It should be somewhere around $200. The Potomac Victory Riders are having a meeting there Saturday morning at 11. Stop by and you can get the answer straight from the horses mouth. The website is http://www.pvrmc.org/

***UPDATE*** I received an e-mail stating that the meeting has been postponed due to hurricane Irene. More info will be posted on the website.

Yeah, and even that is ridiculous for just freakin oil and a filter! But definitely much cheaper to just do it yourself.

Not to stir things up again...
But the manual states to have the first service done by a dealer. I am NOT saying it HAS to be done by the dealer; only pointing out what is stated in the owners manual. Personally I had the dealer perform the first service so I didn't have to worry about possbily fighting with the mother ship if I ever needed warranty work in the future. But I can be a worry wart about somethings

Here are two threads that talk about it (one from TheVOG.net so I hope I am not breaking any rules posting it here )

I realized that the manual states that you should take the bike to the dealership but simply I trust myself more than I trust the techs at the locar dealer. Servicing the bike myself is a part of me getting to know my new bike for me. And I also know that Victory can't void my warrenty as long as the work was done properly. But I totally understand that most people feel more comfortable taking their bikes to the dealer and that is fine. Obviously if I ever have to fight Ma Vic with warrenty work it may be more of a hassle for me.

Default Get your $'s worth

I recommend taking it to the dealer too. They don't just change your oil. The 500 mile service is when the dealer goes over the bike to make sure the wheels are tracking correctly and the belt is not wearing prematurely. They also check your brakes and top off the fluid if needed. They go overall the nuts, bolts and fittings to make sure they are still tight. It was well worth the $60 my dealer charged me.
