That's cheap for a belt change, tbh. It's a bitch trying to get the damn vertical cover off with the tank lifted when I did it myself. But do they do valve check as well?
I have yet to do it on my 1098S as I got it late last year and the previous owner did them in 2012 a few K miles ago. However, on my Sport Classic it is easy. CACycleWorks has great videos on youtube that walk you through it. I can see removing the covers on the 1098 being a bit more work, but once you get it there, it's the same principle.I watched their Youtube videos, & it didn't seem too bad. Some on the forum have doen it themselves, but I still don't trust myself enough though. I'll go ahead an watch a few more times to see if I can get brave enough.
I don't know how many hours it took me but it was over 4 weeks lol I went really slow...I bought the belts and the local Duc shop checked over the valves, changed the plugs and belts in 4.25hrs.
It was over the winter I was in no hurry and did some cleaning :ahhh:Weeellll I think it's one of them jobs where taking the time to learn is a good thing. 4 weeks is a bit long but I bet you cut that time in half next servicing!!
