Honda Service

Can anyone recommend a good Honda Dealers to have a 130HP Serviced?

I live in the Midlands, but am happy to take the RIB to the South Coast if need be.

My local Honda Dealer is a new Agency - and the Mechanic admitted he hadnt seen anything bigger than a 15HP since he did his Honda Course as he usually works on Canal Craft.

Thanks all

Service

Graeme would you consider servicing the outboard yourself, changing the plugs is easy enough, we have just done gear oil again no problem fill from the bottom with the top breather screw out, check your anodes for signs of advanced wear and as its a four stroke would I be right in saying it has an oil resivor and filter to change, the beauty of doing these jobs yourself is you get to have a close inspection of the outboard as well as saving money gavin

You're a RIB owner

Buy a manual and a set of spanners. Travel from the midlands to the south coast to get a engine serviced. Jeez.

Probably needs to get dealer service to maintain the warranty?
IIRC Hondas have 5 year warranty.

As Alan says, to protect the 5 year warranty you need to have an Annual Service by a Honda Dealer
