Lesser of 2 evils??

Looking to get some gen. maint. done on the bike (oil, tune-up, tighten down the fairing). Yup, I'm lazy!

So, who will rip me off less??

Chicago Cycle - on Toughy

or

Champion Cycle on Western

All feedback welcome

+1 to what Mort said. See if anyone on the board lives near you. I'm sure for a few beers someone would help you change your oil and tighten your fairings. Both very simple tasks.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I've changed the oil, which isnt that difficult. The sconed time i had it done and they tightented the plug too much and I had to change the oil pan (that was a bitch!!). As for the 15,000 mile mark maintenance, I have the book but am not to confident, so I could use help. As for the fairing, everytime I buy a screw or bolt its the wrong size or some crap!! Not to mention I tried changing clutch plates about 3 times not realizing somthing else was wrong internally. I could rant all day about a bike i spent $3,700 on and have dumbed about $3,000 into over two years. I am willing to pay, help, buy beer, whatever someone wants. I just want to get the bike ready soon for next year as I will be riding in March. I live at 4334 sheridan, by wrigly. Anybody???
