After too many bad experiences and having to fix other stuff broken by ham fisted mechanics, what would your perception be?

Hi Bob, It looks like you don't trust the stealer mechanic. Hey, they have got to put their kids thru college also. LOL
Used oil pumps can be found on eBay for about $50.
I've done all of my own wrenching for the past 10 years. A little scary at first, but very rewarding when it is all back together and running right.
'96 900 BRG
An inexperienced dealer mechanic might have suggested new engine castings.
Moral of this story is LOOK for yourself first!
- Hi Jack & Bob,
Bob, My perception is just like yours. There are very few that I trust.
Jack, This is my last year of teaching. I'll be selling my house this summer or fall. My Mother and two of my brothers live in Calif. I'll be looking for a place near my Mom in Victorville.
I ought to give some thought into selling some of my extra Trophy parts. I've got almost enough to make another bike except for the frame.
