    I think a name and shame is in order here, just to give guys a heads up if they are thinking of buying from this dealer, at least they will know to make a thorough check before buying or riding away. And a shout out to Triumph M40 (Hughenden) for helping you out

    Put bike into bike shop to have immobilizer removed asked them to bleed brakes to see if they could get them any crisper. went to collect and we chatted about what he had done told me he checked the pistons seals and pushed in pistons as part of his process's (mate was there also) this was next day.
    So decided to check over torque on caliper nuts , as I had planned a holiday at end of week, 3 days touring.
    Three bolts over tight one spinning in hole -this is after I drove it home - pulled it out and not only is thread kapput a heli-coil has appeared from nowhere. later find reservoir retaining bolt needed re threaded also , even the bleed nipples were way to tight
    Called and he denied everything but for the sake of his "reputation" he said it would take him an hour to fix take it up I refused and he offered the money equivalent (think he wanted to rethread caliper-then what? drill the fork) .

    I have no idea .I told him he could have bike all week when i put it in, so he could have fixed it properly, I wouldnt have known.One of these situations where you begin to doubt your remembering correctly I was clad to have my mate to check the facts with.

    Yes where??
    The way to go nowadays, if you get no recourse is social media, ie here , their Facebook page or their Twitter whatever! I would call it doing a public service. Show them the link and if they think the accusations are unjust let them explain why! Can't be fairer than that.
