Mototech here in Beccles.
He's a top bloke and has kept his business going even though his current kidney transplant has failed, meaning he has to go for dialysis three times a week, and he had menengitis and was in hospital for several months! He works every day that he isn't at the hospital and is currently hoping to move to the old CJ Ball site in Hales. He is always very busy and I can see why from the quality of his work, that's why he needs the larger premesis. He's got all the gear to do tyre changes right up to a complete rebuild, and his hourly rate is only 35. His site lists his set servicing prices - a big valve check service (plus he checks everything on the bike) is only 325.

Russel motors in Clapham Junction, South London. http://www.russellmotors.co.uk/index.html

Ordered a specific front tyre. They called back next day with the tyre. Arranged a ride in ride out fitting for 1pm that day. Done in 45 minutes and a coffee later. 90.

They do MOT's, servicing etc. Nice people too.

Just had my bike MOT'd at ABC Motorcycles on Dereham Road in Norwich. Although no actual work was done to the bike the owner Andy was very friendly and complimentary about the bike - no hesitation in recommending them on the basis of what I saw

Helicoil Fixes And Seized Bolt/Nut Removal

I managed to strip my oil tank plug thread on my SM-T at the weekend, there was a slight cross thread done months and months ago I guess and even through I was very careful this time around it stripped when I was tightening tight with a torque wrench.

I rung around and asked some people in the business and got supplied with details for a guy who solely does helicoil fixes and the removing of seized bolts etc for all the garages in the area (Delmonte / Robinsons etc etc). Alex is his name, mobile #: 07776 145 373

Turned out to be a great guy, I rang him Saturday morning and explained what I'd done and it turns out he is into classic bikes as a hobby I rang him back a little later to ask him when he could fit me in now that I had the oil tank off the bike and he said come straight over...15 minutes later and I had one perfectly fitted helicoil for 15 that in all reality is 10 times better than the cheese thread that was there before!

He can travel too like he does with the garages, so if you have an engine block issue that can only be fixed on site he can do that too, he has all the gear...this is what he does all day every day for work so he ain't gonna get it wrong!!

His business card is attached, couldn't recommend him enough to get you out of a bind!

Anyone who is looking for fitted tyres in the Norwich area that is happy to bring in their wheels loose check out Havers Tyres (off Drayton Road), they did me a great deal on my Rocket's 240 Avon Cobra back tyre....164 fitted....Lings Watton wanted 215 (40 additional charge for Rocket) and even HMT (an old favourite before management change) wanted 188 after major haggling!
