Reliable LT repair, non-dealer in Phoenix

Is there a reliable place that works on LTs in the Phoenix area that isn't a dealer?

i'm looking for options other than dealer here in tucson in cases I decide not to replace the clutch by my self' have all of the parts, but the heat is still a big issue.

If there is a reliable place. i'd consider riding up there and have them do the replacement which i believe should take them more than one day?

Best

Never used them myself but have heard good things about them, but there is also some negative, here is a thread from the AZbeemers.org site (Oh heavens, I hope they don't flag me as a malcontent for linking to another forum) about motoghost.

I'm not 100% sure that the link above will work for non-members of the club so if it's dead then that is why.

Re: Reliable LT repair, non-dealer in Phoenix

You can't beat Omar and the staff at Motoghost, they did most of the service on my '02 LT. But I'm not sure you save anything over having Iron Horse BMW in Tucson do the work. The job could take a day, but stuff happens, what do you do if it takes a day or two for an unanticipated part?

Re: Reliable LT repair, non-dealer in Phoenix

thank you for ypur time posting and suggestions

Local dealership is a place I avoid for repairs. they were doing some work on my LT and needed to order a part. But, they waited until the part arrived to then put my bike back into line to be worked on. end result was 5 weeks to repair which I though was un-necessarily long, especially after pointing out to them that I had to rent a car since LT is my only transportation--deaf ears.

Plus, while it was there I wanted them to dis-embowel her and see if any seals had to be replaced since she had been weeping oil, drops comming out of the bell housing, for a few years. Answer was "NO. don't want to tie up the work space!"

when I got my bike back I noticed I was charged for 7 spark plugs? first time I went on a ride where I could use the cruise controll it didn't work. when I called the dealership to see if they were any where's near throttle cables they denied working near them. Months later while in Maine I spent hours and hours and hours trying to adjust the CC, no avail.

I solved the problem when I installed new cables and discovered that one of the cables had been tied off in the wrong place. Hence the CC didn't work and there wasn't any way of adjusting it so it would work.

Net result, won't consider any repairs at local dealership.
