A few weeks back I brought a CBR 600 F2, used via Ebay. A good buy and I'm really happy with it - I wanted it serviced and checked over before I did any good riding so I took it to a very well known and recommended workshop in Sydney. I explained at length with the owner my riding history, the bikes history and what I wanted done from the service especially down to what I wanted to spend exactly $700 and asked for them to call me if it was to go over $700. I figured I didn't spend much on the bike and therefore didnt want to invest too much either but still wanted it safe & reliable. I dropped the bike around first thing Monday morning. We discussed replacement of the bar grips, chain, potential cam chain (as there was noise) and investigation into the brakes and forks as well as the major service stuff (clearances, fluids etc) I call on Wed, and am told the bike isn't ready and needs a rocker cover gasket. I wait and call late Thursday and am told they are still waiting on the gasket and then Friday as well - still no joy. The bike sleeps over the weekend. I give them a buzz on Monday and told them that I need the bike for transport Monday afternoon (6 when they close) and to have it ready as I have uni classes. I arrive at 6.15, bike is not ready. I sit around and wait till 7.15 when finally its ready.... The gasket didnt come in, but they charged me for it anyway as I needed the bike. Its spend 6 days there now... I get the bill, the usual items were done and im told the clearances needed attention and the new cam chain, total bill $950. The invoice states that the forks were not attended to (although they told me they did do them, they just didnt charge me for them) , the chain was not replaced and the grips were not replaced. $250 more, no calls about the extra increase, half the stuff I wanted/we discussed wasn't done and it took 6 DAYS!!!! I missed my uni class and sat around for 1hr 15mins whilst they worked on it still.. I stomached the bill and got over it and walked away. The bike sounded MUCH better and went great. Well, until the next set of lights when smoke was pissing out everywhere but I figured this was oil from around the headgasket that was burning off (I was told the gasket is ok, and I can get a fair bit more life outta it.. umm so why replace it). I took the bike to get new grips at another service shop and got them to check the gasket - they said its fine and doesnt require replacement! Yesterday... about a week later I wash the bike. Im paying attention to the brakes, chain etc when I notice the rear brake is as loose as a thai hooker. WHAT THE F?! This aint 'i forgot to tighten a bolt loose' it was apparently loose due to wear. I took it to Procycles that day as its near my house and they tighened the bolts but said this SHOULD HAVE been looked at in my Major Service. Its freaking dangerous and I was so angry.. So, here i am. $950 poorer, rear back break that needs mounts or replacement, i had to go buy new grips myself, chain is still worse for wear and I dont even know if they looked at my brakes in the service (fluid maybe!? who knows, invoice doesnt state it) What do I do? I'm pissed off. Build a bridge and get over it or???
