    Hi fellow victorians.
    Where would it be good to take the 640 adv to analise some sort of noise i have and if needed to repair it whilst i am at work?
    I am looking at going to bolton but my schedule might state otherwise.
    Any recommendations now that Jeffries gone belly up?

    Thanks, i had a chat with Tim a few months back before they stopped working Sat. will see if he can but i know bolton can for sure take the bike on a very short notice.
    Last time i chatted to tim it was 3-4 weeks notice.

    I don't have a Kato myself but Boltons seem to be well respected amongst the Macedon ranges dirt bike mob out here.

    Won't see me again: I phoned for an appointment to fit four tyres to four loose rims; was quoted a price and made the considerable hike there to arrive on tme (at their convenience), only to be told that the quoted price had gone up 50% in the meantime.
    I have no time for arrogance or price-gouging - and told Max & Brian at BikeMart that Tim's attitude did not deserve their recommendations.
    I had my tyres fitted around the corner at the PS-Yamaha place by Glenn - at short notice, on time, a perfect job from a polite, friendly & helpful professional. Now they've moved, I will happily travel the extra distance to deal with him again.
    Tim might be good with KTMs - but he's a prick at customer service, IMHO.
