what should "this" shop do

I brought my bike to a shop which remain unnamed and after 350 dollars later, they put a couple screws in and said they fixed the wiring.....

and now I find that there is a wiring problem where my bike will start for 2 minutes...then the panel will flicker and if you try to use the horn or anything, it dies even quicker....

so what should i do if this shop tries to charge me again, because i have a feeling they will, and also feel that it's a wiring problem that can prolly be fixed in about 5 minutes....

what should I do?

(i wish i was close to Patrick, but i'm quite a bit far away)

I just want a shop that is close that will take care of me and not try to rip me off.....because if I told a customer ( who has sent many many many people that have given business) that i fixed their wiring, then I wouldnt charge a penny, I would want to make it right...

but i have a feeling it wont be that way...so i may be looking for another local shop

its a pet peeve of mine when people want to discuss poor workmanship and/or shady work about a shop, but never want to tell the name. I would like to know so to keep people from going there, or at least be on the defense if they do want to go there.

is that them? I allready have a bad taste in my mouth from them.
I was playing with the idea of trading the RC51 in for this CBR1000 they want enough money to buy a brand new, but when they found out exactally WHOS RC51 I had, they were like "oh yea, that bike is all dented and scratched up, all the fairins are messed up, we can only offer you 2k"
I was like ,WTF my fairings are fine, just SOME scratches. and its true. I dont know where they got the notion that its a fest.
Screw em!!

Have you tried telling them that the bike still isn't fixed? If things aren't working out you can always file a BBB complaint or go to small claims court. Those are last resort options though.
