Well I'm not happy with the work done by firefox racing in Keighley but more so the price of it!
Poor communication lets reword that.. I got a response to 2 emails which I sent to them out of 4/5 emails, which told me to phone them!
No updates with the job or news on any delays. Basically they didn't want to put anything into writing and only wanted to talk on the phone

They told me that they were making a >>new linkage<< for my bike as I needed bearings adding to it.

Turns out they took my linkage triangles (thanks cookie for those).
Chopped off one corner and welded it up with what I assume is a tube with 2 bearings inside.

So it looks like this (the black piece) which has being spray painted.

The cost of this, £200 /220€ / 250$ usd which I agreed to as I were told they were making a new linkage, not cutting up my triangles!



I was told on the phone that the shock only cost £270 on the works sheet it's listed as £340
At least it's what I wanted.


The spacers and labour cost was at £40 per hour which is what I expected with a 3 and a half hour charge which
I think is fair but also a piss take considering they had the bike 11 WEEKS for a job which was quoted for 3 weeks.


Any how, on to the better things, the bike is now looking looking great.
uhhh after I put the body work on.





Oh and finally me making the bike look small.







Going to wait until I pick up the bike from zorstec and then contact firebox as they have also kept my cbr125's rear shock

That’s not attractive at ALL!

I hope they don’t charge you or pay for someone else to make it right (read correctly).
