You think you had it bad with JTs? They put the wrong battery (lead acid) in my Lexmoto adrenaline. Euro4 adrenalines come with Li-On stock, but that's not the worst part. They put the lead acid battery in on its side..... Like are you F*%£$% serious. I didn't know until I had issues with it because the bat is tucked under the side fairings. Battery failed in about a week after all the electrolyte leaked out. That bike was a write off from the start. The amount of schoolboy mechanic errors they did to that bike, I feel sorry for the bike itself. getting a refund and I put it towards a part-ex on a new(ish) Suzuki with a thousand miles on the clock. My current bike a GSXS125. But now this bike too is breaking down. Fuel in the oil, running rich asf, exhaust valve too tight (hence my given nickname  :smirk: ) and its idling like a dog with epilepsy when it's reached full operating temperature. Baring in mind I have only had this bike for just about two and a half months. I have sent my email already to say that I am rejecting this bike too. It's been in their shop 3 times. They recommended I went to Thunder Road because they couldn't find out what is wrong with it. Bridgend with fuel in my oil.... from Swansea.. Nope. It's going back. All in all their mechanics must be pretty F*"$&!* incompetent.  ###

Ahh well. Enough ranting, just a tip left now. Although JTs desk staff and sales team are fecking great, don't buy a bike there ffs. The mechanics will feck something up I can guarantee it.

Just wanted you to know you aren't the only one with the curse of JTs.   :angry-banghead:

Cheers blokes!

To be happy, I don't need private helicopters,a Florida house or a yacht. I'm fine with my motorcycle,a trip to a forest in Bavaria and some lunch money.

Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

Just read this about batteries,  there's a lot of rubbish been coming into the country from the far East,  what appears to be happening is they are using reconstructed lead, that's to say that if you've wondered what happens to old batteries, they go to places like this and they break them down and reuse the lead cells after melting and remoulding them.
It seams to be OK for some applications of lead use but not for use in small motorcycle batteries. They will just about take 12-12.2 volts and that's Thier lot.
A couple of years back I had customer with an XS400 Yam, he'd got a brand new battery off the net, but couldn't use the leccie foot, so had to use the kicker instead. He wanted it sorting so brought it round,  I checked the input to battery and was only getting about 12.2 volts at 4000 rpm, so I went round it doing all the checks .... Rec/reg generator wiring loom in general,  put all new male/female (OEM) in the terminal blocks, but no luck
So removed the battery and put it on my intelligent battery charger, it told me to sod off I ain't haveing any of this, showed my customer and he was astounded!.
Had a look around the spares dept and found a used battery of roughly the same size, gave it a 30 minute charge fitted it to the bike kicked it over and checked the charge rate... 13.summut at the battery, confirming the brand new one he had brought was utter rubbish, equally one happy but unhappy customer, although he couldn't get his money back from the vendor, I did get him a yuasa one for just a quick more than what he'd paid for the other one. It's still working on now even able to use the leccie foot. :old:

When I worked in retail, there were two rules.

The customer is ALWAYS right

If the customer is wrong, refer to Rule 1.

Yes ... and no.
Sometimes the customer is right but sometimes they are absolutely and totally wrong too. If any business dealt with every customer complaint the way the customer wanted it dealt with then I can assure you they would not be in business for very long.
When the customer is wrong the important thing is HOW you tell them they are wrong. It's all about diplomacy and tact and if you get that bit right then customers will be, for the most part, happy with what you do.

I have bought several bikes from JT's over the last few years. Always helpful and polite. Service and tyre fitting cheaper and better than most. No quibble after sales. Have probably made 100 visits over the years - vast majority, pleasant ones.
