1992 Vulcan 750
I recently took my VN750 to a local mechanic for some maintenance (sadly, a battery check was not part of the deal, as I found out last Sunday). Anyway, I told them that I'd do the oil myself when they said it would be $100 in parts and labor ($82/hour) for the oil change. On my end, it cost me about $20 for oil and filter, plus an hour or so to do the change.
Some just like doing this themselves and find satisfaction in doing it. Is there a cost savings to doing your own oil change? If so how much?
