Best place for basic service (local) - May 13, 2007, 05:57 PM

No idea what is even around here, but was wondering if there are any good places people can recommend for quick in and out work. Nothing major at the moment, I just need to get my oil changed (and sadly I do not have a rear stand... this will be the first time in my life I've ever paid someone to work on one of my vehicles ) but don't want to waste time or excess money.

Or if someone has a stand (I don't have spools) and an oil pan they wouldn't mind letting me borrow, I could trade them a 6 pack or dinner for the inconvenience

IF you are serious and want it done and it is not raining, you might be able to get it done at the SPOT. I don't know R6's but someone will and can guide you through. Bring new oil, and fiter and the tools. You never know what can happen at the SPOT

You don't need a stand to change oil. Just go spend $10 or less for something to dump oil into.

For future reference, when you need to have more done, there are (1) Cycles USA on Georgia Ave near where Connecticut crosses in Silver Spring and (2) RAM Cycles in Old Town Gaithersburg. CUSA is pretty good but really backed up during the warm season. I have heard good things about RAM but have not had service done there yet. On the other hand, while the wait time maybe shorter, NEVER give into the temptation to take it to Criswell up in Germantown unless you want to see what color flames your burning cash makes. They also get $100/h labor. Sorry if this pisses anyone off, but they burned me once, and once is all I'll give them.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Hmm for some reason I was thinking it wouldn't drain appropriately but I forgot the drain plug is on the left side so it shouldn't be a big deal with the bike leaning that way. I'll have to take a look at it when it's light out again and figure it out.

Thanks for the replies and PMs, I'll see what I need to do next
