cost of 685 kit installed

At the ripe old age of 68 I am slightly mechanically challenged and am wondering what I can expect to pay for the total cost of the installation of a 685 or 688 kit installed at my local dealer at 65.00 an hour.I would appreciate any feedback,thanks.

My guess would be around $750. kit=$250 bore/hone=$200 and $300=Time and materials.

Did you check with them on an est?

great info!

Thanks for the info.I haven't checked with the dealer yet because I live in the Dominican Republic most of the year.I am however going home tomorrow and I will ask then.By the way why would they ship a jug that wasn't bored out? I thought most big bore kits were road ready without any additional work.Thanks again .

The 685 kit uses the same cylinder/liner as stock. it's just bored and honed. The 705 kits has a new cylinder liner, but uses the same jug (more cash for pressing out old liner and opening up the cooling passages then pressing the liner in.
