First topic message reminder :

Well i'll tell you what can happen.

Mr Mechanic Drops said bikes fuel tank which then rolls along his concrete floor causing numerous dents and scratches to the tank and filler. - Owns up to this and reckons he'll have it smart repaired (no chance, will need repairing, repainting and new decals)

Also manages to gouge a chunk of paint off frame, Scratch and chip the rear fairing where it meets the seat, rub the corners of seat on something damaging the fabric more than it already was, and scratch and chip the seat cowl too ( How the feck he did this i dont know!)

Then, Mr mechanic has the cheek to get arsey with me, saying that im taking the mick out of his "goodwill" by telling me about the damage! Yeah, because i wouldnt have noticed all the dents and scrapes all over my previously mint tank now would i!

Then further insults me saying well it is "JUST" an 8 year old bike!

Then smirks as he says all the extra damage wasnt him and he'll only fix the tank. Managed to get him to agree to the seat cowl as well after some serious assertiveness ( bordering on aggressive if im honest Laughing) but still have the frame to sort and the rear fairing.

Not impressed at all! However on the plus side,My carbs are now better than ever, and he reckons my cush drive rubbers are worn and thats whats causing the judderyness under 3krpm. Another thing for the list!

will upload pics tomorrow when i get chance, as i have a way early start tomo and need my sleep!
