Title: RAD or Clearwater for Technical service?
Post by: Rolling Stone on June 09, 2012, 08:26:33 am
My bike is still under warranty and needs a service as well as a couple of warranty issues sorted.So far I have very little experience with Clearwater although they are about 10min closer to home. RAD has given me good service once before. Where would you recommend I take the bike. only comment based on prior experience please.

Got my bike back from Clearwater on Saturday, gotta say, I was pretty impressed.

Between them though, it's 6 of one and half a dozen of the other... they are both working bloody hard to impress!  :)

If you are having a 640 serviced, then  Frank is your man, he used to be at RAD but has moved to Clearwater, will give them a try next service.

 Took my 2012 690 to Clearwater for a warranty issue - they worked overtime and 2 days later the snag was sorted - the other shops could not faultfind the issue. i did not pay a cent, just spend some money in that orange candy store, i felt like a kid again!

currently I am not to happy with Clearwater.My son's little 50 has been there for almost 6 weeks. All started well with regular feedback and then all I got every time I enquired was we are working on it. according to the last feedback the parts arrived more than 3 weeks ago. fark at this rate the kid will outgrow the bike by the time it is fixed.
