West Coast Motorsports Gets Worse

Last March I wrote about my friend getting bad service on his Honda Valkyrie. Well it just got worse!

Last Friday the bearings on his rear wheel failed and became shot. He discovered the nut holding down the rear wheel was over-torqued. The last person to touch this nut was a mechanic at West Coast Motorsports in Perris, CA.

If you recall, they took six hours to put on a new rear tire, a job that normally takes two hours. They charged him for six.

He also mentioned they stole his tool bag. He said it was missing after they worked on his bike. This is in addition to them replacing his chrome valve stem caps with plain plastic ones.

So now his bike is in his garage, torn apart, waiting for new bearings. Of course, he can't ride.

What's worse is that West Coast Motorsports keeps giving him the runaround, refusing to address the matter. He's absolutely livid, and he's posting messages on every motorcycle forum focused on Southern California. He's filing a complaint with the State of California.

What's the moral of the story?

1. Keep all receipts and paperwork in case you have to file a complaint or case.

2. Remove the custom valve stem caps before taking your bike in.

3. Remove all stuff from your bags before taking your bike in.

With a place like West Coast Motorsports, you can't take any chances.

  4. To the above commenter, keep in mind that a lot of bikes don't come fully assembled. That is, the dealer does the final assembly, which means of course, their service center.

  5. Would love to hear more. I'm currently suing them for not only poor repair but also failure to live up a promised warranty/service contract.

  6. I have a Honda I just bought from them and after only 115 miles the bolt that holds the shifter in place fell off while on the fwy in the fast lane. The bike has been in the shop for over 7 days to replace that missing bolt and adjust the clutch. Starting to wish I went somewhere else.

  8. I am the owner of West Coast Motorsports and just became aware of this web site and the complaint. We stand behind our work 100%. We service probably 200-400 bikes per month with little or no problems. We have a 5 Star Rating and were selected as one of the "TOP 100 Dealers in the US".

    I am amazed the poor information of these false claims. In the complaint about the Valkyrie, why is it the friend as to complain,
    (get a life). Please also note how he complaints about other dealers. If we had quoted wrong it would certainly be an honest mistake. As he said "His Friend" was quoted
    $150 - 2 hours labor, then was called back with a new quote of $250 for 6 hours. DO THE MATH. We charge $75 per hour so that means we wrote off $150 for making a simple error. Doesnt' seem like something a horrible crook would do! Secondly we are acused of stealing a tool kit, the same type that we have a least a 50 in a box in our service department, which we would have gladly given him a free one. The valve stem caps being lost once again would have been an oversite.(as he said he had to come back to get them, so obviously they weren't
    stolen. Please keep in mind we gave him a $150 CREDIT! Common sense would tell you to remove any valuables from your bike before having it serviced. We normally ask customers to do that. Car Dealers, Car Washes, Repair Garages all have signs posted "NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR CUSTOMER VALUABLES"

    By the way we were never taken to small claims. Another mis-fact.

    I welcome any suggestions or complaints. But I do require that there is some fact to them.

  9. One of the employees at West Coast just showed me your site. I can tell you we have never had a problem with the sales or service department. Pricing was always very fair and for the most part work was done ahead of schedule. Before using West Coast we had tried a few other dealers and did not receive as good service or employees who seemed to care. I would highly recommend West Coast Motorsports. I have been riding over 30 years so I have a good knowledge of bikes, dealers, good and bad service. I feel that they provide TOP Service.

  10. My husband and I are long time customers of West Coast Motorsports. They have been very supporative of our club and it's riders, touring all brands (including that funny brand HD, just kidding . . .). I haven't heard of any member complaining aobut poor service, lost parts or uncaring attitude. Matter of fact it has been just the opposite.it seems like with some people if everything doesn't go perfect they beocme ungluded. Welcome to life - problems will happen with everything.

I am in a club and I konw many of the other local members get their bikes serviced at West Caost as well as getting accessoires and stuff their. I have never heard anybody coplaint about poor service or rude treatment. Isn't it amazing how everyting happens to some people. They never realize maybe it is them. Look for the good not the bad!

  13. I have purchased 12 units and still counting from West Coast Motorsports within the last 9 months. Any warranty problems etc were resolved immediately. I have been very happy with all of their services and the concerned people and management. I continue to buy from them and can't belive the negative comments. Check closer probably very Negative People!

  14. The negative comments suprise me. We have dealt with WCMS for a long time and always felt we got top notch service. I orginally got started with WCMS's Service Deparment when Yamaha recommended them after I had problems with another large Yamaha Dealers Service Department. I would highly recommend West Coast Motorsports

  15. Have never had a problem! Hell Ford just recalled a 1,000,000 cars and trucks, mistakes - do happen. I use to run a repair buisness and couldn't complete with West Coast Motorsports service and pricing.I had customers tell me they were great and my service and prices were to high. I heard bad stories about every dealer. I also learned that customers many time stretch the truth and overlook that they may have caused the problem. There is an old saying in the car business "Buyers are Liers" Probably applies here!

  21. If West Coast is such a good dealership why are they laying off one forth of their staff! As a former employee I have personally seen the mishaps in our service dept. And I would not let any of the Service Techs touch my personal bikes. These positive posts where all added by current staff members to counter any negative publicity we have received, Steve you nailed our Dealership with your article,Great Job. Stay away from West Coast Watch them go Bankrupt.

  23. The whole industry is off 25% or more. Perris is down the most of any City in California because of the sub prime loans. Read the papers. I don't know of a dealership that has not layed off employees, some a lot more then 25%Get your facts straight. I am a vendor to West Coast Motorsports and have never had a problem with them and they pay their bills always on time! I notice a x-employee posted negative comments, I am sure West Coast did not lay off their top employees.West Caost is in the Top 5% of my dealers. They care and are doing an excellent job.

  24. To all the people writing in about the good things West Coast has done for them thats great but what does it have to do with the SERVICE DEPT? Anyone can change oil and tires but when it comes down to it they can't do the big repairs. It's not there fault they are in a small area surrounded by bigger shops that could afford great service techs. I my self had two big repairs done there and they messed up both, one they "forgot to put back in the antifreeze" and sent the bike home with me. This was there best Service Tech. There are plenty of bigger shops around that have qualified techs, why in the world risk your bike when it costs the same at the other shops! WC has a very young staff that is still learning go with experance. 74 Motosports, Temeccula MS, Chapperal, Callaway just to name a few.

  26. Bigger is certainly not better- I also ride a 450 and have had the exact opposite experience where one of the dealers you named couldn't diagnose a problem and West Coast was able to. I have been very satisfied with there service and like being treated like a paying customer rather then a number like the "Big-Shop". I have been impressed with Mary, always able to answer my questions.

I have ridden it already and its perfect.

  34. Its amazing that any one would support such a crap place like West Coast they are the laughing stock of the IE! Any ovh place you go talk with real riders and you will here about the mishaps of West Coast. If you trust these hacks to touch your bike you will regret it sooner or later! As far as their sales dept i have no experiance with them. But the parts dept and service dept have a bunch of kids with little or no knowledge of bikes. ANYONE WHO POSTS POSITVE FOR THIS TJ SHOP IS A JOKE THEMSELVES! Ask the service dept about vapor lock!!!! hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have had great experiences with there service department. I know one of the mechanics was the Vance & Hines race mechanic so they certainly must know something.
    Tell us about a vabor lock Mr Know-It All! At leaset they are honest, some of the IE shops have been caught overcharging and not doing work that they charged for. Call the DMV! Better get all your details straight before you make such stupid comments.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I saw that comment posted by somebody who must borderline on being a idiot, referring to it has a TJ Shop. Wonder what that is?
    I called them to ask what caused a vabor lock and this is what they said.
    "When the gasoline overheats and boils inside the carb bowl or fuel pump of a hot engine it ceases to flow. This can cause the bike to stall or hard starting. It usually happens durning hot weather. Might be caused by hot engine, cooling system problems or try switching brand of gas" I am a mechanic and that is a Right On Answer! Maybe the other writer who referred to TJ was referring to himself "Top Jackass"!

Who in there right mind would let anyone touch there toy with a history like theirs. Plus I saved 3,000 bucks going to Callaway. After talking to a few local shops while shopping around I heard some very bad stories about West Coast they really are the laughing stock of the IE. Steer Clear of these guys why risk it.

  52. We were very happy with our purchase of our Rhino at West Coast. Matter of fact they tricked it all out for us and so far we have been very pleased. I noticed that somebody else made a comment that they went to Callaway and saved $3,000 on their Rhino. We checked all around when we bought ours and Callway didn't even carry Rhino, they were not a Yamaha Dealer. West Coast was the cheapest.

  54. Dear Mr. Evans-
    My wife showed me this site as she was leaving comments about our positive experience with West Coat Motorsports and our Rhino purchase.
    I am attorney and very aware of claims and how they are filed. Aftering checking court records I noted that done of these claims were found against West Coast Motorsports. So other words according to the court there were 4unjust claims filed in the past 36 months. Check with your wife she will tell you the number #1 Group that has claims filed against them is Auto Dealers, Repair Dealers and related industries to auto and repairs. I don't know how many repairs West Coast does a year but I would assume 300-500 that means they run less then 1/4 of 1% claims against them. The auto industry average is 4%. Remember they were not found at fault on any of these claims. I don't have a interest in West Coast but I do have a interest in making sure that the truth is spoken and clear.

  63. Most off road race teams use very little Loctite. Loctite many years ago was very popular but there are now far more effective, quicker and easier ways to secure nuts and bolts. We all use wire ties, nylon nuts and or nylon lock washers. It makes it much easier to do a tear down, quick adjustment, or part replacement. I have been on three race teams in the past seven years and none of them hardly ever used Loctite. I know it is still used on engines and parts that are not used for competition or under heavy use or hard riding. I think a few motorcycle manufactures still speicfy it in their service manuals but they do not use it on there own offroad race vehicles.

  65. At the request of West Coast Motorsports we haveresearched your claim. First of all the judge in samll claims court sided with West Coast Motorsports. Secondly you admitted in court you had 8-12 hours (not 3) on the quad and had the brakes replaced after West Coast Motorsports worked on the unit. Thirdly EVEN the judge told you directly that the other dealer doing the work NOT West Coast Motorsports was at fault. You did not pay a dime for the repairs it was done under warranty and paid by HONDA. As the judge explained to you if the work had been done wrong HONDA would have debited West Coast Motorsports and paid the other dealer.

    I strongly suggest that you consult with attorney before you continue to make false claims.

    I got the bike today. It is everything you said it was. Buying a Vintage Motorcycle from somebody you don't know 2,000 miles away can turn into a very bad experience. I can't believe that the day Honda build this bike it looked any better. You and you company were great with all the photo's and background on the bike. It is perfect in every way. The way you packed it in the wooden crate for trucking came out perfect.Pleae let me know if you have any other Vintage Bikes that are in this perfect condition.

We will certainly tell all our friends how good your serivce department is and how nice the people are.

  89. Thanks for your help on my bike. i know the problem was caused by the company I bought it at, but thanks for fixing it. i promise the next bike I will buy from you. You guys know what your doing while the other place had young kids. They might be great for fixing hamburgers but not fixing my bike! The way they put that wheel on I could have been kiled if it came off on the freeway. Tahks again for catching there screw-up.

  90. Hey Gents-
    i am so sorry, I got so upset about my kids 50 not running after you serviced it. Come to find out my son (7) wanted to waash his bike when I brought it home and (without me knowing) he put the hose up the exhaust and turned it on. Thanks for taking care of it and being so polite and understanding. I should have known better after all the times you have serviced my bike and my older sons quad and they were perfect.

  91. Hi Barry

    Thanks for all your help over the years to keep my sons bikes able to line up for the next race. I get so busy I forget to ever say thanks. Do you realize we have been coming to West Coast Motorsport for over six years without any major problems. Now if I can just keep Jaden injury free we might win a championship.

    Thanks Barry and All the Staff At West Coast Motorsports. You truly do care about our customers.

  98. I am a x-employee of West Coast Motorsports. I heard about this site and wnated to post a comment. Even though I was layed off, it was a very cool place to work. The only pressure I ever felt was to do a good job and treat our customers fairly. I worked at one other shop and their only concern was to get anything and everything from the customer. I don't know who posted the early comments but I never heard of any upset customers. I would recommend them.

  101. I recently got layed off working here because of economy slow down. They always treated me right. I know their was one upset customer who kept making a big deal. They were wrong and lost in court. But because of this cuosmter West Coast started asking all their customers to post on this web site any feedback. That is why the last few months there is a lot of activity. West Coast is very fair and honest I know I worked their for almost three years full and part time!

  107. unbeliveable your guys were able to fix my CBR. Like I siad you were the 3rd shop and the other two couldn't find the problem. How stupid is that a wire would only short out once in a while under the gas tank. thanks David

  108. Thanks for the prompt service-they were on it quick and itruns great. I noticed a lot of the shops have cut there hours with all the economy problems. Seems like most of them cut them to help themselves NOT there customers. Thanks West Coat Motorsports for keeping the service deaprtment open to accomodate cusotmers schedules.

  113. been taking my bike their for over 5 years--never a problem, great customer service. I read the last two comments, based on there stupid comments (probably the same person) together they probably have an IQ that equals the number of cyclinder of their bike (1-6).
    I'm sure with that type of thinking they wouldn't know good service nor did they probably every do preventive maintneance. Aren't we lucky this in this world we only have a few of these types of people-and most of them are in jail!

  114. Never had any problems with West Coast. Real nice comments about the people. I guess consider the source,that comes with no education
    and a lousy upbringing. I am sure glad I don't have to go through life in your body and weak mind. By the way I assue this must be a girl if they are riding a 250F. Get on a Mans Bike!

  119. They always treated my wife and I great and gave us a big discount. I highly recommend them.

    They seemd to know alot more then some of the other dealers we have dealt with or the years. One big dealer in Riverside had our Rhino for a month and said nothing was wrong. We had the smae problem again so Yamaha recommended WC Motorsports. They figured out the problem in one day and covered under the warranty!

  126. DO NOT take your business to WCMS. They have been sued thirteen times, one of them was me (you can find a list on the riverside county court web site)!

    Those guys at West Coast Motorsports are absolutely incompetent failures! They put the wrong oil filter in my dual sport motorcycle, then denied it outright. I had lots of evidence including the invoices for the repair, stating that they installed the wrong filter. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough, and I lost the case in court.
