That comes next.
Oh, I definitely recall the insane hourly prices they were quoting. I was like.. I don't even make that much an hour.. GTFO here. Loaded up on tools and did everything myself.


Yeah man, I was eyeballing that harbor and Freight bead breaker when I was out there. God I love buying tools. Even got one of these bad boys :

It beeps and vibrates more rapidly as you approach the set torque. Love putting that sucker to work.

Did at least they told you what kind of oil they put in it?if its GN4 thats shit is good but its cheap. So they will open 4 quarts plus oil filter, its cost me to buy them 30 bucks, and leaves me 90 bucks for me in 20 min. Hey i would do that for you!! You will get free chain addjustment and lubricate :-))
Next time save yourself some money and do it yourself.and you will buy stands with the money you will save.

Its nice, just to much and not needed. When i used to work on cars,truck and farm tractors back in my country in europe, we never had torque wrench. It was all with the feeling on your hands and you should just know in your brain what size bolt or nut how much it can hold before it breaks up.
Here in USA i have couple of torque wrenches and many sets of tools, and they come handy for my motorcycle!
