Hey I'm sure not all of us change their own oil and do other work so do you have a favorite shop you go to with reasonable pricing in Vegas area? Thanks

Welcome to Vegas and the forums.

That question will always net you several different answers, so before it jumps, let me ask.......why don't you do your own services and get to know your machine better???

I join on that! I change oil myself and could be a good idea if you learn to do it yourself. Why? I change my oil every time I see my machine not performing as I want, and that’s about 1K miles… not cost effective if done in a shop. Also I use synthetic oil, too expensive. Last, every time you take your bike to a shop; not only you need to wait … but no one will treat that machine with the same respect that you do…. Motorcycle dealers are the best, (my opinion) but they are not nearly as friendly as car deals… or experienced…meaning the best are junk. Don’t ever buy a service plan… they are no worth the paper they’re written on.

If your are not going to change your own oil, I suggest "Racers Edge". It's located at 3021 S. Valley View LV.,NV.89102 Dale Kieffer is the owner/racer and Fred or Bobby will take care of your bike. I have seen people come in and have their oil changed and gone in about 45 min.- 1 hr..They will also let you know if anything else is wrong with your bike if they spot it.
Yeah, welcome also.

Buy the stuff. (OEM filter, crush washer, and the appropriate amount of moto oil) Post up an oil question if you want a gazillion different opinions on oil types, dino vs. synthetic, etc...

Post up that you need help with an oil change. There's a 99% chance that someone here will gladly help you change your oil. Especially since you've got a nekkid bike...those are a piece of cake.

I see everyone's point, and Im a DIY kinda guy as well. Oil change is no big deal to me.

But what do you guys think about the first break-in-period tune up??? I just landed the first 600 miles on my CBR600RR, and Im supose to take it in for the 600 oil change and tune up. I bought the bike in cali, so Im not sure which honda cycle dealership or moto performance shop to take it for service....

Any sugguestions? Carters? LV Honda? Racers Edge?

Hey thanks for all the answers, the reason I don't change my oil now, I made a website for this new shop in Minneapolis (www.excaliburmotorsports.com) and this dude did all this work on my bike for free including free syntetic oil and filter:) but now I guess I gotta do it on my own. I am pretty DIY myself, I do all my work on the car but I just don't have the tools to do anything on the bike, and I always like to have somebody around to tell me if I'm doing something right or wrong, somebody that knows better than me. I'll e-mail the dude that offered help and a lift, I can't remember the username now but yea that's nice of ya.
