Unless you are a negotiator all of them are going to be "expensive". especially in this economy bc sales are slow. They can't afford to give them away. IMO buy used from private sellers.

IMO, their service is lacking. I called them and asked them about resetting the ECU on my BMW because of an accidental unplugging of the rear ABS sensor. They said they would need the bike for two days minimum so they could ride, and presumably find other things they think are wrong with it. They quoted me a minimum cost of $120.

When I got the right tool it took me all of five minutes to reset it.

like that is what makes people do their on work. If there was a honest dealership out there that charged reasonable rates for work, they'd make a killing. I understand that they gotta make $$$ but resetting like that isn't rocket science. I got my bike there, I asked if they could replace the tires as they were the OE ones. The sales manager told me it was best to go someplace else because he'd have to charge too much for them. I respected his honesty.

If your gonna buy a new bike then look outside of houston into the smaller towns.I search on cycletrader.com a lot and they always have lower prices.I guess its not so much cause they dont have competition but prob not as many customers not having as much population as us.

I've been happy with Mancuso on 45N.

I bought the wife's bike at Katy Yamaha. Also did the 600 mile service there. Very proffesional, awesome to deal with. I'd buy another bike from them.

Only experience Ive had with Mancuso was this weekend at the 59 location, and I must say, they were slammed, so no one was able to help us right away, but when someone got free, they seemed helpful and not just wanting to make the sale. My cousin was even told to shop around and do his home work. :eek:



Stubbs is not only a sponsor, but have been in business at the telephone rd. location for a LONG time, which means they are doing SOMETHING right. Everytime Ive been in there the staff is always friendly and laid back, no big pressure.
