Oh I was pissed man.. Today i was riding out to my sisters baby shower and im pretty sure he drove by me, i gave him a big wave.. lol.. But yeah.. What really had me rolling was that I had my bike in there because I had gotten rear-ended at a red light.. the peoples insurance took care of all of it.. i got a new rim, axle, tire and money for my aftermarket -ebay- plastics.. they kinda jipped me out of a new y0shi exhuast, which is what i have on there.. The people that hit me did not mess up my exhaust, just bent it.. because I didnt have it bolted all the way to the sub-frame.. which is good cause my subframe would of been torn up and my exhaust would of been torn up too.. all the little fender bender did was bend my exhaust, warp my rim, scratch my tire, crack my back tail fender and my tire hugger.. which got paid for.
and this is what made me laugh..
It took 6 and a half hours to change a new rim and axle.. and put the new tire on..
They did not take the rim off, then the axle.. they took the axle off and left the rim on there, which saved them time.. So 6 and a half hours? holy hell that was.. almost 500 bucks in labor.. that I didn't pay, the insurance did.. but still.. seriously? take 6.5 hours on that?
That made me laugh a lil bit, but what really made me laugh was when I did all of this and brought it up to them.. I told them that I thought it was a fuse and told them where the fuse box was and just to check it out really quick.. and they brought out the manual for my bike and was lookin stuff up on it.. then told me about the wireing harness about 20 minutes later.
Im not trying to bad mouth them.. Idk if they were trying to rip me off money and try to get the best of me cause I know very little about my bike.. "which im learning a lot now.." but it just ticks me off when that happens..
I do remember him saying that he "dont know" yet and hes gonna try and find out.. and not try n have me get a new wiring harness.. but that was his first guess was the wiring harness. lol
Alright.. I wrote a crapload.. i doubt anyone reads this!
thanks again guys!
