Took my bike in for a service and mot for the first time to this garage. I wanted it fully serviced prior to a trip to the Pyrenees. All in order until I collected the bike. I was informed that the chain would be cleaned , lubed and adjusted as par for the course and all elements adjusted to manufacturers spec. Not sure what manual was looked at but my bike came back with a filthy chain and sprocket (I did a better job at home on the paddock stand and 15 mins elbow grease). The chain had 50mm of slack (manufacturer recommends 20-30mm) and the clutch lever had a 6mm gap (instead of usual 2-3mm). I questioned chain slack and condition and was informed that they never clean the chain prior to lubing. I was asked how the cost of service compared to the cost in Switzerland (where the bike was bought). My answer, these guys are just as expensive as a Swiss mechanic but not as efficient and certainly not the attention to detail I like on my bike. Venture here at your own peril, at 58quid plus VAT per hour I felt extremely disappointed with the results. I will not be going back again.
Took my PCX in for 4000 mile service. Easy friendly staff. Cost was very reasonable. Video review via email was a good idea.Joey was very helpful. Will make these my 1st stop for all servicing and potential new bike sales in future.
