    If you send me your normal email, I have taken some close ups that will help you re-assemble the lift I'll send you. It is too much of a pain to do it via the PM's.

    You will not find a very sympathetic view on paying the toll the dealer demands for service. I've run into the same attitudes in the BMW owner circle too.
    Not wanting to spend 2k on a service is why my BMW is partially disassembled on my garage floor this winter.

    The coolest mechanic I've run into told me he realized the market for parts was so vast and wide open there was no effin' point in gouging people for parts they brought in themselves. He runs brian billings racing.
    Dealer service is a sore spot for me, the Honda place use to charge me a fee for any parts they didn't have bought from them, even though it was frequently bought from the same Honda distributor that they were buying it from. Then there was the lift fee 35-50 bucks and a whole raft of other fees that had nothing to do with actually fixing the bike.
