8) Well I'm new here but I have been on scooters for over 40 years. I think I've owned most of them and I find the Burgman 650 to be the best yet.
The only problem I have with this unit is to find someone who knows what they are doing and can work on the Burgman. This problem can force you to sell it and go back to my Helix. (I hope not!)

Welcome to the BurgmanUSA forums Frank. Glad to have you join us.

Maybe one of our forum members near your area can point you to a reputable dealer to provide service for your Burgman 650.

Greetings Frank and welcome to the Burgman. The 650 is going into it's third year here in North America. I'm sure there are some dealers out there that can help you out. Mind you........if your 650 is typical to the rest , you won't need but regular servicing.

Hi Frank and welcome. I have a dealer just up the block from me and I wonder about the same thing. They seemed a bit aloof. I hope Moonpie turns out to be reliable. I have only about 1200 plus miles since last fall.

It took the local dealer three days to do the 600 mile check/service.

I have a motorcycle mechanic friend who does all the work on my Burgman 650. Just have to bring him the service manual (which I highly recommend purchasing) and he's faster, more thorough, and less expensive than the dealer. I'm sure you can find a motorcycle mechanic up there with the same willingness and expertise/confidence to do all the work on your Burgy too. I'll never go back to a dealer... they have no clue what they're doing... and they learn with my dollars! No thanks. My advice would be to scout out a few independent motorcycle repair shops. Getting to know one of the locals really helps a lot (both on the great work they do and on the pocketbook).

Welcome to a great forum! For my service (the 600 mile and 3,500 mile--I'm at about 6,000 miles since last August) I have used the dealer where I purchased the bike (for me, Thousand Oaks Honda-Suzuki). Haven't had time to hunt down a smaller-shop guy, although that sounds like a good idea.

Good advise

Thanks for all the good advise. What I plan on doing is wait for anyone in my area for a lead on who they think is worth a try. I don't mind traveling
if I could find a tech. I could have confidence in. I used to have the best Helix man in the country and it was a good feeling to fall back on.

Contact me please!

Hi!

I need a good mechanic to check out a Burgman 650 I want to buy.

Do you think you can call me if you have found your mechanic? I could pay him to take a look and to give me a thumbs up or not.
