Hi all, my mechanic of twenty years passed away last year at the age of 49. He was a great and knowledgeable mechanic that I trusted to work on my four motorcycles. He has been gone over a year now and I have still been unable to find a reliable replacement for his knowledge and seasoned abilities. Dealer wants over $1000.00 for a major service that my mechanic would have done for about $400. I will suck it up and go to the dealer this time because I can't do my own valve adjustment. But I will try to do most of my own service unless I can find a reasonable, reliable and competent mechanic.
