    Bumping this thread since I'm curious if anyone has recommendations.
    LC 1200 if that matters.
    Would be great to find a mechanic near Henderson.

    Yikes. In asking around I got the most mentions for a guy who goes by "Irish Mike" at Major Powersports. I had the work done there today (oil, final drive, front tire) and it I have no complaints. I had a good experience with people in the shop. They talked riding, helped me out with a few cool routes in the area and were solid human beings. So, at least when I'm too lazy to do the work myself I have a place I can go to and trust.

    I'll have to search this "boingo's list" you reference. I'm a bit new to the forums, but the context clues tell me that's a handy list of mechanics that respected people on the forum approve of. And that's a handy list!
    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks. It looks like there's a lot of opportunity in Vegas for a good BMW mechanic...

    Is Eurocycle in Las Vegas good for service - quality and price wise? I need to get the '06 RT serviced, and part of that will be them "activating" my (newly installed) factory radio, which I understand needs to be with a DT-1 tool, so it will use the dash display. I'm worried as it is a "John Hollywood" dealer...

    They charge $165/hr for labor. I can't speak to quality because I would only use them in a scenario like you list where you have no other option. I think it's more than 200 miles to any other dealer from here so not much you can do really.
    I was quoted $750 for what was $375 down the road at Major Powersports. A couple guys on a Reddit group recommended them and their mechanic who goes by the name "Irish Mike." Really nice guy and really passionate about bikes and what he does. The work was oil and final drive service and a front tire swap (I provided.) I still have the service indicator light on though so I'll probably bit the bullet and get the tool for reading codes and start doing most of my own work again. But I'll absolutely use Major (Irish Mike) when I'm not feeling like doing the work myself.

    I live in Henderson as well and do all my own work. Not a certified mechanic by any means, but I've done my own oil, final drive, valve and cam checks, tire changes, brakes, and I have a GS911 to reset the service lights and read and clear any codes.

    Nothing against Eurocycles, they went through a number of service managers after they "absorbed" BMW Motorcycles of Las Vegas and things were somewhat "unsettled" for a while. IIRC the service manager now is a guy named Miller, who was the service manager for years at the old BMW Motorcycles of Las Vegas when it was over by the 215 and Rainbow. I always had good service from him and he seemed like a pretty straight shooter.

    I prefer to do my own work simply because I know that nobody else is going to take the care to do it like I want. Plus, it's always good to have a close look at everything once in a while. If you want your service light extinguished, I'm sure we can figure out a time to make that happen.
