OK, so it's a long story, but I will sum it up
About 3 months ago, I had both sprockets and a new chain put on by my local (3 year history) shop as I have had multiple issues with chains in the past. I wanted to pay the premium to get it done right.
Fast forward 1000 miles (a month) took it into the shop because I was having to tighten it WAY too often. Told them something was wrong with the chain and they proceeded to take links out, move the wheel back to the first mark on the swingarm and start anew.
Took it in three weeks ago and 2500 miles (total distance) later to show them how i have moved it all the way back out again. They rubbed their chins and told me that the chain was having a problem and that it would be fixed right. Order new chain and rear sprocket.
drop my bike off at the end of the week for a quick one hour job, come back later to find no work done, but talked to the guys and they told me that my front sprocket needed to replaced (of which i had expressed concern) and that this would need to be ordered... along with a sprocket that actually fit my bike. recommended no riding as all where in poor condition.
-fast forward to today (2 weeks, 1 holiday weekend later)-
Went in to find new sprockets and chain on in perfect working order... and a bill for over $300. new sprockets, chain, and 100 bucks labor. Censors get out your red pens.... WTF!!!
- I told my shop guy that I paid him for a warranty or so that I would have a fighter in the ring with parts suppliers in just such instances.
- That it should not be different than a defective Metzler he warrantied for me THIS year.
Needless to say, I am in disbelief that he has pulled this on me. I have spent over 3000 there this year on various projects... I just don't get it.
Am I out of line here? Can my people give me some feedback/ammunition for when I go back in to settle this?
The bike is in my garage before you guys ask
but it is a small town
