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.
