Annual service

Has anyone taken their bike in for the annual service! The light came on, brought it in and was astonished at the cost. They said they changed the oil, a process that counted for 4 hours of labour. They did some software updates as well. When asked they stated it had to be done to maintain the warranty. I could change my own oil! If anyone has a service manual and would like to enlighten me with the services needed to be done it would be appreciated. I asked, and it sounded like an oil change and software update, not even a change of brake or clutch fluids. Again, I could do this but they said it was only a top up. Crazy!

The first annual service (7500miles) for the V4 should be 2hours (20 Labor Units) plus oil, filter, washer. Unless it requires a Desmo intervention (7hr 36mins or 76 labor units). But yes your 7500 mile service is just an oil change plus a bunch of look over on the bike. I will try and get the actual work checklist if I can find it. As for the hours, Ducati transparent maintenance chart clearly lists how long all services are for each bike so as long as you go to a dealer they should quote you the appropriate hours (then multiply by the shops hourly rate). Total cost for the 7500mile initial annual service is usually around $300-$350; I suggest bringing your own oil to save a couple bucks.
