I had the first service done today, exactly five weeks after I picked up the bike. I was slightly dubious about the rumour I had heard about needing to get to 621-odd miles to get the service warning on before taking it in, so that it could then be switched off during the service. However, to avoid having to take it back I got it up to 625 miles, and the service icon did appear somewhere between 621 and 622 miles. The first question I was asked was how many miles I had done, and in subsequent discussion it became clear that it is no myth - however daft it seems, it can't be disabled unless it has already come on.


The bike does feel notably better for the service. It feels a fair bit smoother, and is easier to ride in traffic in the lower gears. I think it is also pulling cleanly from slightly lower revs. Even things like the sidestand feel better - it had been very stiff, but has clearly been lubed during the service.


And I can now use 7000 rpm >:D

The warning light appears at 1000km or 622 miles,and can only be reset if it has appeared-same with my Ducati SF and all others i know.(1098/1198,etc.)

Interesting,that your Scrambler runs smoother now.Did you get a new Software/Map?

About the Service-cost: When i bought mine, the dealer told me,price for 1st Service is 100€.

Honestly, after 1st Service and changing Oil, i would not care about any RPM Limit.All my other Ducs have got "FullThrottle" after the initial Service,
and i never had a Problem with the Engines.

Have fun with your Scrambler!
Cheers

Just the standard service. That's what I was quoted when I asked before I bought the bike.
As with other manufacturers service costs can vary quite a bit between dealer to dealer. I was quoted 160 when I asked upon ordering bike but who knows what they may ask for when time comes.... Luckily i have 3 dealers within an hours drive so maybe I can play em against each other....

I also have three dealers within an hour's drive . . . but they're all part of the same group!

Out of interest I checked the first service price for a Triumph Scrambler from our local dealer. If you buy from them it's parts only, otherwise it's in the same ballpark as the Ducati service.

Paid 138 pounds for the first service at authorized dealer in London. Took about 1-1.30h from they pulled it into the "garage" until it was ready to ride. The cost breakdown was (remembering on the top of my head) 40-60 for oilfilter/oil and some random small bits (lube and similar) and rest for the service guys time.

The service on my Scrambler is due Saturday. Costs: € 0.00
All-in with the purchase price. Is standard at my dealer. Also the delivery costs (some dealers ask about €400,- for it) were for free.
The first service should be free of charge, you buy a brand new bike from them.

I can see more dealers throwing in incentives like that as more people get bikes, with how much more the motorcycle industry and its segments have expanded, it helps.

I will find out this Saturday, They still owe me £60 for fitting my accessories I haven't yet had or been fitted. They can knock that off as will now be fitting them myself when they eventually arrive,
