Brisbane Mechanic southside?

G'day all lookin for a reliable mechanic for services and tune up work on the south side of Brisbane (around Springwood Logan area) . I have an 07 KLE500 and a 09 250 ninja would like to get log book services done and mods to my KLE! Any help appreciated as I've had a gut full of the clowns at Kawasaki!!!!!

Cheers Mick

Good Mechanic

Keater,
Good reliable mechanics are hard to find and are as scarce as hens teeth
I am from a mechanical background but not of extended mechanical experience on motorbikes.

I spoke to a Tom Lay of MMM Motorcycle Mechanical 1/14 Moss Street Slacks Creek P: 07 3290 3767 this guy answered my questions in a professional manner and judgeing from his hands it would appear that he does a fair bit of mechanical work. The answer I received from Tom was relevant to my question and I was impressed with his helpful attitude.
I have no other connection with this guy. He was recommended to me by the sales guy(an x MC mechanic) from KTM in Moss St if this dosnt help give me a call......details in the Biker Friendly threads.

Kind regards
Champ

Cheers

I went and saw Tom and he was very helpful, had isuue with the new ninja having a flat spot down low. I rang Kawasaki and they said it was just normal so told them I'll get another mechanic to look at it, now it runs sweet. Tom took for a test ride then played with it for ten minutes and said see ya later, didnt even charge after asking what I owed him
