beef

are you willing to help??

Recommended Posts

following on from a few topics on here, and on a couple of other forums i am on, i am going to start a ''ARE YOU WILLING TO HELP'' thread.

i have read a few topics about people needing things done to their vehicle but due to the owners lack of ability or knowledge or confidence then they have either put the work off and made it worse or sent it to a garage to get the work done.

for example one of the guys on a off roading forum i am on wanted to fit a lift kit to his car, springs, spacers, new shocks. i have done it and he is only a few miles away, he was quoted just shy of £400 to get it fitted.

after some discussion i said i was happy to help him fit it if he came to me with the car and all the bits.

it took us two hours to do it, the lad learned how to do it, understands how it all goes together. or if repairs are needed then he knows how ect. and he saved £400. he gave me a crate of beers, which i didnt ask for.

so basically post if you are willing to help some one local to you with their bike problems, and i mean hands on help not just advice online.

all you gotta do is say where you are and what you are willing to do.

beef, oldham manchester, general maintenance and modifications, replacing of parts. got a garage and a few general tools.

Why wasn't this thread started a week ago lol? I have a basic knowledge but probably nothing useful. It would be good though to shadow/observe to learn for myself.

I'll help out anyone in need.(apart from VFR's engine wise as a right pain in the arse) I'll service a bike once after that I'll expect him/her to do it them selves, other general stuff & help no problem can do most bikes fairly new to 2 strokes but apart from the engine (still learning) they are basically the same as 4 strokes.
