Service at Free State Cycle? - July 21, 2009, 03:22 PM

Hey everyone,

I need to take my 650 in for the 600 mile service. Coleman wants me to leave it for 3-5 days, but Free State said they can do it same day. Any feedback on their service dept? Thanks a lot,

D

I wouldn't take it to Coleman's. They'll seriously rape you (in a bad way). Dunno about FS. I'd recommend RnR 1st, or Devil Dawg 2nd.

DIY...save $$$ and learn something...i have stand syou can come and use...all you need is oil, oil filter, chain lube...then usual stuff like tightening chain, bolts, and making sure fluids are good like engine coolant brake, etc...

Mikeeb, are you willing to teach or just tell the person here are the tools, do it yourself? If you are offering to help, go all the way.

DIY. like the guy said. when you only have 2 wheels under you, it's your responsibility to have a basic understanding of the mechanics involved so that you can spot potential trouble before you get stranded by mechanical failure or go down from it.

Ill let them do the work and tell them how to do it properly. Ill provide the tools all they have to bring it the bike and oil and maybe some beer. I am still a newb when it comes to actual wrenching other than easy stuff. I think someone with knowledge and space should have a wrenching party to 1. teach 2. fun times. Everyone bring stuff and some food or drinks for the host in return for education

BS. It ain't rocket science and if you can afford a bike, you can afford some basic tools, lift stands and a torque wrench. Buy or download the service manual and if something comes up that you don't know how to do, google it.

Thanks for the offer Mike. Time is a bit of an issue for the next few weeks though; also I wonder whether DIY for the first service may have an impact on having problems with warranty work down the line (a few guys over at kawiforums mentioned this).

I may just swing by FS, but if I don't feel comfortable with them, then I'll stopping by with supplies and Stella.

In my case, it's not an issue of being able to afford tools and stands, but rather a question of where to store them when not in use.
