Agreed on the karma and thats kind of why i just feel like saying it. In the end i had zero out of pocket, but it sure wasnt an easy road.

Based on their actions, they aren't "decent" people. They are f%cking thieves. If it is just one rotten apple, the decent guys will be OK. I would wager the others knew at some level what was being done.

You should pass on who they are so others won't get screwed by them.

In my book, they might as well have broken into your house and stole from you, the fact that you ended up with zero out of pocket eventually just proves that they are incompetent thieves, because they DID try to screw you (steal from you).

Insurance fraud just gets passed down to us in the end in higher premiums. At least let the insurance company know what they are up to. Really surprised the insurance company didn't total the bike out for the price of the engine rebuild!

Its an extended warranty, and they did the max payout. 7,5**. So yes basically it was totalled. My plan can now have no future claims, and i believe that includes roadside assistance. Not looking to bash them online anyone thats been around has probably already read threads, and knows to stay away. More interested in what you guys think about informing the insurance company about the matter.

Just inform your insurance company that you have suspicions that the shop may have engaged in unethical practices. Like I said before, we all pay for insurance fraud! So do the right thing and inform them.

Have you at least talked to the shop about what they are up to? Sounds like a shop I wouldn't want to be associated with.

c
I got a feeling the main mechanic knew what was up, and agreed it was B/S without out right saying it to me. Nice guy, and one reason i have hesitation saying anything to the insurance company. He had no control over the situation. He has been helpfull many times when i used to take my bike in for service, and would explain stuff to a newb. Im just not sure if its worth it to possibly screw them back when you got good guys that might end up suffering due to others business ethics.

If they are willing to scam insurance then they are capable of scamming customers. Those who tolerate corruption are just as bad as those who perpetrate it. Do the honorable thing.

Should of looked the bike over better before leaving once home i reliezed the cotter pin in the castle nut on the rear axle was not there and the nut was handtight. Felt like a dumbass once i saw that and will be more thorough looking my bike over when leaving a shop next time i go in.

They are everyone by doing this. That is exactly what makes insurance so high. Every claim is a by someone. It's gotta be checked as often as possible.

I'm sure all of MH would appreciate that. Hopefully it is not what it appears to be with the scamming.

Im aware. Not trying to get anything out of this thats not my style. I didnt let them screw me even though they tried and tried. Just trying to see what everyone thought about reporting them. Looks like i will tell the insurance claim handler whats taken place.

One thing i can say i learned out of this is Cornerstone extended warraty company is great, and have been wonderfull to work with. Way more helpfull then anyone at the dealership has been. Ive always been skeptical of extended warrantys and this was the first one i ever purchased, and well worth every penny. I would buy one again when i pick up my next bike from a different dealership. They never tried to give me the run around and phone support was amazing good people.

Yeah sorry there was a typo.

They wanted 3,500 from me and insurance was paying 7,500 0maximum amount. They were nice enough to drop it down a thousand on my end just to be nice. So grand total of 10,000 after the thousand dollar customer loyalty discount.
