Sorry to hear your about your situation. I've never done anything relating to service with Cycle Shack, but they have been helpful to me in the past when I needed something. I guess every business can't get it right the first time. Best of luck!

I took my bike up there for the first / break in service. Just after that, I rode the east side of the forest and stopped in New Waverly at the Shell station. Well I did a good once over of my bike and noticed that it had been spraying /misting oil out of the "loose" dip stick cap. Oil sprayed all over my boot and exhaust and down the side of the bike.

I only take my bike to Motorcycles Unlimited for repairs, work or maintenance I'm not competent or have time to do. I will never take it to the Cycle shack in Conroe I just don't trust their service department. If I had to take it to a Honda dealership, I would carry it out to Eastside Honda.

On a side note, I have had good luck with their parts department.

I do my own work but like he said ^^^^^ their is no choice about a warranty frame replacement I had my back up against a wall. I am master bmw technician with all the right tools. Everytime I picked up the bike from there I had to inspect it and every time something is not right. The sad part is that they call themselves trained. Those must be some training courses.

You go and get your oil changed at a Quick-E-Lube type place, the tech burns his arm on the exhaust under your car, you get sued. You go to Sonic to order a cheeseburger, the car-hop trips bringing your food to you and breaks her arm, you get sued.

Doesn't make a lot of sense does it?
For the life of me, I cannot think of a legitimate reason to be sued. Short of you booby trapping your bike and putting a snare or a bomb in the bike set to go off when they take off part, what could possibly happen that would be your friend's fault.

This is been bugging me all night and day. I just cant think of a scenario that would end up in the customer, thats not even there, being at fault .

Is this like a new trend with repair shops to sue the customers when their employees hurt themselves to avoid worker's comp? Sounds like something some insurance lawyers cooked up.

They did some warranty work on my R1 a couple of years ago, had it a couple of days, bike looked perfect and ran perfect when I picked it up.
I had no issues with them at all.

I live in conroe so, ive got tons of bad run ins with this joke of a dealership. When my wife and i went to look at bikes, we went to CCN, and nobody even acknowledged us. so i went to k's and was treated like a king. bought a bike that same day. a couple months later the bolt that holds the mirror on, broke and the mirror itself fell off. took the bolt and the mirror, they told me it wasnt a warranty issue, and even if it was they wouldnt honor my factory suzuki ext warranty, that k's, who i bought it from would have to. well i didnt really wanna go all the way to humble from conroe, just for this simple thing, even though k's is good. i called k's and they told me they had to honor it and it was a warranty issue. they even called suzuki on CCN for me. about 5 minutes later, CCN was calling me back apologizing. He said i would need to bring the bike and leave it, so he could take pics and it would be 3 weeks. i asked if i could come by and just let him take pics, and bring it back once the mirror was in. (and to mention, the guy at CCN happened to be this harland cat) and is a grade A moron. so i tell him forget it, im not gonna leave it there for 3 weeks, and ended up taking it to k's and had bike back in 5 days. then i went in to get a price on a oil change, he qouted me a minimum of 99 bucks, i saide peace and went to Motorcycles Unlimited. CCN is the worst dealership i have ever dealt with and will never go back

i havent dealt with ccn in over 2 yrs as i have been living in college station... but when i lived in spring, they were always last on my call list because when you call its not like "how can i help you" or "what can I do for YOU today", its WTF do you want, why are you calling us (they are JUST like action sports in college station). both shops are full of morons (for the most part).
