No, you are right about me not wanting the bike anymore isn't the shops fault. But after they had the trike for six weeks, telling me the problem was an internal one, promising me to order the part to fix it, then saying that they could not find the part. Then putting shims-spacers on the tranny saying that it was a temporary fix. Having the Service Writer calling it a (lost cause) and asking me if I want to trailer it home and charging me $375 IS. Oh, the service writer told me that he was giving me a break in the price of 10 hours labor, by charging me half price.
it's times like this that i really thank god for my mechanical aptitude.
i knew nothing about a scooter when i first got mine, but i learned a lot in a very short time because i simply couldn't find anyone to work on it, and the ones that did, wanted to charge me an outrageous price for doing so.
the only thing i will have a shop do to my scoot is to change the tires, all the other mechanical work i've done myself
this chinese rides are really pretty simple to work on, a lot simpler than your car.
my best advice is to find a good service manual for your engine and tranny and read it a couple of times.
fortunately for me, my ride has the honda 244cc clone and the service manual was readily available for it.
i feel for you, but the only thing you can do is suck it up and pay the price.
before scootdawg went down the tubes, you probably could have had an answer to your problems shortly after posting it.
