GTA Trusted Rotary Mechanics

Hey everyone, I want to do a compression test on my R3, I bought it used in October. I am not worried about lost compression as there was only 14k on it when I bought it. I just want to get baseline so I know where I stand. My dealership is dragging it's heels on doing it for me so I would like to know if anyone has any recommends for a place to go?

Why not just tell your dealer to book it? If it's a service you're paying for I don't understand how they're dragging their heels?

Just say "schedule me in for a compression test."

They should reply, "yes sir, we have X times available, when would you like to bring it in? The service is X dollars."

Then you tell them when you'd like to bring it in.

They don't have a tester, they say they will borrow one from another dealership, that was 2 months ago... I have called 3 times now to just "schedule me in for a compression test"

I think that classifies as dragging heels...

But you are right, that IS how it should have went.... it didn't, so I would like to find a place where that is how it WILL go... hence the thread asking about trusted rotary mechanics...

Sorry to hijack this thread, but for some reason I'm not able to create a new thread on the Canada board (Any Admins seeing this, can you help with this please??)

I'm looking for a trustworthy rotary mechanic in Barrie area. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
