Hey Guys, Sorry I know it's been discussed before but I took a quick look through some older posts and couldn't find anything about mechanics in my area. I have to have my first service next week (1000kms) and when I asked the dealer they quoted $350. I spoke to my old mechanic (who's a motorbike nut ) up in the Blue Mountains and he said it shouldn't be nearly that much but I can't get up to visit him for a few weeks (which means I wouldn't be able to ride til then ) So my question is... does anyone have any recommendations around Gladesville? Is it better to go to the dealer even if it's more expensive by 200%, or are they just going to be apprentices anyway? Would it be better to go to a mechanic? I want to ride to Canberra next weekend to do a ride with my brother and can't go if I don't get the service in the meantime.
