 wondering about yearly service cost on the Suzuki 140, and what people are paying around the country.  I have a 2016 and costs between 2016 and now have gone from a low of $550 to cost of $950.  $950 seems excessive.

I would love to see how long it takes to do that service and what they actually do.

Expensive yes, but probably not excessive. My final selling-it-do-everything service on a 150 Suzuki 2 years ago came to $1400 - included a new water pump housing & kit which was 400+I can pm you the link to the detailed invoice if you want.

with labour charge out rates increasing so much - apprentice being sold at $100+ p/hour?!, more and more things like servicing your own car or boat yourself makes a lot of financial sense -esp. with the ability to parallel import parts from overseas at the same or less than dealers sell to you.

I did a service on my bike recently, not that long after an initial/break-in service from the main Yamaha dealer locally, only to find after spending $500-odd dollars with them, no crush washer had been installed on sump plug, the bolt so tight I had to use a breaker bar to crack it off and a damaged or perhaps re-used o-ring on a filter facing plate...

it was another personal reminder that you are quite capable of doing it cheaper, fast and better yourself sometimes

No disintegrations!

Agree , servicing once "out of warranty" is not that hard ! More need to try and learn..saves a bunch of $$.

Fairly sure my service cost last time was over the 1k Suzuki 140.

I think I paid close to 400 for service kit, gear and engine oil, impeller, anodes, spark plugs, O rings, gaskets etc etc. Takes me about 5hrs just doing one thing at a time( mainly so I don't miss or forget to do something!!!!), There is plenty of information online for servicing, and to be honest, its a very simple job, as long as you're careful and don't strip or break anything.
Leaves a lot of money left on the table for gas, beer, or a shiny new piece of equipment.

Note, mine is a 90hp suzi

I’ve got a Suzuki 2019 DF140 and am considering servicing myself once out of warranty. Past services have been between $600 - $900.
Terrafish - where do you get your parts from?

Oh what a smasher - two eggs and a rasher!

I'm sure any Suziki Dealer will sell you the Kits tho, just don't forget to get the gear and engine oil.

And if your water pump impellor has still got nice firm blades then re-use it and if the pump housing is not showing wear then don't change it. Put these parts aside till they are actually needed.   They are the most expensive parts and often don't need doing. If you beach launch often, then these will need more regular replacement as the sand does what sand does so well!!!!!

Thanks Terrafish, had a look at the kits online so once out of warranty I think I’ll do it myself.

Just remember to put anti seize on everything. Then put a bit of CRC Soft seal over the whole thing or at least the parts you have replaced. This will help reduce corrosion significantly.

Spark plugs are often very expensive (or at least they are on my Honda), so wait for a sale at super cheap and buy them. They don't go off it the draw- Ha.
