid for it or I will in the long run but with that plan in affect it will help my pocket and the resale! If you're thinking of buying a Viking or wolverine GET the plan!

That is all!

Two pages of items. All fluids in both Diffs, transmission, engine. Spark plug replacement. Air filter replacement, cleaned air box. Checked numerous items. I asked them about the brakes being noises but they said it was normal. :-/

ON the brakes. I greased all moving parts ( minus the pad surface and rotors ) on ours hoping for a quitter ride. It did help around the yard and neighborhood, but after a thrashing this weekend at an off road park.... same old thing, I hear the fix is aftermarket pads.

And just for reference. I just had basically the same service done for 209.00. It was the 20 hour . Was on the fence on the extended warranty myself. ??? Mine has a minor backfire pop when engine braking ( downhill mostly ), not sure if it is normal or vaves are out of spec. Shop said the checked it. Ran into a Wolverine guy this weekend who was complaining of his exhaust glowing cherry red. He explained he had talked to Yamaha in Japan, and they assured him it was normal. As a shade tree mechanic I understand a lean tune is hot on the exhaust side. A clean emission is the same. Burn as much fuel as possible without extra emissions. Growing up in the drag race world I always heard lean is mean, humph. Wish my Viking had 5-10 more hp compared to other track stars.

I'll be doing my 20hr service later this month, and was told by my dealer that it is roughly a 3 hr idea.

I don't have the invoice in front of me but it seemed like I remember seeing that Labor was around 352 bucks. Well no biggee! My world is busy as heck and i don't have the time to do the Maintenance at the moment.

my dealer's labor rate is 99.00 an hour. When I worked on cars for a living labor was 54.00 an hour and I got 17.00 of it. Wow things have changed!

So did you roll your first service into your warranty payment ? I also bought the warranty but I don't remember them saying anything about it covering the charge of the first service ?

The service plan was added to the purchase but it was my understanding that the plan covered EVERYTHING. I got my paperwork out and it did indeed say the 10 hour, 60 hour, 100 and 200 hour services were completely no charge and in deed I paid nothing out of pocket when I picked it up. Again I know I'm paying for it. It's all good.
