Needs a bit of work.

Post by SuperHol » 11 Apr 2015, 09:02

Hey, wondering if anyone can help or has any suggestions on where to take my z750 that isn't gonna cost me the world. It needs a bit of tlc, I've been a bit busy of late and have let rather a few things slip, even little things like tightening my chain.
It needs a new front tyre (possibly rear too), new brake pads and the left fork seal is leaking..quite bad now and possibly could do with stripping down for a damn good clean.
Any help would be greatfully appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

what area would you prefer?

if you have a rainy day or two, they're all jobs that can be managed with some basic tools and a bit of research online if your willing to give it a go yourself. its quite rewarding getting stuck in ...what you need doing isnt too difficult with a bit of research and advice from these guys. if ive manged it all, anybody can as i brake literally every bolt and bike related thing i touch haha

I have no tools and not a lot of time. I work stupid hours and its my only mode of transport or at least has been up until the last couple of weeks (can now use my gfs). I've just moved to St.Helens but I'm not concerned about taking it elsewhere as I'd just like it sorting for peace of mind..and safety of course :)

you poor thing ;) haha.

TST tyres seems to have a good rep on the forum which is in Culcheth... they should be able to sort your tyres out for a decent price and Mr Pig's in manchester is mentioned a lot for the rest of the work.

http://www.tst-tyres.co.uk/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
http://www.mrpigs.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

ive not used either so cant personally recommend, however this lot seem to rate them both based on other threads. may be worth waiting for some more experienced replies, see if theres anything more local to you/cheaper.
