    Service at Aprilia Performance Tamworth

    My T has been in Aprilia Performances' safe hands all today for a full service, valve check, suspension set up (what a difference!) install a socket for my sat-nav, ... the works.

    I was there all day too pretending to be busy on my lappy but I can honestly say I leaned more about my bike in 7 hours than I have in the past 8 months of ownership.

    Good crack with some other punters, a hugey fuck off bacon sausage tomato and mushroom bap from the adjacent butty van.

    And the cost ?

    309 all in.

    I would have loved some of their wicked looking rear-sets too but alas that will have to wait until funds permit.

    Well worth giving these guys a try it in my opinion. Griff and his team are to be congratulated on their professionalism, thoroughness, willingness to teach and general all round good-eggedness.

    6,025 miles on the clock

    From the things I saw as she was being disassembled, a "proper" service had never been done. e.g seized exhaust bungs and no sign of coppa-slip on any threads.

    Griff was happy to explain and show things like hydraulic cam chain tensioner, what to look for in the intake flaps, even gave me a go at feeler-gauging the cams/valve cups so I could "feel" what he was looking for.

    The guys ace at what he does and what a pleasant change from dropping a bike off at an anonymous dealership and spunking out a wad of cash for work done (or not) behind closed doors.
