Need a Shop Mechanics Estimate on Work.
Yamaha GP1300R 2005.
I need a labor estimate for taking out old reed cages and putting new ones in. This place I took it to is charging me around 8hrs. (1.83hrs for diag. 6.33hrs for labor and I have $61.00 in parts = about $650.00). I know this is really wrong but need a crutch to stand on when I argue it. Please let me know what it would really be. I already have an idea. Thanks for the help. I'm going to rip someone a new one when I pick this thing up tomorrow night. By the way, did I mention that everyone at this place is rude and it's been there for like 4+ weeks. I'm PISSED.....
Thanks for the help guys.

1.83 hours for a diagnosis should have been the first clue you were about to get "scoped"
obviously not a competent shop for repairs..overcharging yes..
pay by credit card if possible, get two estimates from dealerships then file a dispute and settle for the higher of the two estimates from a real yammy shop.

The scarry part is the Vf3's in his signature are now on his mechanics ski and he's probably got some nice new stockers in his...

if you are near philly, PM SUCKMYWAKE. good friend of mine. he's a master transmission tech, but works on ski's on the side, and knows his way around a gpr.
3 hours sound fair. it is a pain in the ass job.
