Mechanic around Dublin recommendation

Hey Guys,

I am looking for a recommendation of a mechanic around Dublin. My 2005 Fazer 1000 doesn't rev as eagerly as it used to and sometimes when fully opened in a gear staggers for a while. At first I thought it's bad fuel batch but ruled this out now. I presume carbs need to be cleaned properly etc. Ned this diagnosed properly and fixed

Anybody had a similar issue and could recommend a good mechanic?

Thanks
Paul

Check/replace the air filter. Carb’d fazers are quite sensitive to the air filter. Mototuning get a thumbs up from me aswell

Don't know anyone out that area, sorry. I'm sure some of the other lads will know though.

Re: Mechanic around Dublin recommendation

D15 is gone, they've reopened in Ashbourne.

My Fazer 600 had similar issue and Moto Pitstop in Rathgar got it fixed :-)

I've used JP a couple of times for servicing on my R1 and found them good to deal with.

This. Had the same problem a few years back with my gen1. Have a look at this, if you're handy at all you may be able to sort it yourself :

Re: Mechanic around Dublin recommendation

Thumbs down from me for D15, Lied directly into my face about replacing the plugs and afterwards I realised he'd broken a bit of the crankcase and said nothing...just a load of instant gasket all over the place.
