This service is so pathetic and I see this sort of thing too often. Go back to the 1st post[the original story by TK] and notice how the mechanic wanted petrol from the client to clean the filter. Was this a client with less knowledge, that petrol-cleaned filter would have gone back into that quad WITHOUT filter oil and the engine would have been wrecked in no time.
AVOID THAT SHOP!!!!!

Let us get a few facts straight. This will be my first and last mail. Tyrekicker called and arranged to bring his two quads in for repair on Wednesday. He didnt pitch. He then arrived on Thursday saying he was in a hurry for them. He spoke to Jason, our mechanic. His exact instuctions were to get them both starting and running properly. He did not ask us to sevice them, we did not service them and we did not charge him for a service, thus no oil change and no filter clean. Bear in mind that the quads are Chinese 90cc Adly's of dubious quality, bought for about R3000 each. What he asked, we did, we got them both starting and running properly. If this fact is in dispute, we welcome the inspection of an independant professional. It has come to my attention that Tk and an associate spent some time attempting to fix the quads themselves, sadly unsuccessfully. When he expressed his dissatisfaction, I offered to collect the quads personally and rectify all problems, this he refused to allow, I told him that I would come to his house after work on Friday night and bring Jason along. This we duly did, Jason offered to fix anything he was unhappy with there. After some minor setting, Tk, with his not insignificant bulk, proceded to ride both quads up and down his street for about 20 minutes. Bearing in mind that these quads are designed to carry 30 kg kids, they performed admirably. He was still unhappy (there is no pleasing some people) I would have been happy to reduce the price on the job, but he demanded to only pay for the battery and 2 spare spark plugs, this is grossly unreasonable as will did work on them, and rectify the problems. We would like to encourage anal pratts not to support us. Far more worrying is the feeding frenzy that followed this incident. An attack one one dog is an attack on all. What are you, the Muscateers? To the induvidual that wants to take me for tea. Is this you personally, or do you want to enlist the support of some buddies? Call me asap on 0123427474, ask for Brett, with time and venue, Ill be coming alone.  Come on guys, grow up and get a life!!!!

Suppose, maybe TK is those of the anal costumers, but why did you let this go so far Brett, you were here from the start, and instead of resolving this you did your bussiness some serious harm and only give your side now?

Feeding frenzy? you aint see nothing yet. I suppose we are not grown up to do business with you.

An attack on one dog is an attack on all..... you bloody right mate!!

Hey, Brett is alive! One or 2 quick remarks. If you have such a pro setup, couldn't u scan the job sheet where Tyre told you to get them going? O ja, and insinuaing that someone is fat (whether he is or not) is looking for shit. Finally, if you guys didn't do that much to the bikes then you're FUCKING expensive hey.

Brett a bit late to explain your side of the story  :laughing4:I have been following this thread and you have had ample opportunity to explain your side, this is a poor attempt on your behalf! If you feel you were in the right you should not have had an issue commenting early on in the thread....however it is normally a guilty party who keep quite for a long time.

Nou ja toe, slaat my dood met 'n Huisgenoot!

If that is your idea of clearing the air Brett, you've failed grossly.
Looks more like a personal attack using insipid below the belt sarcastic tactics by referring to the fact that the man is overweight.
Pissoff with that shit boet.
What kind of nonsense is this referring to the quads as "Chinese 90cc Adly's of dubious quality, bought for about R3000 each"
So what? Are you judging him for the shit quality stuff he brings for you fix?
That's also no excuse not to get it right.
There's a lot of that shit standing for sale on your floor as I recall.
With your attitude you've just ensured that none of these "anal pratts" will support your concern.
You're right, an attack one one dog is an attack on all.
We have grown up and have got a few buck to spend but I for one will spend my money elsewhere.

So long.

Mmm, very unpleasant incident. Unfortunately Brett shot himself in the foot. ...by the way, today is 1 year since the BP incident, and the CEO is no more.... think harder boet.... next time you may get it right.

Brett, anal pratts are possible future customers, but not this one!  The customer is KING, whether you like it or not. 

Creating single logon aliases instead of a reasonably worded contradiction of Tyre Kicker's post, as soon as possible after his initial post would have had an impact on the forum members.  But you chose to keep quiet and get the aliases to talk about your wonderful service. 

And a threatening email???  What were you thinking?  You shot yourself in the foot.

Then you come with an aggressively worded post, 5 days later, slamming us for taking sides - what did you expect??  And, yes, we did see that you were looking at this post on the day it was initially posted - why not reply then?

Don't patronise the Wild Dogs, we are not idiots.

(BTW. We are grown up and the life I have does not include your company, which is likely the case for most of the WDs.)

Although I enjoyed your response as it is always nice to see the other side of the pancake (no matter how flat you bake a pancake, it will always have two side), just a correction.  Adly quads are made in Taiwan by HerChee Industrial, not China and have a reputation for much better quality than Chinese cheapies.  They are, in fact, OEM suppliers of ArcticCat and Bombadier quads as well.
