REPAIRS
« on: 01 March, 2011, 01:29:04 PM »
Just phone up a honda bike shop to find out how much would it be for a new chain and sprocket. 
Was told £130.00 for the honda kit and £47 for fixing it onto my bike.   is this to much???
I live in woodgreen n22 does anyone know of a garage or bike shops that are cheaper??
Or does anyone know where i can get the parts from and does anyone know how to fix them on?
I've got  vt125 honda shadow 58 plate.

sounds about right for honda parts.....i paid that recently for my vfr......may get them cheaper on ebay but make sure they are new and the right ones....they may be cheaper patent ones.....

they're not that difficult to fit but £47 for labour sounds ok...prob 45 minutes or an hour they've charged you. will take you twice that!!

Thank you guys for the info :aplude: :aplude:
Went to 1st line motorcyles today where i got my bike from saw the bloke in the shop,
I told him that my chain came off at the weekend,and that i might need a new chain and sprockets.
He check my bike over and said that i did'nt need to change my chain and sprockets. :dancing:
Also while i was there he checked over my bike and gave it a mini service  :aplude: :aplude: ;D ;D
The best part of it all,was it did'nt cost me a penny :dancing: :dancing:

mate depends on chain Prob cheap one will do on a 125 but I just got a D.I.D for a 660 and cost me £180 fitted.
I would recommend  calling motorcycle service centre on harrow road as I have always found them very helpful.
but also as KS says essential rubber are good.
depends on convenience really mate
sounds like your dealer is cool enough  ;)

i use 1st line, they're a pretty honest bunch there. they wont always be the cheapest being a honda dealer but they'll normally tell if you'll get it cheaper.

they are good for lending a helping hand for nowt, they tightened my chain for me once for free while i was there dribbling over other bikes :)

they have NTBPT stuff there too :)
