PostSubject: It's not Pete Roper......   Wed Apr 08, 2015 2:28 am

Been trying to find someone to service my Tenni.

I just do not know anything about Blades in Swindon [ 30 miles from me ] and being a big dealership was unsure about them using 10/60 oil etc,etc.

So I was looking for someone local to go to with some Guzzi knowledge. Started looking and find this business 3 miles from me. Looking good. Cool

sidle up to him, Blue, and have a discussion regarding your needs. After about 10 minutes you will be happy or not - go from there...

Take a run over and see what kind of bloke he is you should be able to judge if he is bullshiter or not.

Ask him what tooling he has for service requirements like TPS re-set and trim zeroing. Then ask him if he can adjust the idle speed as you think it's too high. If he says yes, walk away. If he explains that it is a non adjustable parameter and if your bike isn't idling at about 1250rpm then it needs tuning it probably means that he knows what he's talking about.
