    Mine were fine as well as many others I have heard. I;ve also heard of a few who did need minor adjustments, not many, but a few.

    Dealers make a lot of money on service, and they quote all different prices because many "add" this or that to the service. I would expect to pay $500-$600 for a valve clearance check. And once you've had one done I'd reconsider having another done until you pile on a lot of miles. 18k interval is a too soon if you ask me.

    With that engine, you don't want to be wrong.

    I asked the dealer I purchased my K1600 B from what the 18,000 mile service would cost. They looked it up and said around $500...... Plus parts! The parts and labor would get the total closer to $800.00 Spark plugs are $26.00 each times 6.

    Probably more if the valves have to be adjusted. I heard 800 just for that.

    Not an overly complicated check. If you have a decent set of tools and service manual it will take about 3-4 hours to complete. There's also a couple of decent videos on youtube showing how to check the valves. You can now get the plugs from NAPA, etc for about $11 each.
