    There's a recent thread about repair shop (mostly car repair shops to recommend).
    How about motorbikes? Any good places for motorbike repairs (other than dealerships)? Or best places to buy replacements motorbike tires with wheel balancing?

    Do they also do the plastic body parts on a motorcycle like fenders and light covers?

    The used car lot across from Hypermart does good body work. They have repaired the plastic on my 1000cc a few times and did an excellent job with the paint. Both times I had repairs done it cost me P10k (came with a full paint job both times). For smaller motorcycles/scooters, it is probably cheaper to just order completely new plastic (usually already "painted").

    For periodical maintenance of your motorbike, just stick to the dealer, their mechanics have the most experience to replace or adjust things. When it comes to tires, batteries and other not brand specific items there is a wide choice of motor shops around. To mention one shop as the best.........I really don't know.

    If you look for a really good professionell Mechanic than go to Peter Sager, Dauin (The House in opposite of ELDORADO)
    This guy win a lot of prices in Bike races in the past and he really knows what a Bike needs - but he ask his own prices - it's at least affordable and on the other hand you get really Quality!

    Yes, for some work, I would go to the dealer; brake work, valve clearance, etc. But, yeah, for tires and batteries; elsewhere. BTW, not looking for a single best choice for a service shop for tires, several suggestions will do. Would you have one or two in mind based on experience? A few years back, had my battery replaced at a store directly across from the front of Robinson's mall. That was a good choice, for example.

    i'm a new bike owner here...
    i took my bike to raddi to get new tubeless tires and to fix a leak in the carb float bowl overflow. there was about 6 mechanics in the shop at the time and i got the tires installed after a short wait but i was told to come back the next day around 8:30 for the carb guy.

    so i got there at 8:30 the next day and the carb guy came in around 10:30 am and took me right away; he pulled the carb and put a new float needle in with no hesitation.

    next day, the carb was leaking again and my tires were low so i went back to the shop but neither of the guys that worked on my bike the day before were there. it appears the mechanics at raddi (and maybe other parts stores?) are independent of the parts store; you pay the store for the parts and you pay the mechanics for the installation..

    next time, i'll get the mechanics name and number...

    You are referring to the Panasonic shop. I always buy my batteries there so both motorbike and car.

    After-market tires, fine. But an after-market battery? I am dubious.
