an chong is a guy who is very good in troubleshooting. he is unlike other bike shops in order to earn money then suggest to change these change that and at the end the problem was still not solved.

 

he is very honest in doing bussiness and that earns a lot of appriase by fellow bikers.

The more I ride my SV, the less I care about going to the annual bike show and looking at new,

or expensive, or exotic machinery. I'm continuing to mod my bike into exactly what I want it,

and enjoying every mile I put on it.

Seemed like on a personal level but free to comment or voice ure opinions. Some might encounter the opposite so to each his own. From what i c abt 90%-95% good comments. Rest is just minor remarks abt slow service, too crowded, long waiting time. Ever tot of coming back later time? Too crowded means their service has been good but u may say workmanship level drop a bit as they hurry to fix other bike. So come back when its less crowded lah lest u have emergency and need it to be done fast, go to other shop to do the servicing/maintenane and c if they give better service even thou its less crowded. Just my 2 cents a well. Price is usually market price, sometimes up sometimes down. All depends on availability of the parts.

ya his price is not the cheapest, but at least u wont kena carrot or he tell u to change unneceessary parts

 

i m not rich guy so usually i get his quote then i counter check wif the wholesalers the price, if jus abit more n the labour cost is justified i let him earn

 

if not i get the parts and DIY, dun forget he is still a business man n he got this own sales target to earn

 

u cant expect any bikeshops to be ur daddy n everytime let u run off wif a profitless deal

 

got a few times cheong saw i change the parts myself n make noise lor, i m bery frank to him one, i tell him the wholesaler price and i tell him i did myself, of cos i also make noise back at his profit la, but i tell him frankly i didnt go other shop do, i also tell him if u wan me to let u do everything tell SAF to raise my allowance 10 times i everytime will let him do lor, after tat usually he is ok la

 

but of cos some small stuff like levers and chain all those things, give n take

If u wan servicing or mainly troubleshooting, thats the best place to be. Wat not to do is to bring parts from ah boy and go there tell him fix for u or worst use their tools to fix it yaself.

Tt's right, Ah Chong's motto: if it ain't broke, don't fix it; sama sama some M'sian motordiams. S'pore needs more honest guys like Ah Chong.

 

Actually, I quite pity him, c him sometimes 'get bullied' by customers. Confession: I also sometimes bully him, like raising my voice lor. Sometimes, it's like tt 1 lah, when u need to dig deep into ur pocket, sure buay song (exasperated), so vent frustration @ him lor. He'll also vent frustration back @ u if he's familiar with u.

 

Nevertheless, if I were to bring my business to motordiam, I will opt 4 him.

 

Oh, btw, I'm not his employee, Ah Beng, ah. :lol:

First time going to Planet to troubleshoot some problems.

Due to the intermittent of my problem, the rattling sound was not able to reproduce on warm up engine.

 

But Ah Chong/Beng was quite accurate to diagnose it as worn tensioners based on my spoken experience. Replace them after putting my bike a day in the hospital.

 

Their customer service is much better than those more reputated bike shops which mainly service big bikes.

 

But quite scary to see them placing screws, nuts, bolts all over the place without a container. :cheeky:

oh!

that was your black VFR.

I was there yesterday morning. We tried listening to your engine with the airbox open. It was very difficult to replicate the sound you mentioned except for a loud clacking sound which Ah-Beng mentioned was your timing chain.

Damn nice bike. Black and simple.

went down there yesterday, to get my horn fixed. the connectors were shooting sparks when the horn was sounded and it was giving a funny sound so i went to a shop in BB 1st as it was nearer to my place... they said the horn spoil, inside spoil have to buy new horn then they offer me their horn.. :nono:

 

then went to another shop near my place at jurong, they said the same thing, horn spoilt..

 

so i thought, ok travel abit go to planet, i stay at jurong west btw.. they just tightened the connection btwn the connectors and the sparks vanished and my horn sounded as good as new again! :thumb:

It's your damn bike, wash it yourself! You rinse your own mouth after you eat, don't you?
