I used to use a mom and pops local shop for tire changing, I know the owner. All was well for a while. I had a flat on the RC a few months ago, I had taken a corner and picked something up, well the bead of the rim was nicely scratched when I got the bike back home. So I decided to have the rims painted silver to match the bike since the rear was f'd up anyways. I had seen a RC with this done at the stealer so I took 'em to the same guy that did those. Well I had my friend that owns the shop pull the tires off and he scratched the rear rim even more. He was acting like it was a real PITA to pull 2 tires one day and took it out on my I guess. So I made some calls and found out there is one guy at the stealer that won't scratch them when replacing tires. So I have the rims painted, they looked awesome, dropped them off at the stealer to remount the tires (1 new tire, 1 existing). When I dropped them off I told them to use stick on weights. What does the guy do? He uses the clip on weights. The guy has been changing my friends tires for years and not one thing scratched so I figured he might have put tape underneath or something. Well I just had the rear tire swapped and had the service guy make sure to use stick on weights this time. I pick my wheel up today and the clip weight f*cking took off all kinds of paint when he removed it. Why in the f*ck would you do this? If you were a mechanic in a shop, and people were specifically asking for you to change their tires because you do good work, why would you do this? I can 1/2 way understand a stock black wheel, the clip weight won't do too much damage but freshly painted wheels, doesn't matter what color, I 100% would have used stick on weights. Hell, go to a racetrack and find someone using clip weights, you won't find them. So I get pissed and drill the service guy, he gets the mechanic. The mechanic then informs me that he uses those 95% of the time, and that stick on weights aren't as good, and goes on to say how much better the clip weights are, I'm thinking b.s. He just didn't give a f*ck. I can't for the life of me understand why service in this industry is so f*cking poor, I read stuff online all the time about getting the run around/getting f*cked by some idiot. Hell I'd pay a pay a premium price to have some things done if I could get them done right. There isn't a place in this state that I would trust to swap forks, change tires, perform anything whatsoever on my bike, sans the damn inspection we have to get every year. F*ck I'm pissed, it's not some little paint that scratched off, it's the principle. F*ck!
