Thanks. I've been considering that as well. He does sound very knowledgeable with regard to Goldwings but I'm quickly losing faith in him.
That's what they all say. In actuality there are some basic systems that are common to all bikes as most motorcycle mechanics understand at this level. My first mechanic took a long time to re-build my carbs and cussed the tupperware and parts removal. He ended up breaking one piece and improperly installing another. I think part of what I paid for his hourly rate paid for part of his learning on my bike as I doubt he had ever worked on a Wing. He'll never work on my bike again as I've found a shop that usually has a few Wings in for repair and they are experienced working on Gold Wings. I'm learning to now to avoid the shade tree mechanic to save a buck and take it to someone who knows what they're doing and fix it right in the first place. I still have a leaking master cylinder my original mechanic rebuilt and everytime I call him to bring it in he tells me his lifts have other bikes on them and bring it back next week. This has been going on now for several months. You get what you pay for. Go get your bike and take it to a mechanic who knows Goldwings and has worked on them.
