    I do oil changes on my own when it isn't a major service.

    The tech guys are good - fast service

    I think it cost me 150.00 for my first inspection?

    I've had Carter do the service for my F4i since it was born. I'd rate the service OK, although I consider myself lucky as most of my friends have had unfortunate results such as:
    - dropped bike
    - front tire mounted on rear rim (really!)
    - failure to add oil after oil change

    Also don't like being charged "2hrs" for labour and then seeing my bike finished and ready to go after 45mins!

    Just had new tires put on my bike this past week at Bomax... Great service and good price

    Don't forget when I came out with a new tire and also a warped rear disc...

    Carter service is yucky.

    In my garage. And I trust the mechanic implicitly.........even it he does have to redo his work now and then.......
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    Used to take it to imperial on imperial but it's just too far to go and a hassle for someone to follow me so that I can get a ride back. I started doing the little stuff myself. Although I'm pretty competent, I won't do anything big. The last thing I want going through my mind when doing 200+ is 'did I put the cotter pin in correctly on my front??'
