you drove the bike in for a tire and left with a hole in the Oil Pan ????

am i hearing this right?

did you see them preform the work ? do they have normal hydralic lifts and did yu see the hole? was it a crack or a complete hole?

i may just be over reacting but i just find it really hard to beleive that you all of a sudden get this narly oil leak from a HOLE in the Oil pan ( sounds to me like consperacy)

i took my bike to a dealer ONE time and i will never do that again (thank you STUBBS POWER SPORTS HWY 59) they... well lets just put it this way i turned down the free oil change they offered because i didnt want them near my bike again

be very precausious about service done when you cant stand over them and watch.

the motorcycle industry is full of crooks and its becasue there is not a necesity means for transportation for everyone (note: i said that because i know ppl can afford cars or choose not to own them.).

i have been in houston almost 2 years know and i beleive that if you are going to need or get service done .... Yes even a tire change if you dont do it yourself, Motorcycles Unlimited is probably one of your best bets.

dont get me wrong I DO all of my own work now but if i had to trust some one it ould be Pat

This came to my mind as well, but it's highly unlikely. Rudy seems to know his way around bikes pretty well from what I've seen. I would believe re-use of the gasket as a possibility, but definitely not lifting from the oil pan for a tire change.

Sound and the timing of someone flagging him... hit a sharp rock, or a piece of metal the right way and while unlikely, not impossible for it to have punctured the pan... and if we consider

I'm with you man. I always feel like I'm betting on either their technical knowledge and skill or my conscientiousness and diligence when it comes to my equipment.

I'm not saying they put the hole in the pan just saying that they said it would not leak any more with all the work he said he did.I spent way too much money on this and could of had pat my first chose do it for less and done it right. I guess I'm kinda at my self for trusting someone to do a good job on my bike. If I had a truck to take it too Motorcycles Unlimited I would have.

I have been using Two Wheel Toys for a couple of years now & have had no regrets on taking my bike there.
They will see that the job gets done for sure.
I had one guy work on my bike after hours because he did not want to do a rush shabby job & I appreciate that.
Hope you bike is up & running well without leaks now.

So my buddy told just me about your deal.
He said you paid right around $600.00 to have replace your damaged oil pan and all they did was jb weld your oil pan? Is that true?
If so, you got . Did they ever make it right?

I had a negative experience there as well a while back, wont go back. I don't really want to go into details and what not, but I will only take my to Motorcycles Unlimited. I've visited a few other shops, and none of them can compare. If it's not something that me and the fellas can do, I just suck it up and make that long drive.

yes i payed way too much on this and the thing is i know. I dont have a truck to take my bike home when it broke just 1/2 a mile from 2 wheel toyz. they have always taken great care of me so i thought i would give them a shot at doing so. befor i picked it up i had a talk with pat at Motorcycles Unlimited. I after the first time i picked it up it leaked all over my bike. i took it back it was leaking around the oil pan. i had my work hardness test it and the weld was weak in two spots, so i had my coworker fix it and now im happy that it wont leak but i redid every thing they did. all my work has always been done at Motorcycles Unlimited.

how did you talk too?

I talked to a guy I met riding.
I think he said his name is Greg. I was asking if he knew any good shops becuase I had got by the assclowns at 2 Wheeled Toyz. He told me about your problem and a couple of others he had heard about from over there. It's you had to fix it yourself after you paid them so much money.

wow man, i would of came and picked u and bike up for a quarter of that price and u bought a new pan and installed and all for way less!!!! i cant believe u paid that much just to have them repair it and not replace it if thats what im reading right.....


i am pretty sure motorcycles unlimited would of picked it up as well and replace it for less......

and plus a weld can leak, just saying, oil will find a way out if its not 100% truely welded, jbwel will leak if its on it and plus could crack off into the oil and get sucked in the pump and cause a big problem......

ya Greg is a friend of mine hes good guy.

ya i try to do right and give people a chance to do whats right, but i it seems every time i do that i get f ed over. so i will never give them my money for any thing and will never send them customers. ya Motorcycles Unlimited said around 425 or so with new pan and work. i like Motorcycles Unlimited they are willing to tell you what happend to your bike, how it got that way and what to do to provent it. if they would pick it up that would of changed my mind right away. But you live and learn not to trust some people.

the weld is done right now with all the testing on it i did. I work at a machine shop and we make parts for high pressure and high temp oil feild parts.

+1 JB should not be a permanent fix especially coming from a motorcycle shop! I won't bad mouth them on a public forum so I'll leave it as that.

U should of asked for help on here man!! As soon as u started questioning how the hole got there u should of posted up for a ride. There are plenty of ppl on here including me who would if picked u and your bike up. I would of offered to help u fix it right with new parts. What I'm trying to say is don't underestimate the Motohouston family!! Someone always pulls thru for ya

wow
i have never been to 2 wheel toys. isnt it like 5 minutes from 1960?
im glad you got your problem fixed. that sounds like some total bullshit though.
it really takes a lot to me off and really get me aggravated, but while reading this thread i could sympathize with a couple of points and really understood the situation you were in. if i were you, i would do what i could to get the $600 back. call the BBB on them or something if they wont work something out with you. heh, avoid free service to your bike, like someone else had mentioned.
