Looking for somewhere with some RVF400 experience..

  1. Hi guys,

    Looking at putting my RVF400 in for a major and possibly some engine work/jetkit changing. Have been ringing around and getting a few quotes but am really not sure what shop I want to take her into.

    I bought the bike about 2 months ago, and unfortunately didn't come with much/any service history. Had it looked over mechanically and all was good, and was the best I'd seen out of 10-15 I'd looked at previously. Anyway, without having the service history I really want to have a major done just for peace of mind. Being a mechanical novice I can't do much myself, nor do I have the time.

    Anyway, anyone with RVF's that take their bike to a certain place or have known people with RVF's that rave about certain places I'd love to know. I'm not too fussed on cost I just want the best job done possible.

    Rougly I've been quoted around $600-$900 for a major (a couple included valve clearances some didn't), from a few different places including Madbiker in Ferntree Gully, Dynoverks in Boronia and Dynobike in Moorabin. 60 Degrees didn't want to know about a grey import. I'm going to get a quote from Everything 2 Wheels tomorrow hopefully if they're open saturdays.

    Eyes and ears very much open to advice.
