Left repair shop worst off

After valve adjustment, and valve cover gasket replacement at a non site sponsor shop my 03 R6 will not stay running it will run for about 10minutes and then cut out, I have no idea why it's cutting out, when I took it in it was no problem

Which shop? Did they adjust any of the valves? Take it back and make them fix it...

Shop is V-eagle rider on hwy.6 I am never going back there again it took a month and week to do valve adj. and degree cams, charged too much to pick a map for PC-V, after I get it back there is oil leaking cause he didn't change valve cover gasket, says that it was my fault cause I didn't bring it in with my parts, but any ideas on why the bike would run & then cut out

Take your bike to Motorcycles Unlimited

You're not going to get satisfaction from that shop

Take him to small claims court

Learn your lesson

My best advice to you is to buy a shop manual for your bike and learn it. All shops mess up your bike FYI...

It appears it is... or there are two identical situations with two different people!

You saved money by bringing your own parts and picking the cheapest place. Quit . Buy once cry once.

There is a reason the same 2-4 shop names come up when people ask, and it ain't because they have well stocked vending machines.

Don't bring it back for them to fix, they jacked it up the first time. Bring it to a good recommended shop and let them fix it the right way.

And let the shop order your parts. That way if there is a problem it's on them to fight whomever they came from.


Or don't, just don't about it when your bike is "worst" off after the repair.

Sounds to me like the shop just has it out for imports. Probably it up on purpose just to get it off the street.

I wonder if the shop had to borrow some metric tools, or just said, "awe it" and did the work anyway
