Amazing that it takes that long. I got all mine done in one week. It's very hard to find someone that can work on your bike with the care that you would.

I used to have an American work on mine (until he left country) and now have a local that is spot on! He even came to my house to work some stuff! The local is even starting to find some minor things that the HD Certified dude didn't too well on.

At least you have a dealer over there that you can order parts from...

The dealer is a joke in BKK. gave them a list of parts to price for me when i bought the bike, several hundred $ worth, and they couldn't be bothered to even quote me

That sucks! Could you order thru them via online (like most HD Dealers)?

There are rumors of HD putting 2 dealerships here (1 in Manila, 1 in Pampanga (AC area))... If they do come around, I am sure that they will f*** up a good deal too..

They aren't interested and their online website is a joke. Fortunately i didn't buy the bike from them.
Ive been getting most of my stuff from the States and paying the import duty when it gets here. Not HD products because the dealers there wont export, however dealers in the UK, or one of them at least that i know of, will. Go figure
