    repaires on bmw bike in Ohio.

    Has any one had work done at sills in cleveland ohio or all seasons in wooster ohio. Trying to figure out who is better at major repaires.

    Both are O.K. but neither one is on the top end of the scale. Sill's is rather busy with lawnmower repairs and All Season's has too many other brands and both don't have a real good BMW mechanic.
    The absolute best BMW service you can get in NE Ohio is at Mathias BMW in New Philadelphia.
    It may be a long haul, depending where you are, but it is worth it.
    What bike?

    Other than a tire change at All Seasons, I have not had work done at Sills or All Seasons, so I can not speak about their quality.

    I have had outstanding service from Mathias BMW in New Philadelphia, OH since I moved to this area in 1995. Dealership owner Gene is a treats you more than fairly and lead mechanic Jamie will see that your bike is done correctly. I have bought both a new and a used BMW from this dealership.

    I also did well with Re-Psycle BMW when I needed parts and service on a 1984 R80RT.

    I have lived in Michigan, Illinois and Ohio and dealt with more than 12 BMW dealerships and repair shops in those states since I started riding in the 1970's. Mathias ranks among the best of those.

    Wow! That is one hell of a reason to have to look for a repair shop! Did you contact your insurance? Are you sure the bike CAN be repaired - is the frame bent?
    Again, what bike?

    Funny that you put the two XXes in there:
    I don't want to hijack this thread, but has anyone ever changed a R1100RT top fairing to a R1150RT part? Does it fit or do you need the fairing bracketry/holder?
    I know you need a different headlight.

    To change it over you need a new headlight, and the tupperware panel around it. To make it fully functional you need a new dash panel with the light switch for the fog light and headlight adjustor, along with the adjusting mechanism. It would be very hard to spot a conversion. Jon

    The question really was, if it is necessary to change the metal bracketry. I have the headlight and the plastic, as well as the top cover for the windshield base, which is different.
    Didn't think about the instrument panel and the switches for fog-light and headlight adjustment.

    wrecked gsa

    I dropped the bike off at Mathias BMW real nice people . They were taking it apart yesterday both rims bent,piece out of frame.I have got to wait for insurance to get back to me. Do not want a car. Already looking at another GSA. Miss my bike I only had her 6 1/2 months and she gave me alot of good memories. They put a speedometer on and she stated up still wants to be rode. I signed the organ donor card for her. She will live on. Wear your helmet and get hip,back and shoulder protection.
