It’s two hours for a mi­nor ser­vice – change lu­bri­cants, check and ad­just brakes, clean the con­denser. and three hours for full, with all oils changed. More modern bikes are even more eco­nom­i­cal: change en­gine oil and fil­ter, and check chain, brakes and tyres. An hour for a small ser­vice: £120. There’s no ser­vic­ing that re­quires the en­gine out. Half of our early bike own­ers ser­vice their ma­chines them­selves, so don’t let that put you off a se­cond hand bike.
