Enjoy a bit of clueless spannering but generally make things worse, not too bad at polishing though!

Anyone got any recommendations for a garage or mechanic in the Newport/Pontypool area?

The obvious big boy is South Wales Superbikes in Newport, been in there a few times but never actually spoken to anyone, anyone used them for spannering?? Imagine as a dealer they may be a bit more expensive than a trusty backsteeet garage.

Cheers

Bit of a mystery electrical fault, maybe regulator. Not at all hot on sparks so partly that; also thinking about the 24000 service that's not too far off.

Rolo, thanks for the tip, will make a note of that one.

Was hoping for somebody a bit nearer but if it comes to it Cardiff isn't too far.

Anyone know anybody nearer to Pontypool/Cwmbran/Newport??

I have been to MC Recovery in Cwmbran, Forge Hammer industrial estate (behind Aldi or Lidl) for a few odd jobs (removed an extra link from my transalp chain and an MOT) they seemed pretty good and helpful.
