He'll probably just twist the idle adjustment on the side and claim something else happened. I don't have the best opinions of shops.

it is a bitch sort of. if you're not confident i would have them do it. problem is whenever I've had a shop pull my tank and plastics they always seemed to fuck something up. one shop pinched a wire against one of my fans and it wouldn't turn. they ALWAYS put the 08+ plastics on wrong in the front. we all know what area i'm talking about if you've done it before.

I would do it yourself and take your time. The vast majority of these guys on this forum are very helpful and take the time to respond if they can help. it's pretty damn cool actually. wished i lived closer to some of these guys. and you can download the service manual here also.

after all....you gotta learn this stuff eventually

Just be patient and don't rush it and you can get it done.. Otherwise get in your wallet.

Did you know that changing your oil is about as hard as opening a can of beer with no finger nails. Lol

Id say keep that 125 and do it urself if you are mechanically inclined. If not, then pay the shop and see if you can watch them do it. As far as asking for the old plugs bag, i feel thats not worth much as they can give you any old plugs back. I know too many crooked folks in these shops now a days.
