Heads Up About D & D Discount Motorcycles In The Phoenix Area

Post by landisr »



D & D has been a go-to shop for 'Wingers for a long time. They have a talented service staff and sell used bikes and trikes. One of their staff writes a tech column in GWRRA's monthly magazine. However, they no longer work on 4 cylinder Wings. They do, however recommend another local shop for that work.

Also, even though they work on the 1500s, they do not service their alternators (brushes, rear bearing, etc). I couldn't get an answer as to why. I ended up going to a local automotive electrical shop.

Just thought I would pass the word.

Not uncommon for shops to start weaning from the older bikes. The new technicians aren't learning about them. Here in OH I have used a motor rewind shop for this type of work. When I replaced my 1200 starter, I found a brush free starter I think for a Civic that would mount right up. Amazing upgrade, and no more slow turning when the engine was hot, or the brushes started to wear. Research online, you might be able to do something similar.
