There are a lot of posts on here that report dealers not working on any bike over 10 years old. You are the best mechanic for your bike. That way, you know what is in it, and how it's been done. Just keep doing what you are doing.:waving:
LMAO. I feel better about my set of tools already!Yes they do need too many special tools they normally do not have on hand.
Sure they have sockets and wrenches, but they also need brains and that's the main tool they do not have and do not know where to find any!
It's like I bought a tire online with free shipping for $100, they want $200 at dealer for same tire!
I mounted mine free myself, they want about $100 to mount it.
They think I should pay that $300 to them to save myself 2 hours of work at cost of $200 savings! NO BRAINS!
The only time in my life I made $100 an hour is when I can do my own work in 2 hours and save $200 that the stealer would have charge me! LOL
At least my local stealer would work on my bike for some things if I wanted to be ripped off bad enough to pay the lung and kidney to have the work done.
Heck they charged me $65 for a stupid estimate for my damaged 88! Yes estimate was stupid! $1500 for new radio when it was only a $50 door broke for cassette player LOL
$10K on an 88 for repairs LOL
so I checked in with another local winger and he told me they have a tech trained only on 1800. Is this even permitted for a dealer?
All this... makes me laugh out loud. (or if you're Asian: ROR... "Raffing Out Roud!")New Dealer w/ fresh recruits maybe.
Scrounged from the Internet:
"... There is no sanctioning body that certifies motorcycle mechanics. , new or not...
