Touring from Brisbane to S.A with a stop over in Melb on the way. Prior to departure the bike started playing up so took it to Redline Motorcycles in Dandenong. The owner Tristan advised me it would need a major service inc replacement of all fluids as it was almost due & also recommended hiflow air filter & a dyno run to get it purring nicely again. So anyway after a week of waiting, nearly 2K spent on the job & an unplanned extra week of motel expenditure i was finally on my way. Made it to within 20km of Adelaide when the bike started playing up again & over heating with warning lights going off everywhere. Pulled over to find no water in the reservoir & oil leaking at a steady rate from the sump bolt that was only just hanging on by a thread. Had to call RACV to come & tow the bike to the nearest bike shop. A few days later i get a call telling me the bike was critical. Aside from the other issues, i was told the valve clearances were way out, there was only barely any water (no coolant at all) in the radiator, a blocked air filter & also a blown head gasket due to the above issues. The mechanic told me there's no way the air filter had been replaced & also that the radiator may have been flushed through but that's all that would have been done ie: previous mechanic flushed the system but forgot to fill will water & coolant after doing so!! He also highly doubted the bike was ever put on a dyno as the clearances were so out of whack the bike probably would have blown up if a dyno run was attempted. Not happy Jan I rang Redline to complain & was told to 'fcuk off' before being hung up on. Rang back asking to speak to the manager & was again told to 'fcuk off' & hung up on so rang my mate in Melb to ask if he'd go into the shop & see what he could do on my behalf. Well anyway, turns out my mate is very aware of Redline & refuses to take his bike there due to similar issues in the past. He also informed me that Tristan isn't even a qualified mechanic & has a habit of telling customers certain jobs need to be done, goes around the bike with dabs of grease on certain areas of the bike to make it look like it has been worked on, then parks the bike for a few days before telling the customer the bike is ready. Basically the customer pays for jobs not even carried out...... seriously!! He also informed me that Tristan ripped off his former partner & stole literally every cent she had when she left him, ripped off her brother & her mother too who had also loaded him money that was never repaid. Finally my bike was repaired in Adelaide by Peter Stevens (in just 2 days) & it hasn't run that well since she was new. Big thumbs up to Stevos How Redline is still is business aside from stealing other people's money, is totally beyond me.
