Hey guys, new member here seeking for some insight.
I have a 2003 SV650S, 44,000 kilometres on there. It's been kept and maintained pretty well. I took it to Modern Motorcycling recently to do the general check up, give it a clean bill of health as well as put in lowering links to lower it a inch and a half so my girlfriend can fit on there comfortably too.
When I take it back from Modern, the guy working there said he loved my bike and asked me to consider selling them my bike. I told them I liked my bike too much to sell right now. Anyways, they gave my bike a clean bill of health and I'm on my way.
After I rode it home, it was in my garage for a week before I took it out again. After 30 minutes of city riding, my gearbox jams and I'm stuck in 3rd. Tried power shifting, really pushing the lever around... but nothing. I couldn't get it to change gears. I limped it back to Modern Motorcycling and now they tell me that I broke the gearbox/tranny somehow, it'll cost SEVERAL THOUSAND DOLLARS to fix, and I should consider selling them the bike.
Now, that seemed awfully fishy to me...
Any insight would be most appreciated about what might have happened to my bike, how much it should cost to fix, or if this bike shop is just trying to screw me and low ball me to hell.
