    yeah but a retune/fit map/tank would be a fair bit of work, thats exceptional in my book, there is only one mechanic and I'm pretty sure he only has 4 fingers on one hand so he goes good!

    Whenever I get work done there he always is up for a chat, inviting me to ride days etc or just talking general shit, As he is a small shop I always am willing to support him so I always make sure I buy my chain lube/silicon spray etc from him even if I can get it for half that price at supercheap. Shit even just then I just bought a husky shirt for $70, a fuckin Tshirt He helps me so I'll help him. Plus the shirt looks awesome so win win

    From now on I'm always going to get my bikes from just out of Sydney and not big dealerships, too impersonal, just a business to get you on a bike asap and not actually help you find what you are after.

    That is damn impressive indeed!

    Why don't you give this fine establishment a free plug, and share the love amongst your fellow jdmster bikers?

    Hey guys i am after a battery charger for my bike to keep the battery charged whilst my bike is not in use.

    Since my bike has a Rotax V Twin apparently cranking a motor with high compression puts a huge strain on the battery, and if the battery isn't fully charged, this can put stress on ignition components causing premature wear/failure.

    So will a $50 ebay charger perform the same as a $300 job?

    You shall ace it then!

    Plus also when you get there you practice the test course brake test, u turn test at least a dozen times before you actually do 'the test'

    Good luck mate!

    Yeh, the test on the day is actually alot more forgiving than the layout on the RTA site diagram.

    They will let you practice the course, but be aware, after the road ride, the course 'changes' and you'll do each individual component on a separate area (kinda made us nervous)

    but needless to say it was a walk in the park....alot of fun actually!
