Splines et al...

Howdy all, had the splines checked and relubed, coolant changed and the R/R relocated (had Bulldogs kit) all for $108 - not bad.

He said the splines were lubed and the rear looked brand new, no wear.

If you're in NJ the place was John's Cycle Repair on RT 22E Whitehouse

It`s good to hear you`re all ready to mount up and ride. Now if only the weather will co-operate.

I don't have a garage to work on my bike. Does anyone know where I can get this kind of deal near Portland, OR?

Hey cglenn, I got a garage here that actually has lots of space in it. Don't know if 2,863 miles is too far for you though.

Hiker, I get all the work I can't do myself at John's. He's the only guy I trust with my bike.

If you live in Central Jersey you really should check him out.

Yea, I'm a believer that's for sure. If I would have had it done anywhere else, it would have cost 2-3x as much. Don't know how he does it. But, it's kinda a throw back to a different era, at least here in NJ. Almost like a Bradley Gardens, Bridgewater sort of thing. BG in Somerset County is like going back in time to the 1050s Cobb County Georgia. This old, interminably crowded, dirty place with its yesteryear pricing is a godsend considering I'm 7 miles away.

The downside is he can't store the bike and as such, he has to get em in and done then out the same day. His hours are kind of unpredictable too.
