without malice or prejudice
I picked up my bike from where it had been 'stored' for 10months.
I call the local new yamaha dealer on hawthorne, bike was out that way. I say my carbs need some work. 'yeah uhm we don't like to take those, yeah even after 6-7hours of labor we can't get em to run right' no seriously, thats what he said. I actually said
'well thats fk'n confidence inspiring' so i end up calling 'motorsports world' they've been there forever. explain that the front cylinder is not firing, had gotten progressively worse over the last few summers, now shooting raw gas. 'ok no problem 2,4hrs of labor' So i get it there 1 week before victoria day long weekend.
they call say theres a plethora of problems, half are not important. they say one of the front brake calliper pistons won't retract.. and it was squeeking a little rolling upto lights, so i say ok.
Day before long weekend they call 'uhm yeah we can't get pressure in your in brakes, never seen anything like it. we're going to leave it over night maybe airs in there, but if that don't do it you;ll need a master cylinder rebuild'
at this point im like uhmm yeah odd considering i've never had anyproblems with the brakes...so no bike over long weekend..
go to pick it up the following saturday the 28th - they said it was ready. front brake lever is completely spongey no grip till its almost at the bar. but both cylinders were firing & i didn't think they'd let it roll out if it were unsafe - lol. I complain of brakes, say i'll play with the adjuster & bring it back if i have no results, service guy said he'd make a note of it. I just want to ride my bike -I pay them over $1000 bux. it was 10 mins before Closing time.
So I'm maybe 10 blocks down the road and i realize just how much of my back brake im using cause my front had next to no pressure Oh And My Front Cylinder Cuts out..
perfect should've totally expected it in fact, but still it bums me out..
so wiggling my fron ignition wire around sunday i get some sparc i decide to take it from my gf's to a store 20 blocks away, was a nice day. so a block before we get into the stores parking lot im like why is the bike deceling so quick. by the time i entered the lot I almost Dumped it turning into a spot Because My FRONT BRAKES WERE NOW COMPLETEY SEIZED ...
So got caa there with a flat bed.
by the time the truck got there they unseized, but i wasn't risking it. get it back to their shop. no key slot or exhaust ports, so i had to drive today to drop off the key. I keep my calm even after hearing awesome things like 'well we told you there were problems with that cylinder' --yeah!? show me on the bill - show me the compression test!, show me your estimate to fix this problem your talking about, etc..
-bike shop does work on front brakes
-not even what it went in for
-brakes SEIZE 1 day later, almost causing a crash! needed to be towed.
