Did they use a torque wrench on you oil drain plug?Lakota;289168 wrote: I'm having mt cb500x serviced tomorrow in Chiang Mai. I had heard that was the price 3200 baht. at first I was alarmed but I've now got used to price.
did you see what they did during the service ? . I'm going to camp out in the service bay ;-)
I believe they put synthetic Oil in , 3 litres of the stuff and it's good for 12,000 Kilometers . still steep for a first service though
If I understand you correctly, they changed the oil but not the filter?! How odd... What's up with that?!Lakota;289252 wrote: Mines "Clunkly" with the G3 Too. I would be interested to know what Oil it had in delivered from the factory. I suspect and hope normal 4T not some special running in Oil or something.
I keep labouring the point and it will be a pain for you Thai Appologists but my bikes running around with about a third of a Litre of the original Oil out of the Original Oil Filter (nice place to get your used Oil) so the new 2.5 litre of nice synthetic gets mixed with this Shite and was a complete waste of time. Given the choice I would have taken my chances without the OIl Change. mai pen Lie I hear you say :smile1:
It should be a Capital offence

Had bad experience with Barcelona regarding my K1200LT !! ... Ride Safe :
Sorry my s/book in Thai too, however.. page 15.. 7 down, I= inspection ... P.S. The only thing in Thai is the price :-(Lakota;289340 wrote: There was definately no valve check at 1000k on my bike. I'm not even sure they checked the Air filter. from what I can see on the bill the labour was only a few hundred baht. Almost all the cost goes for the synthetic Oil, and then they mix it with some shite out of the old Oil Filter.
I'm still Livid. it's not as though I'm anal about my bikes but this is wrong on every level. makes my blood Boil .
It's good to smile you say, there'll be no smiles from me in that place ever, bunch of Cowboys or worse
Do you have a service book in english ?
Really? Perhaps you could help us all out and provide us with the link you found from that search. :-|Changnoi1;289367 wrote: A simple google will find you the service-manual in English .... the bikes are sold world-wide.

Think the Honda CB500 service manual is not available for the private owner yet........
So, not so "simple" as you stated then? I prefer to see posts stating facts not guesses.Changnoi1;289403 wrote: I did google and I found that on http://www.motorcycle.in.th/filemgmt/index.php is at least something that looks like it is the owners manual of the CBR500R and the CB500F. Must say indeed I did not (yet) find the service manual. I thought that somewhere on the Honda (Japanese) is an section where you can buy all manuals?
I do think it is highly unlikely that Honda designs & produces a motorbike with intention to sell it worldwide and does not have the owners & service manuals in English (and other languages) BEFORE they start selling the motorbikes. Actually most times the manuals are about 6 months older as the official production date of the motorbike.
