Depends on the a few factors imo the year of bike ,mileage , if it has a full main dealer history and you want to keep it that way ,
Sometimes you'd be surprised at the cost differential it might not be as much as you'd expect from main dealer .
I'm sure there non Francis's mechanics in north dublin but they may not have the equipment to reset service light for example or keep the book stamped fbsh.

If it's under warranty, definitely go for the official dealer. Otherwise, the bike is just another bike and can be serviced by anyone that knows what they're doing.

Having said that, ring them and ask for pricing and what exactly do they do. It could be a little bit more expensive but then again, sometimes they do go the extra mile and check/replace a few more things...

When we bought the wife's cage second hand it came with warranty from the dealer and the service was a few bobs more expensive but the service did include fuel filter, air filter, overall inspection with a nice little report attached and even detailed, so not just your classic oil and filter change.

Joe Duffys,
I'm dealing with them years and find the whole team very good ,
I took a uk bike in , in 2016 still under warranty and they did a lot of work on it free all under warranty no problem .

Over the years I have had some work carried out under goodwill gesture .

they can be busy due to looking after the Garda and Paramidic bikes

I would recommend them no problem

+1 for Joe a Duffy. The service my K1200S all the time. Excellent service and the price is about the same as anywhere else. Always very helpful and tell you the price in advance.

Wouldn’t go anywhere else myself. You
