While visiting California, I went to Nicoll Racing looking for parts and gear. Billy spent a great deal of time helping me find the items I was looking for, ordering them, and working out special shipping details. It is obvious that he is an expert, loves bikes, and enjoys working with people. If I could give him 6 stars, I would.
Great place. They always do a good job and the guys are cool. Support this business.
The team at Nicoll Racing provided very quick service (had the appropriate suspension parts in stock) at a fair price. Very accommodating on drop-off and pick-up. Will take my bike back for regular service and repairs.
I emailed him one night that I had found a particular tire for my street bike that other shops were unable or unwilling to bring in for me. Within minutes, after hours, he emailed me back saying he could get those tires for a great price and to bring my bike in the next day. He delivered on his promise, he and his guys did a great job, and I would not trust anyone else to work on my bikes.
Billy and his team are as good as it gets. He has always taken great care of my familiy's dirtbikes and my street bikes as well.
Nicoll Racing is a one man shop run by what is probably the most no-nonses person I have ever met, Billy Nicoll. Even though Billy's shop always seems to be full of motorcycles and he is the only person manning it, I have never had to wait a single second past the stipulated time. He is incredibly apt at working on any machine, and is one of the few independent licensed shops that work on Ducatis. He is also So Cal's only approved Racetech technician, which is near impossible to be, unless you're the best. It's no surprise that Metric is the go to place for most of Houston's motorcycle racer when they need their fine-tuned machines working at the top of their capabilities.
Rather than reiterate every point made I'll just agree with ya'll. I have had my bike serviced by Billy a few times, and each appointment he takes the time to answer any questions (stupid as they may be) I have.
Simply put, a professional, and that is not something you find all that often in the motorcycle repair and tuning business. Billy is well known and respected in the serious motorcyling community in SC (and elsewhere). Know what you want when you talk to him and know that you will get the finest service available.
I've been going to Nicoll Racing for the last few years with my '09 Road King. I've been impressed with the service and reasonable pricing afforded by Billy and Ryan I think his name was. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to anyone.
I find out about Nicoll Racing from a friend -- Nicoll had rebuilt the suspension on his CRF450X. The bike rode like a dream, so I eventually looked Billy up and had him work on my bike as well. The suspension exceeded my expectations! Some time later I was riding in Baja and I couldn't get my bike to start. I called Billy and he walked me through some troubleshooting. No talk of charging me, just a good guy helping me out. Some time later my bike needed a valve job and the top end rebuilt. Billy quoted me a reasonable price and provided excellent service. He noticed some other issues while working on the bike and provided and estimate -- but no pressure to get them done or have him do it. I'll be back!
