        FULL FULL service or FULL service?
        he's pretty expensive.. I got charged about $500 or so by memory *looks at the burn marks in his wallet*
        He usually is quite good though
        Right now Im having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think Ive forgotten this before.

            I think full service is (been a while since one so I might be wrong) $400 - $500 or so??
            I'm having one done very shortly actually and chain, sprockets as well, I'll let you know if u wants?
            He may be a little bit more expensive, but considering the difference in feel afterwards compared to two other places I had my bike done, it is worth it!

                Actually, on the same topic... As I've just had a new Devil (Titanium!) exhaust put on, I now need to get it on the dyno/find out if it's running lean, etc... Can anyone recommend a good place to get ths done? I've had Dyno Time recommended from the bike store (Mack 1) but if there is someone people already trust, it'd make me feel better.

                  Although the guys down at Causeway Honda are good people I've also found one-on-one to be very good to my old zx-12r. I'd reccomend them.

                  Oh...500 bux is kinda standard for a full service...yes the wallet does hurt.

                        96 vs series ....

                        ummm 230 kw 5 litre.....

                        great toy .. farkin expensive tho ..

                        um lets see .. 2K easy..

                        the fluids alone used to cost me $350 - 400
                        thats also having my brake pads done each time ... gearbox and diff service... full engine service .. dyno tune now and then .. off car throttle clean .... all that shit... it was costin me 7 - 8 k a year to keep on the road ..

                        but haven said that .. the look on a turbo ricers face when u took their doors off witha commodore was worth it ... i did a standing 100 in just under 6.... :twisted:

                        and the car looked standard... just low and a tinted.... didnt sound standard tho .. at full open throttle it was farkin load ... *tilts heads and thinks* that might of been as it didnt have a muffler on it tho .. :twisted: :twisted:

                        hmmmmmm
