    I'm in need of one that has the proper tools and shop to work on a 2006-08 1000cc Gonna Fireblade. Brake (needs fluid, bleeding and likely some rubber gaskets replaced), oil change, water pump (likely a gasket) work...and who knows what else, it's been sitting for awhile. Being able to order parts on their own would be preferred.

    There is an American guy Glenn, Dont know his surname but he has a speech impediment, tongue cancer some time ago, and cannot read nor write, hence no good texting him but he is one bloody good mechanic and knows big bikes having restored one himself at home. Can be found at Ynot from time to time and if you ask there I am sure you will find someone who can put you in touch.

    For me, Peter Sager is the best motorcycle mechanic in town. He is a Swiss and has a workshop behind the El Dorado resort in Dauin. He used to own a Suzuki dealership in Switzerland and was also active in racing. He might be not the cheapest, but he is definitely very professional.

    What do you mean by "Maintenance Jobs" just general servicing? If that is what you are looking for, of course, I can do that.

    Hi there.
    Does anyone own, ride a huge bike (more than 1000ccm) over there?
    Did you bought them there? Import? Taxes?...
    How about the local maintenances? Are they good?
    Curious to know what you all riding.
    Momently riding a Harley Davidson Streetglide.
    Any advice, tips are more than :welcome:!!!

    I have a 1000cc Fireblade. Bought it locally. Importing older motorcycles would be a pain (I hear you have to completely disassemble them but I've never actually known anyone first hand to do that, it could just be bar stool BS), not sure about newer ones but vehicle import duty here are outrageous, plus Customs is one of the most corrupt and incompetent government agencies in the country.

    Maintenance is still difficult and expensive but it is getting easier. If you decide to get in with one of the MC groups here things should be a lot easier. I have no idea the cost or ease of acquiring Harley/cruiser parts here.

    Hi Rye83.
    Thanks for your reply.
    I heard from my spouse that even, if you disassemble your bike, customs will check the parts. If they 'think' there's a complete bike in it you will have to pay taxes on it.
    This is the reason I will not bring my Harley to the Philippines.
    I will have time enough to find out what and where and if I will buy a Harley over there.
    I will start with a local scooter or maybe a T-Max.
    Great to hear there are some heavy bikes there. Are there Expats motor clubs?
