    Should i go to the dealer for the 1st service?

    Hey guys, Long time no post! took delivery of 12 GTR215 last spring and she just has under 24hrs on her. I broke her out of storage and got her fired up but i know i need to still do the "1st" service @25hrs.

    Is it worth it? dealer is quoting $546 because shes "supercharged" But after reading around all it is basically an oilchange and visual inspection. Ive alsobeen so busy the last couple months today was the 1st day i had to pull the ski's out and de-winterize them, 2 dealers are quoting me late june for the appointment thats basically half my season gone...

    Can i just do the first maintenance myself? i have done a few oil changes on my GTI130

    Thanks!

    Do it yourself.

    That is a lot of $$$$$ for basically doing a oil change and looking at some hoses.

    In my experience, NO. I paid $300 for an oil change, which was 3/4 a quart overfilled btw. i intentionally left some clamps loose to see if they checked them all as they swear they do and they did not. Also recommended a wear ring replacement at 10 hours. It was/is in perfect condition...

    Buy an oil change kit online for $80 including the pump and do it yourself.

    I was charged 370 and they overfilled the oil. I did it for warranty reasons but will be doing my own maintenance from here on out.

    You'll need a good oil extractor to suck out the oil if you've never done it. There's no oil drain like in cars etc.

    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=864 is what I use and it works great.

    Do it yourself. With the help from members here, you'll save yourself a ton of money over the life of your ski. You'll also know it has been done right.
