2000 Shadow 750 ACE Carb

I am writing this to get the opinions of about a service I am having a Honda Motorcycle dealership in NC. I have a 2000 Honda 750 motorcycle that I dropped off for more than three ago.

The following items in need of resolution:

Carb (

2 hours)

Oil Change (

.5 hours) ( I do not why this would be so expensive and not a rate)

Brake handle ( .5 hours)

Parts (carb kit x2, cylinder, oil, filter) they added jets)

For items I called and received an estimate for each item is listed above. I understand are just that… an estimate of how it usually takes.

My original estimates totaled $250 and I added about for any incidental in my planning.

The following is a on my attempts to get a status of the motorcycle:

– Dropped off motorcycle

Week 1 – – Dropped off seat and asked if had an idea if it would get done week. Received a response of by Friday late or Saturday”.

1 – Friday – Went by to ask about the and take home if it was ready. I was that they only left was the break cylinder and the part should be there day. Bike should be early next week.

2 – Thursday – Went to ask about the and was told that the carb have not come in yet. I asked to validate that the had not had any work done of the carbs.

Week 3 – Thursday – Went by the to ask about the status and was told the carb kits had arrived and an additional part was needed was not part of the carb kits.

4 – Friday – Went by the shop. I was that the carbs were in need of cleanup and that the was underway. My understanding was that was immersion in carb cleaner for a few

Week 5 – Thursday – Went by the to see what the status of the bike The carbs were still worked on. I asked about hours and I was told for the carbs so far was 3.5 hours but that he was still I asked for a current total and an amount of approximately $460. in my total was a battery (I was not asked and was not on my original list of parts) and jets (I assume they the parts not included in the carb

I asked about the ongoing hours and received a serious about estimated are just estimates. I was also told I be called when it was done.

If my is correct this was three ago (eight weeks total). As of the week mark I had received no about the status of my bike.

I was contacted only after I a faxed description of where stood and asked the owner to me.

During the conversation with the I was told the following things:

Honda NC-I

are just that – estimates.

were issues with the being so gummed up.

American Motors says that the way to clean these is with an cleaner.

The Honda repair says that the time to one carb is 3.5 hours so they can me up to 7 hours of labor. I should lucky.

The carbs will to be removed (again) and be sent off to be cleaned. That will an additional 2 hours of labor and $40 for the

With these additional we are still under the official Repair Estimates Book” for of hours required so I should be

At this point in time I am on to spend one quarter of the value of the on a simple carb rebuild.

I a couple of questions:

I feel it is not my responsibility to pay to have the carbs back off. Am I off base

Surely an authorized Honda being in business for years know much cleaning is for a gummed up carb on such a Honda bike. Am I off base

Are there any other issues I to take to the table?

Any opinions be greatly appreciated.
