Approximately $20 for supplies (oil, filter, washer) and however much value you place on your time... took me about 20 minutes, but it was my first time doing it.

Probably gonna cost more if you have someone else do it.

mmm, you need to be aware of this:

Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
The Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act is a United States federal law,. Enacted in 1975, it is the federal statute that governs warranties on consumer products. The law does not require any product to have a warranty but if it does have a warranty the warranty must comply with this law. The law was created to fix problems as a result of manufacturers using disclaimers on warranties in an unfair or misleading manner.

Basically, if you document (receipts and photos) that you did the work, they have to honor the warranty. The law was enacted to keep dealerships from claiming that if they did not do the service work, the warranty was null and void.

Wow. Clearly you are so much cheaper in the US than the U.K. Despite the fact we do need to have a dealer do the service to maintain the warranty, even if I did it myself it would still cost around £60 for the oil and filters. I think that's around $90?

Add that to the £5400 (around $7100) the bike costs compared to US around $5200?

Then there's the fuel at around $8 a gallon......

The quote from the Honda Dealer where I purchased my Rebel was $140.00 for the first service including, disposal fees, shop supplies, 3 qts. of oil, oil filter and taxes.

I did it my self for less than $40.00.

If it is your first time on the Rebel 500 Honda has a kit that has the filter and a filter wrench in it.

My dealer, here in suburban Detroit, quoted my $115 on 600 mile (first) service call.

Are we just talking about replacing the filter and oil? This is so easy and you can get the required oil for about 14 bucks.... I dont see why anybody would ever not change your own bike oil. SO EASY! Takes maybe 20 mins tops and its kinda fun.
