    Am I the only one who is stunned by what the dealer charges for maintenance? Or is it maybe just my "local" (or not so local - 1 1/2 hour away) guy?

    Last guy charged me a hundred bucks for an oil...

    Final drive 2011 R12RT

    I've poked around here and there, and the only info I've been able to find on R12RT final drive oil-change intervals said do it every 12k. I think that's too short an interval. Anyone know what's...

    Don't have a clue. It was some time ago. All I have is that picture, which I think is really cool. I assume I can search for Rob. I'll do that and try to contact him.
