My son bought a secondhand motor bike, in perfect condition. Goes for his first ride last night and has a small accident, and now it means some minor repairs/parts. He is devastated, would like to learn about repairs and so I need someone who can work with him to do the repairs and help him learn and maybe give him some tips on not having another small accident next ride round :).
left a review for Richard V.
“An Excellent job done. Helped order the parts needed, then helped my son fix the motor bike, showed about repairing, picked up the tool set that he would need in the future, because we had no idea what one would be best to get. A very nice person to know, very reliable, and I would be happy to get other jobs done by him.”

Hi Lisa-maree, talked to Close Motorcycles and they don't have any. Could you please ring up Sydney City Motorcycles and order the parts? When they arrive I'll pick them up and come and fit them. If they are back ordered as I mentioned I will make a temporary repair (but completely safe) until the parts arrive. If that's okay I'll put in my offer.
It's really no trouble, and please tell your son not to stress, we'll have him back on the road in no time. Even if the parts have to be back ordered I can fix the existing gearshift and find a non matching but working indicator which will get him back on the road in the interim. And it really is no trouble, it's easy and it's good to be able to help.
Hello again. The price for the genuine Yamaha parts are $32 for the indicator and $36 for the gear lever. Unfortunately Sydney City Motorcycles don't have either part in stock and will need to order it from Yamaha Australia, which will take 2 days if they have them on the shelf (surely they should do), or 2-3 weeks if they don't😮😬. I tried MCA as someone suggested but they neither part. I'll check with Close Motorcycles tomorrow. Sorry I couldn't be more help. And I'm not pretending to be empathetic, I simply am. Yes good tooks are expensive, but the ones I'm thinking of will get him started until he can afford better ones if he wants to. I've worked on my own bikes (31 last count) since I was 13, and worked for 2 years overseeing the day to day maintenance of their 40 strong rental fleet, from learner bikes to touring BMW's and Harleys and have access to a very well equipped workshop if need be. So I think I'm suitably qualified to safely change an indicator and gear lever on an R15, and would be happy to give some advice on staying upright and general maintenance. For a hevily discounted price (I'm thinking $25). So there.
Hi Richard, I'm cheering right now. I never thought you were pretending, and what was said wasn't needed. Thanks for the trouble you're going to to help. It's appreciated as my son is very stressed out about this.
I also own four bikes At the moment and own over $6000 worth of tools I own car hoists.. plus I'm a pro that doesn't seem to be pretending to be sympathetic for money I'm being honest.. I'll help no issues at all
Look mate I'm a third year mechanic good tools and proper tools aren't cheap my quote is my quote your talking a lot you should just assign someone reliable with good reviews and a good description about themselves like a pro not just someone that says they are something without proof anyone can get a bike model and call a shop but only someone who knows what they are doing will do it safely and properly.. you don't want your son jumping on a bike and his gears don't work and he crashes again because an inexperienced person fixed it also look at my photo I'm on a bike
