Which service GX?

It's the 30k service.
Brakes, oils and filters and belt I do myself.

I know Maz is highly recommended but living south of the Thames I was hoping for somewhere more local - assuming i take the most direct route it's 230 miles each way to Dunkinfield along the worst motorways in the UK.



30k nice one!

Yeah Dukinfield is about the same for me too give or take. That's a big service, maybe a few days labour so after you've factored in the more than reasonable rate (£40ph) and van hire from Enterprise (£30 x 2 days, for a comfy new transit) tank of diesel x 2... You're still up on HD £100ph, an independent on my old bike receipts in London was charging £80ph too

Amazingly, he charges cost for parts too... plus you'll get the best workmanship on your machine this side of East Troy (signed off by Erik himself, see at reception)

The motorway aint too bad GX...I've been up there probably 7 or 8 times the last 2 or 3 years, just time it right. The café across from the Emporium does a good full English for a fiver while you wait for the workshop to open.

I am due for another 10k this year, I need my touring Buell to be extra reliable on the big trips so I'll be going to Dukinfield.

Hope this helps.


:yt: you won't regret it :idea:

Nice one Pete. Did you get the 10k service?

If so, how do they do this, out of interest?:

Wheel,Steering Head and Swingarm bearings inspected,
adjusted and lubricated.


Its on the list for bits done on the 10k
