Willk . I had no call, shame as the engine he is slagging off I just put on my own boat

pics of the new engine Clyde Outboard Services - Local Business - Gourock, United Kingdom | Facebook

oh that is Cameron not me in the picture as you would need a wide angle lens to take one of me from that distance

mmmm still need more 2nd hand Honda's in for sale hint hint and 2 would be very nice hint hint and even better if the current owner thinks they are rubbish and they cost silly money to service hint hint so is selling them cheap. 0759 563 8185 RING ME

I am not selling my engines Dave, it was just a flippant remark, you have to take it in the context it was written in.

You keep saying I'm wrong but I have stated the fact's about my Honda service costings.

If you think I'm wrong please prove what I am saying is wrong and that if I used Clyde outboards my service costs would be any less.

Clyde outboards:

Please see above:

Unless your reading a different post from mines I have never slagged off the use of my Honda engines. I have only stated the facts about the cost of their service, which I think is expensive.

You say I'm so wrong in so many ways.........yet you have never came back with a reply to prove me wrong.

Willk, Your statement rings true:

There's a subtle difference:

An Amateur Fisherman ( now professional, thanks Willk) lies about the cost of his servicing to his mates because.........................They will think he's an idiot paying that much for service

A Professional Dealer is in denial about the service charges because...................he knows if he explained the true costs of service he might lose a sale.

funny how

1: you are still wrong about the cost by miles
2: you are v happy to post the wrong costs on here but yet still have not called regardless of how many times I give you my number so clearly there is no problem or you would have called
3: Honda sales who are winning more and more market share all the time in the commercial market? Does that not give you a clue that you are wrong?
4: Your comment about a 2 year warranty being a bad thing and only designed to put money in dealers pockets is laughable at best. maybe this weekend there will be a huge rush of people buying lawnmowers, cars outboards etc that refuse to have a long warranty but some how I doubt it.

As you can probably tell by my tone at first I thought you had made a mistake and needed help or had a bad day and hence felt we should help you out. The longer this goes on the more I am convinced you just want to rant and that its not a real problem, as you REFUSE to even try and do anything about it.

Oh still happy to buy those 10 billion a year to service honda's( yes I can exaggerate by a huge margine as well) or help you if you actually want it but after your last post I will not hold my breath and just expect more rubbish to be posted.

Dave
0759 563 8185 ( yes I am even posting it again)

PS Not holding my breath!

lol I was born in Manchester and cameron supports his local greenock team! What I hope will happen is that instead of making up rubbish he will sell me the Honda's!

yes I know there is only a small chance as he just wants to rant but you just never know.

OK Dave,

Can you give me a price to carry out a 200 hour service on my 2 x Honda 90 hp fuel injection engines using Honda parts as they are still under the Honda 2 year commercial warranty.

Parts
Labour

Assume I will bring the boat to you

You dont need a 200 hour service, so you now want to waste more of my time quoting for something you dont need.

I give up, I offered to help and all you want to do is waste our time please.

Dave

Just a though but how much is a full service on a 90 Honda. Assuming there is nothing wrong with it. Don't touch outboards normally so I'm guessing drop gearbox. Impeller. Oil. anodes.
Engine. Filter. Oil. Plugs. General clean and check up. Cables wiring etc. just a close rough idea. Ta

When I had my 225 services recently the total bill cam eto 560...

However to be fair this engine had not seen a dealer I suspect for a number of years as it has only done 130 hours.

The thing I found that put the cost up was the fecking spark plugs at 27 each !

You can get the same sparkplugs for a lot less on ebay so my advice would be dont get these done by your dealer.
