Recommend a place in or near Basel for a Motorbike Service ?

My Honda CBF 1000 needs a service .. and a pre-MFK check. Can anyone recommend anyone in Basel or over the border ?

(I know the default option is 'Topf Center'...which is my fall back ...but they're expensive and there's a waiting list. )

Topf centre or toss centre as they are affectionately known. "Wouldnt touch them with yours mate" comes to mind.

Know a few myself included with poor workmanship and using incorrect greases etc on critical areas.

Re: Recommend a place in or near Basel for a Motorbike Service ?

Depends whether it is an in warranty service or any old bike. There is a dealer on Flughafenstrasse near Kannenfeldplatz that has a decent reputation.

Töff Center is a mixed bag. They will service a bike well, but only if you are very specific about your needs. I have got my bike back in a variable state from them, and one time ended up with a burned out rear brake. So yes use them, but check what they do.

The other option is Göttstein in Bad Sackingham, Not so good if you don't speak German but OK if you need a BMW main dealer. Think they do Honda as well.
