My Stebel horn arrived yesterday, so I installed it. This was by no means an easy project. The "extra" or available space on these bikes is quite minimal. Also installed a radiator guard.
Today is going to be a ride. Im thinking about riding around Lake Okeechobee.

Question... Is there any one in South Florida that has a computer and software that can program a key fob?  I went to my local stealership yesterday and ordered a spare one. They charged me full retail for this fob and then they wanted to charge me $8/qt for Kawasaki oil. OUCH! Then the service dept told me that it was a bunch of data input to program the fob and that it would be an hours labor charge. I believe that this was lies! As I walked out of the place shaking my head, from the horrible experience that I just endured at the parts counter and service desk, I told myself that I would NOT give this establishment anymore of my business. I'm thinking that the blonde hair and boobs is a signal to salespeople that I am an idiot?

sailor chic...$8 a qt is about what i pay at autozone for syn motorcycle oil, which i believe is average. As for the FOB, most likely a 15 minute job but they are going to charge you a full hour regardless. My wife took her car to caddilac for brakes, they told her $620 and a half day! I did them for $117 in parts and took less than an hour. But i am not paying for a building or staff like they do as they are a business.

The quote for oil was for non-synthetic type. If it was syn, I would understand the price.

Riding around the lake will be about a 200 mile ride for me. I do it a few times a year. I running out of places to ride in this part of Florida, so I have to repeat my day trips

Pictures... I dont want to get banned from here, so I will abstain form posting them. However if you need a visual, I have a big chest.

A dealer can of course charge whatever it wants for services rendered. That said, it seems pretty common that programming a bike to recognize a new fob or TPS sensor a fee of 1/2 hour labor is used. A full hour does seem to be a bit too much to me also.

I do not know how much it happens now but back a while, it was also common for dealers to have to fumble through their first few uses of KDS to program bikes- a reasonable dealer will NOT try to charge a customer for their learning curve. That is on them IMO.

Why would you be banned for posting a pic?  ???

There's a spot for that sort of thing you know?

 ;D   My reputation precedes me?  I certainly hope not.

Rest assured one won't get banned for posting in the wrong place or posting of pictures.  I may cut off a head or two, but banning....not so much.

That is high for a qt of dino oil.   I thought it was a longer distance around the lake, but havent been there in over 50 years, now. 
As far as it goes, ALL men become idiots in the presence of big (or even small) chests.  We can't help it...Just messin' with ya.
