Since I cannot tell from recent posts of what bike you speak, I am assuming a B3 800 series which requires tank removal to get to the battery. I am mechanical and I have the tools and I have the same bike and I could not get the tank off that bike and get the battery out in under an hour. Putting in the new battery and reinstalling the tank would take another 45 minutes. Then it's off to do the brakes.

It is obvious to me that you have not tried to disassemble your Brutale 800RR.

Please put your bike model and year in your signature line.

I replaced my battery without fully removing the tank. The tank can be lifted high enough to R&R the battery without disconnecting any hoses or wires. The attached pic shows the rear of the tank supported by tie-down straps attached with tie-wraps through the two rear tank mount holes. The straps are hung from a hook in a ceiling joist. A towel across the front of the tank prevents paint damage.

@Mario Landavoz: The point of the conversation was to discuss dealer labor charges for such maintenance. There are many ways to skin a cat. Some are messier than others.

Most bike shops, at least here in the US, have set labor charges based on a time schedule to perform certain evolutions. If you have a skilled and priced mechanic, then he makes money for the shop by completing things in a shorter time, but charging the Standard Rate. Conversely, some mechanics may take longer thus losing money. It should balance out for the shop.

There is very little ala carte work done at a licensed dealer.

There are those on here who have neem factory mechanics and will chime it; but, I understand this is the structure.

No need to remove the tank at all losen it up is all that’s required and then a lift from the rear gives enough clearance to remove and install.

Bike is the one in my original post 🙂

Silent, most unlike you to skimps on the details 🙂

and then after 2 commutes, the most horrendous noise from the chain. gone tight apparently. Again I think this is down to not being run for two months.

The knock on effects for the supply chain being absolutely shocking is appalling. And it all hits the wallet of the customer in the end.

Yeah - thanks a lot MV.

Great bike - when it works.
Crap everything else.

@Digital Still no location in your profile and no bike in your signature (no signature at all, so that kinda goes without saying).

I don't want to have to scroll back and read the entire thread to find this info (I'm lazy).

What chain are you talking about? The drive chain shouldn't suffer from lack of use, unless it has rusted from lack of preventive maintenance.

As for supply chain, your dealer is a big part of that. Too many parts supply problems are from the dealer's end and not necessarily the factory. I saw that even with Japanese brands in my career.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

No worries. i'm not asking for advice on chain - i'm venting. I'm allowed to because i've paid through the nose to thanks.

the chain chap - you know the thing that drives your bike... If i can't turn it over or move the thing because it wouldn't start to get it to the garage to get the tyre changed to get it moving then bloody yes. it is is because it cant be used. I lube my chain thanks and it would have continued to be it if it wasn't off the road for 3 months.

It was the factory. It wasn't the dealer. However, I am not able to look at their parts ordering portal so can only go by my point of entry. The dealer. i can only go by what they say and they led me to believe it was the factory.

I pay good money for my bike and I feel short changed that it was unable to be moved for 3 months. I originally mentioned to the dealer about the sprag last april. It was only end of Jan that it actually got fixed.

So at the moment, 1k lighter just for the work because in my book a lot of the crap I've had to pay for was ultimately avoidable if it had been able to be turned over and the dealer/factory network weren't as shoddy as they actually are.

That doesn’t even factor in the cost for a bike that couldn’t be used, insurance, tax, public transport, tickets to dealership and back, and the fact that I nearly missed my sons birthday because they didn’t sort it properly. All it it’s been a useless lump of metal that’s cost nearer 2k for being sat in my garage doing sweet fa for no fault of my own.

So ffs, you’ll have to excuse the fact that I haven’t put a bloody signature on my profile.

As for bike it's in the first post along with a video .click first - its easy. I do it all the time in place of moaning.

vent over.

Sounds like your dealer has let you down..... where in the world is this lousy dealer? can't tell cause there is no location in your profile.

And the drive chain doesn't go bad sitting still unless it was left wet and un-oiled the entire time. Lubed chains don't rust. So what did this crappy dealer do to your chain???

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
