Hi guys,

my bike was serviced at 417miles, which is when i took delivery of it (ex demo bike) and its now at 2800 and due its service. I have been quoted at £125 for it ($197.43) its at an official Honda Bike Dealer, in email exchange he told me -

"I wouldn’t worry about Valve adjustments on the PCX until you start getting it into very high mileage."

my previous scoot was about £100 to be serviced, is this about right for the PCX?

thanks guys,

£125 from a main Honda dealer is about right.

The subject of what oil to use in a PCX, and what is not needed (MB Moly for instance) deserves a 'sticky' or such or a place in the FAQ on it's own with a chart or 'best knowledge to date' section and new users guided there. I was one of those people asking about oil - more than once - and gained the knowledge the owners manual is wrong (Honda stick MB rated oil in but it is not needed for a dry clutch and not easily obtainable in Europe anyway and not many if any dealers even stock it). Many dealers stick any good part or fully synth 4-stroke oil in and the PCX runs fine.

So the after 16 model requires more frequent oil changes?

Oil changes more frequent (wonder why) but spark plug and air filter less frequent (not checked all things). Strange.
