Just a personal note on Albert Motor. I got both my 2 bikes from that place. SP & CBR400RRR. The shop charges a little on the high side.

:sweat:

But some of the mechanics are competent. The top mechanic there is Ah Seng. In my opinion, he's very competent, quite knowledgable, very helpful & doesn't chop people. He has helped me in quite a few situations.

:smile:

Just a few days ago, me asked him to change my NC29 headers to NC23 headers (my end-can is already NC23). Change meter light bulb, fix choke cabke problem, lower forks by 3 to 4mm. The headers plus the workmanship for all the above he only charge me $110. I find that's very cheap.

:smile:

In the future, i would recommend Albert Motor to others, just take someone with experience with u.

:smile:

Ride fast but safe... Skills matters most... the slow ONE... I WAS TOO SLOW at 1min 50.9sec :D

 

Past rides: Quite a few and different types

I Think about it some time now...

 

OK first thing we must make clear is that there is different types and levesl of "good". For example 1 company maybe their prices are good, staff is friendly but their mechanic cannot make it one.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

So we make a standard format. You can only post commendations. Format something like this:

 

Date: Month/year

Shop Name: Name of Shop

Address: Address of shop

Phone Number: phone number of shop

 

What service/product did you purchase?

Bike/maintainence/other service (i.e. insurance etc)/ other products (boxes etc). (details here, if you want to add)

 

Level of service: 1-10 (details here, if you want to add)

Level of knowledge: 1-10 (details here, if you want to add)

Level of value for money: 1-10 (details here, if you want to add)

How happy are you overall? 1-10

 

What makes this shop commendable? (give details..)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

We make this new thread a "sticky".

At the end of 6 or 12 months or whatever, we look at the comments and maybe Andy can create an Award: SBF Recommended Award.

Very good boss. He actually went down to the shop for me to collect my bike during nights off at 9pm! The paperwork was a little on the slow side (4 days for the transfer). Very honest, no problem with bike after I got it. Stock could go 140kph! Haven't tried the servicing yet. The boss gave me new alphabets for the rear numberplate when one of it fell off.

A respectable shop. The shop manager give various option on ways to save your money. The manager is friendly and trust worthy. Call the shop 1 time and ask for the price. He give the price without any changes when I go down to the shop.

The salesperson onli keen to entertain u before u buy the bike, after tat when u go back 2 the shop 4 servicin etc, they will try 2 go hide here n there, like I am a total stranger. Even if u talk 2 them, they onli entertain u a few words then find reasons to go away.

Besides tat, everythin u ask before u buy the bike is always YES but after tat u ask again will become NO!!!

Very good boss. He is very knowlegable and explained to me every detail of the bike. Show no attitude. The lady boss is also very friendly. And normally for 2nd hand bikes other shops don't give bike manual to the customer but they did. You can also rebate back your interest if you decided to pay finish your installments earlier. Most bike shops don't do that. Would really recommend all brathers and sister here to try going there, you won't regret. Overall a very satisfied customer. :smile:

If you consider dexing, You would find that they work the same like Mah and Lee's motor. I have been suspecting for a long time if they have the same boss.

NEVER go Dexing if I were you. I would prefer Looi's
