C'mon, be fair. Not all dealers' workers are that cackhanded. Nonetheless, it's a wise owner who checks reputations before work is done, keeps an eye on the work performed, and calls a shop on work done poorly. Remember, too, that Mudbug is trying to use a harness meant to be plugged in, not just adding wiring with "vampire clips".
I just did my first tupperware removal and, even though I've been doing wrench-twisting for a while, found the job was a lot more involved than I expected. I did most of the maintenance on my Connie, built a touring Suzuki GS (v. retro, with a full Vetter Windjammer kit) and maintained a Honda CB900 Custom (the one with a two-speed transfer case behind a 5 speed tranny - a 10-speed motorcycle!) as well as doing the Vetter thing on that, too.
Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...
