A "2" was mistakenly added in the front "70". This makes sense considering:
$20 for fluid.
$50 for about an hour labor.
Total = $70. That makes sense.
Accidentally add the digit "2" in the front and now we have "$270". This accident seems likely to occur.
Before you go in there guns drawn because of what you have read here, please have them verify the dollar amount by breaking down the the cost of fluid and labor.
If they stand by their price, pay for the service if you like, and once you see your bike roll out of the shop explain that you will file a report with the Bureau of Automotive Repair. I was refunded half of what I paid for a carb tuning job gone south due to the help from BAR.
The investigators/case managers that work with you are often former professional mechanics. That dealership can never convince them that a simple brake bleed without complications on a Ducati Monster should cost $270. The investigators are not stupid.
