20,000 mile service dealer experience
« on: October 15, 2015, 09:18:08 am »
Hi All
Justa note on getting my 20,000mile service finally completed. This was due to me working always away and the dealer summertime service rush. Anyway at 22152 the bike went into A1MOTO York. They gave me a T100 bonnie as a loaner.
The bike went in on Monday afternoon so they could work on a cold bike the next morning. late in the Tuesday afternoon I rang to see if it was ready, they were just putting it back together so not to cause any rush they kept the bike until Wednesday lunchtime when I picked it up.
They had done all the required 20,000mile items, gave a copy breakdown of the work carried out.All brake , clutch and coolant fluids changed, Valve checked and adjusted, Throttle bodies balanced, New Spark plugs, Head race and wheel bearing chickened adjusted. Adaptions re set, Checked all outstanding recalls Autoscan replaced one Valve shim.
Copy of of all parts.
Final bill £423.86 + VAT £84.77 total bill including labour and parts £508.63

The mechanic who worked on the bike came thru and gave me a rundown on the work carried out and seemed genuinely interested in his job and was also into racing motorcycles.

I have used A1MOTO for a few years since they set up in York 2000. when I had my Sprint ST 995. (great bike)

All I can add is a very positive and good response and service from my dealer. Lets hope it continues and I get another trouble free 20,000miles. The bike is like an old whiskey it gets better as it gets older. a 2012 Factory launch model with 3000miles on it when I bought it. 3 years ago. In blue  :745:

Going to the Bike museum tomorrow then onto my First bike on scene medics course at North Wales police and fire service this weekend. Happy days :001:

Loaned you a bike?  What a concept.   I asked my selling dealer about that and they looked at me like I was from another world!  Never mind the UK.

Another reason why I do all my own maintenance.

Always had great feedback with all the guys at A1,
I think it is a given that a loaner/demo is available, helps keep us sweet for another spend ...maybe!
T100 Bonnie great retro fun but certainly no slouch on the road, just like the early ones we had in the 60/70's only they STOP/GO/TURN CORNERS/START ON THE BUTTON/ PEGS WRONG WAY..... as I say just like the old days!!!!!!
Good for them to interact and tell you in full about the work done.
I'm sure our paths will cross there sometime just missed you as I was there on Monday lunch in van with TT rear wheel due to a blowout going down LYTH bank into Sandsend ,Whitby on Sat evening, slightly scary!!!
Cheers.

thanks. That is not the place to have a puncture especially if you are on the bottom hairpin. Hope all is well now.
No doubt we will meet up on our visits at sometime.

Watch out for all the pheasant flying across the roads outside Harrogate now that your rolling along again.  Then again, DINNER!  Nothing like a ride to eat. :745:

 :745: thanks trophied
Yes there are a lot around at present. Unfortunately if I hit one and pick it up it is poaching. I I pick one up that someone else hit it is dinner.  :745:
Crazy laws.
Hit a pheasant on the bike and it is the bike you will be picking up? :745:

1215, spotted a silver Trophy on a 63 plate heading north past the Hart Inn, Sandsend at 16:40 hrs Sat. Waiting for the bus after a couple of pints and a walk from Whitby.
