ok, maybe they run hot and cold, but they've been ok to me 10/21/2008

I've called a couple of times for advice and stopped in to have my Honda Nighthawk checked out and they've always been great to me. They've never worked on my bike, but instead let me use their tools and showed me what to do with a ""this is easy, you can do it so you don't have to pay me"" attitude. more

horrible service, total flake 6/15/2008

This guy, Tyler, is a flake. At least he was the day I met him. We had an appointment, I had the bike towed to him. He only took one look at it and decided he didn't want to work on it after all. He said my bike was a 'bad scene'. He seemed stoned or something and talked like a hippie. Maybe he thinks hes a moto psychic, but if so his powers of perception are lacking. I had to have it towed back home. That was 9 months ago or so. I have since rented a house with a garage, and decided to do all the work on it myself due to my experience with Tyler. It is now running great and looks awesome. I get compliments on it all of the time and it is one of the nicest CB750's I have ever seen. No one would refer to it as a 'bad scene' at this point. I am almost grateful for him being such an *ssh*le, because it motivated me to just do it myself and I've done a much better job than some mechanic who doesn't give a d*mn. I will always remember Tyler from Hayasa as the guy who permenantly soured me on mechanics in general.\r \r If you are looking for a good, RELIABLE mechanic, look elsewhere. Pros: didn't get a chance to see a good side, if there is one Cons: completely unreliable, changes his mind on a whim, seemed stoned or dazed more

Little Tylers live inside CB750 engines. 4/26/2008

Hayasa motorcycles is essentially the only shop you should concern yourself with if you love Japanese motorcycles. Tyler manages the shop without trendy concerns and he never, ever, repairs anything unneccessarily. He's good for a smart remark, excceedingly generous with his space and time, and an all around example of how and why people should love 70's japanese bikes (NO GOLDWINGS THOUGH). He made fun of my project the entire time I was building it but in the end even he had to admit that it was pretty cool. He even popped a small victory wheelie on it during it's inauguration. Thanks Tyler, even in from nyc. Pros: Advice, service, attitude Cons: He should charge more money for repairs more

WORST BIKE SHOP I EVER DEALT WITH !!!! 4/24/2008

Being as i have been riding since the age of 10, I have met a huge number of Bike riders. Most are cool to talk to and love to learn and share Bike knowledge. \r I ride British bikes and we are a loving bunch for the most part. I meet other enthusiasts and talk about repairs and lost Bike loves. I have called a number of different Bike shops over the years I use for a quick bit of advice on repairs or on other stuff related to my bike. Which brings me to my ill fated call to Hayasa Motorbikes. I just reburbished my dual Amal carbs on my Norton. I thought since I live around the corner from Hayasa I would call and ask if he could balance my carbs for me ( a easy task if you have the proper gear which he does) . I called and got a rash of sarcastic BS from the owner. He basically told me "" It is your problem, you deal with it"" Not a friendly "" hey, I mostly work on Japanese bikes and not familiar with them"" WTF ? being be -littled by him for being a "" dumb Brit Bike owner "" as he calls it. i hope he rots in hell. He is reason i HATE to call places I am not familiar with. AVOID THIS shop !!! Cons: You Name it.. more

Cool Calm and Collective 12/2/2006

Great guys, very helpful, very knowledgeable and willing to share what they know, which makes them well worth every penny. They?re extremely creative motorcycle enthusiast and repair specialist, and I think it?s a great quality to have and is rarity among most mechanics of any field these days. more

Tyler is really (really) good. 1/26/2006

I love this place! They took my bucket and turned it into a great bike to play on in a week and a half. Jury rigged a missing airbox and rebuilt my front brakes for a reasonble price. Runs well too! Pros: Clean Shop, Super knowledgeable, All about solutions!! more
