Re: Damage

I guess I can now take it to a shop for a written estimate. The estimate (now I know what needs fixed) would be free & wud be based on about $120.00 / hr. If they say 3 hrs (or $360) + $800 for parts = $1160.00 & the tow guys gimme 60% of that (or $700), my buddy will charge 40 / hr & is just as goo...

Re: Damage

The Honda dealer wud charge me $220.00 just to tell me what was wrong with it. Neither the tow company or the company that dispatched the tow company would pay for that

Re: Damage

UPDATE: I got my bike towed & the driver damaged it. I had a Goldwing guy (who rebuilds them) take pictures & confirm the damage was done by the tow.

Re: Damage

yes The reason the time lapse is cuz they wanted someone "official" to document damage & I cudn't find anyone w/o paying 100 / hr for 2 or 3 hrs, so after 3 months I finally convinced them to get my GWRRA buddy to do it. Going via the company that dispatches GWRRA Rescue Plus& get them to talk with ...

Re: Damage

Damage

A tow truck driver caused some ($1200) damage to my bike when he towed it. I had someone in the know document the damage was done from the tow

The tow truck driver denied he caused the body damage & they offered me 50% of the total repair bill.

What would you do?

Thank you

Re: Ignition switch assembly

I talked to a wing guy I mostly trust & he said it;s ok for them to b a little loose, altho I doubt that's true. I just wish I knew where the little blots are that I tighten up & what kinda tool that I use to do it.

Thanx
