Recommend a mechanic/garage?

Postby JimZXR » Thu Oct 03, 2013 12:12 am

I'm hoping to get the seals done in my front forks (ZX7R) and have been given drastically different prices by three places so far ($200-$450) so am looking for a recommendation in the Sydney area, ideally inner West, to have the work done.

Would like to get best price/service I can and best price so far has been Sydney Motorcycle Wreckers in Alexandria for $200.

Allfixed.

But if you don't want to go that far. Try Zenodamper. He's a suspension guru at Lidcombe

The way I see it you get what you pay for :roll:

May not be the cheapest, but the best quality work and advice would have to be Glenn at ALLFIXED

Cheers

Thread revival.

I want to get my valve clearances done, my timing chain checked and my head resealed on my '06 ZX-10R.
I hate being ripped off.
I want the dream.
I am looking for a top little 1-3 man shop that does what needs to be done and does quality work without fucking other things up or falsely claiming more work needs to be done, someone who actually takes pride in their work to take my engine to.

Is Allfixed the place for me?
When I was in Newcastle, The MC Doctor was such a place but that's in Newcastle.

Thank you in advance.

You're taking ONLY the engine?

I'm no mechanic, but I know if a customer brought a complex machine to me (I work with machines) but I couldn't run it before hand or test and commission it afterwards I would be telling them I can't guarantee my work because it's an unknown quantity.

There's A LOT of positive feedback for Allfixed on here, and it's very easy to search too, sounds like you're after some sort of guarantee from us or the universe :?

Here's a valve clearance job:

You certainly won't get ripped of at Allfixed, Glen is very honest, but engines are engines and who knows whats inside..:-)
