Kinell Tim, 18k already, you are enjoying that bike. Be worth 3s/6d by next year with that mileage.

Aha... a long overdue oil thread  :008:

All those prices sound very reasonable when compared with NZ pricing.

On a sort of related note, my KaTooM had its big 18k service today at the Dealer, 496 which is still not cheap, but I can recall Triumph Cheltenham quoting me 6-700 for the 12k on the TS 2 years ago. The difference is I had no qualms doing the servicing meself on the Tiger, I aint gonna chance it on the Orange bike,  while its under warranty anyway.

That's the exact reason I came back to Triumph after a fling with Ducati... Wouldn't now own anything I can't get diags for or service mesen... I'm the only mechanic I trust anyway 😊

Funny thing is though, I can reset the service mileage, date etc on the KTM without any diags, just done through the clock buttons, so no probs when Im out of warranty doing it meself

wow. Big $$ oil. I'm still using Mobil 1 15-50 in my 08, as was recommended by the factory from new. $22 for 5 qts. With over 180k miles on the bike, still doesn't  need any oil added between changes.  :027:

You boys over the pond get paid big money yet get everything so cheap. Is there any downside to living in the US?

Course there are.   They are just different things to the UK.   My Houston colleagues gripe about stuff like their much lower job security and also they get only 10-12 days paid leave per year.   Health insurance comes with the job as part of your salary package, so if youre out of work for any reason, better hope you dont get sick.

On the flip side, salaries are higher, houses are huge and much cheaper (comparing SE England to Houston, so not necessarily true if you were comparing other areas), petrol costs about half as much, and income and sales taxes are very low (although property taxes are much, much more than UK council tax).   Stuff in general is often cheaper.

Upsides and downsides to living in any one of the first-world countries.   Both US and UK offer an excellent standard of living to a large majority of their populations.
