Hels, you’re a good lass with a heart of gold but WTF are you thinking!?!?
He totally screwed you around and ripped you off whilst still owing you money and here you are pointing work his way!?
Id NEVER use him again!
When he did my gsr engine swap he lost some bolts and fitted different bolts on the tank bracket. So 1 of the 4 were different sizes and he didn’t tell me. Then he used the relatively new engine oil from my old motor which had a destroyed gearbox to fill the new motor. Admittedly I asked him to do this but he didn’t tell me it was a crap idea. I didn’t know much about bike mechanics back then so knew no better.
Let me see… Oil with potential metal swarm in it from a bust motor into a new motor which cost me £800 to buy and fit.
I was given a right dressing down by Matt and got made to change that oil pronto. A decent mechanic would have told me to get stuffed.
He might know his way around a bike but his quality and customer care is apalling!
Thanks Nich, I tried the Biggin Hill outfit for something a while back but got no response to a couple of messages so left it.
Will look up R&P and Mark Holden. Thanks Jaime and fatkat.
Apparently, there is a guy working out of the garages behind Powertune in Coney Hall but a bit of an unknown quantity (to me) so your suggestions are gratefully received.
Shame about Adz as he used to be the go-to guy here.
Thanks for the heads up about Linkway Makman - your strength of feeling has swayed me. Chris is very local to me but doesn’t normally do pick up and drop off so probably out of the equation for this one anyway.
Yes! Thanks for that I was trying to remember that one 'coz I know you have mentioned him to me before.
The new job is still in the honeymoon period but after 11 years(!) in one place it is like a breath of fresh air…
I agree - these guys are awesome - I use them for any odd-jobs and MOTs. Not sure if the can collect the bike, but they’ve done a few things for me in the past without even wanting payment (fitting a master cylinder, letting me use their air-bleeder, undoing stuck nuts).
