Re: Tank Slappy While Indoing?

patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited did mine at the track. he charged $25 but i heard andy charges about the same. make sure whoever does it tells you what he is doing and why.

it should be alot of getting off and on the bike plus bouncing so they can adjust it for your weight and your style of riding.

Re: Tank Slappy While Indoing?

Andy does charge the same amount.

But you can expect better customer service and first hand exp for your money.* right:

Probably just in a bad mood. That's definitely a "git the out me shop" price.
