My 10,000 mile service at chatt ran me@ 130.00, because I took the remainder oil from 1st change back to them and they happily used it to top me off. A great bunch of people to deal with, bikers that are not out to rip anybody off. Sold me my bike for @ 1500.00 less than Castle would, and without the attitude.
Castle is where I got caught in an emergency, and had to have a rear tire put on, NOW!!!
Castle charged me 337.00 to put a Metzler on the rocket, and still had an attitude about it. NOT the guys turning wrenches, I dont have a problem with them, but the guys at the desks have always been voids surrounded by sphincters every time I have walked in.
I wish I knew of a shop close by like Flip has found, but I do technical maintenance on cnc machining equipment for a living, so when my warranty runs out, I will do my own work, with a service manual of course. Til then, I will ride to chatt whenever possible.
Gotta get a front tire soon......bacroads over Monteagle mountain.....YESSSS!
Was that Super Street Customs in Ring-gold? I purchased a Rocket 3 Tourer there this past Monday. I was at Castle the previous weekend where I did a test ride on their Rocket. We couldn't get together and I got mine $1650 cheaper in Chattanooga. Sound familiar? The salesman at Castle did do a f/u call but didn't budge on price, he just wanted to see if I had changed my mind. W.L. at Super Street quoted me the 500 mile service at $240- ouch. I may do that but after that I'll service mine if there are no issues. Just so happens I live less than 10 miles from Monteagle and it's a pleasant drive to Chattanooga. Where did you find a good service manual? Thanks..
