Got an estimate for fork rebuilding that included some nonsense so I did it myself.
Had a tire mounted there that was ready a day later than they said it would be. This tells me they are not the type to skip a smoke break or to stay open an extra 10 minutes to satisfy a customer.
I agree, they are crotch rocket minded. I'll go elsewhere.
In the mean time a new shop has popped up on Chicago Ave between Western and California. Chewies. They're light on accessories but have maintenance fluids. A large repair shop with about 5 mechanics and it is packed.
Des Plaines Honda is literally across the street from a Metra - so that may be convenient... that is where I got my wing and they do all my scheduled service and such. Good people, shop staff is very intimate with the wing, and a few of the senior sales and shop guys have gl1800's themselves.
