It's actually quite amusing to read the comments on the motordiams in here. Most pple must kerna bad experience big time, otherwise wouldn't sound so bitter.

I know how it is when you walk into a shop and they look at you if you can't actually afford. Damn! feels like walking into a branded boutique. Even if you can afford it, the attitude just make you turn your heels.

If any 'blacklisted' motordiam lau ban is reading all this, they should look at it constructively and improve their service rather than getting upset at pple bad-mouthing them.

Hehe....just my thoughts...I get very pissed off with bad service and in turn I just gotta pissed them back...hehe

For fellow riders living in the west side ...

 

Would recommend Hua Chin Trading motor

 

Located at 50, Bukit Batok Street 23, Midview Building ...

 

Tel: 68966619

 

Honest and friendly mechs around. But have to wait a little when more bikes doing their servicing.

 

Boss Ah Koon down-to-earth chap. Honest. But seem to be a little busy all the time, so he won't have time to listen to unnecessities :D

 

Parts, oils and standard servicings seemed reasonbly priced. Changed battery there at $30 ... at least not like another motor shop who chop $80 for a new and "better" battery as mentioned in the posts earlier.

 

Once, i waited for more than 2 hours waiting to replace my fairings. 45 min coz fairing still haven't come. Another 75 mins waiting coz all mechs occupied. In the end, the boss ah koon himself came to fix the fairings by himself. Gave those blue chromed screws or watever u call fixed onto the fairing w/o extra charges. Even gave those michelin stickers that would cost few bucks outside w/o charges.

 

Changed tyres at his place too. I can even safely pay in advance w/o having to worry that he would "claim" i havent pay for the tyres. ( Coz the tyre has to be pre-ordered so i juz pay in advance, scared account no $$ :D ) Of course i would x2 confirm with him and receipts with me ...

 

As for purchase of bikes ... this i can't guarantee they have the "lowest" in town too ... but from the stuffs i do there .. like knocking my brake lever out .. tightening screws and real minor things, u can assure the mechs there wont charge u discriminately. Coz this kinda minor stuffs mostly dont have to oblige to pay ... unless the minor stuffs add up to alot ...

Went there to make some exchanges of K & N filter, rear shocks and some other stuff from my friend's bike to mine. Eddy sounds quite friendly and offered to help us change lots of things, even those minor ones where we can DIY easily. Decided to change my engine oil as well. Did a better job of it comparing to the previous motor shop that i always visit. Mechanics were pretty friendly.

But i heard that it's possible to recharge the battery. Not too sure about that. Cost me 170.

Agree.... I need to que abt 30 min even on Tuesday! But over all I like the boss... a very friendly guy. His worksmanship also not bad. Then his servicing is quite cheap. I heard from my frd that the CDC instustor and TP let him service their personal bike too.

... now, since there are SOOOO many ppl recommending this place, i guess we split up into groups. Group A goes only on Mondays, Group B on Tuesdays, and so on... to reduce the 'traffic jam'... :D

 

anyway, to those ppl who are taking this seriously... I AM ONLY JOKING...
