WILLY WORLD CYCLES

Showing 5 reviews out of 53 total
Just serviced my bike at Willy World Cycles of Joliet. I am glad they are still around with their excellent factory trained & certified technicians. Even though Willy World is a little ride out of my way, dealing with real mechanics is much better than going to a local garage. Thx Willy for always fixing my bike, storing it during the winter & prepping if for spring. Now if the weather would just cooperate, I'd be one very happy camper.
I had a parts person named Craig C. I was looking for basic maintenance parts for my motorcycle like oil, filter and oil drain plug seal. It took about 20 mins to get parts ready and they were wrong. The oil drain seal was wrong and he said he couldn't find the correct one. Also he was trying to give me honda oil for my Yamaha. Why go here for wrong, overpriced parts when you can go to richs yamaha. I have had multiple bad experiences with the sales side here but since it's close to where I live I keep going back. The whole time I was there an employee behind the counter kept saying how he wants a raise. Get some people in there that know what they are doing and give them a raise. I'm done with this place.
This review is for work done in early fall of 2015:
I brought my 1978 750 Super Sport in to Willy World in July to have the brake lines replace and calipers cleaned and rebuilt as well as a rear master cylinder rebuild. Other things needed were fork seal replacement, a 4 carb rebuild and cleaning, a new speedo drive gear and ignition switch replacement. I was bringing the bike back from 25 years of storage in my garage. The bike is pretty mint overall and I did the reatoration work myself, but needed help with the above mentioned issues.
I dealt with Clark, the service manager throughout and I must say that he is one of the most patient and considerate service managers I can ever remember. He was never too busy to spend 10 or even 15 minutes on the phone answering my questions prior to my dropping my bike off and throughout the repair process. He is a real gem. Unfortunately, the mechanic that is the resident expert on vintage bikes had an accident the week after I dropped my bike off and was out of action for almost two months. Another mechanic took over the project and Jack did a fantastic job on my machine. With a bike that is 38 years old now, some parts are very difficult to source, with one of the parts having been found in Norway of all places. It was a frustrating 2 months plus of waiting for my bike repairs to be completed, but there were several extenuating circumstances that delayed things so it was not the norm for Willy World to take anywhere near that long for 99% of the repairs they do. It was an expensive proposition considering that 14.5 hours of labor alone is about 1200 dollars, but that is typical for bike repair labor rates and a lot of shops don’t even want to touch bikes that are almost 40 years old so I am glad that Willy World is near my home to take care of my bike when necessary.
Although I would have liked to get my bike back a lot sooner, after waiting 25 years to ride it again, another two months didn’t kill me and the work they did for me is excellent. The bike now brakes better than it ever did and runs like it was brand new again. I would definitely give them my business again and can recommend their service department very highly, particularly Clark and the technicians that I met there. They are very knowledgeable and do quality work.
As a follow up, I took my son's bike in that he had just bought on the 18th of March, 2016 for some work. It is a 2001 VN800 Vulcan that was in very good shape when bought, but needed the carb taken apart and cleaned. Even though the shop was very busy when I called, I was told to bring it in and they would try to get on it soon. They had it done in two days and the bike now runs like new. The carb was rebuilt and re-jetted to run properly with the Vance & Hines straight pipes on the bike as that was not done when they were installed. Great attention to detail by the technician on that. I also had a battery installed and was charged less that I could have sourced the same model for. I could not be happier with the treatment I have received from Willy World, in particular the service manager Clark and his great staff. I will be a customer as long as he is there and will gladly recommend them to anyone.
Best dealer around!!! Willy World Cycles in Joliet just gave me an awesome deal on my new Yamaha STAR motorcycle. I am a new rider and have been researching Yamahas on the web all winter. I checked out a dealer in Lockport and one in Countryside, but neither one could beat the deal that Willy World gave me. I also bought some riding gear and they gave me a coupon for my first oil change. Can't beat their pricing, their service or their discounts.Thanks to my salesman Jestin, my parts guy Brandon and the service manager Clark. All very Knowledgeable motorcycle guys that treated me with respect.
This was about a year ago but I was cleaning out my wallet recently and came across a little reminder of why I will never give this place any of my money. I was a serious buyer for a WR 250r and had called 4 dealers in the area for an out the door price, sure some were more than others but only by $175 at most. I called WWC and asked for an out the door price and he wouldn't give me one, he just kept saying I should come in and discuss it in person, while the other shops just asked me a few questions like what county I live in and then gave me the number, I should have just ended it with WWC then and there. After the sales person called me back 3 more times over the next few days to try to get me to come in instead of just telling me the price for the bike I finally said sure I'll come down on Saturday and we can discuss a price which to this day I regret. I make it down to the shop which is out of my way by 40 minutes just to talk price about a bike that wasn't even in the store, they said they had 2 but they were in the warehouse. Finally after a week of asking for an out the door price I got one, His quote was $2,464 more than any of the other dealers, how is WWC off by that much? These people are scammers and I would advise everyone to avoid these vultures, I would give zero stars but sadly you can't do that.
