Labor should be max 2hrs but usually an 1-1.5hrs. Anything over that yes they are poking you.

Maybe its rider error? there is NO reason a clutch should go that quick, I have a 99 Suzuki that still has the original clutch, just sayin Looks like u have 1-3 months experience? are you doing burnouts? wheelies? not bashing, just asking? why did they say they wouldn't cover labor?

6 hours to change a clutch on a half naked bike. that's enough time to do 4 or 5 bikes. i would get the parts and do it yourself or take it to one of our sponsors. MOTORCYCLES UNLIMITED does excellent work!!!

what does the warranty you purchased say?
Does it say labor included or just parts?
I have never bought one so i have no experience in that area.

Honestly IMO you would be MUCH better off taking bike to reputable motorcycle shop and paying for repair than letting ANY dealership touch your bike for ANY reason. The techs at dealerships couldn't pour out of a boot in my experiences...YMMV

I've never had a painless service experience at Mancuso SW. It seems like they're picking up right where eximport left off.

heres my two cents. yamaha is doing you a favor by giving you the clutch. mancuso could do the same with labor, but greedy people won't. so my thinking is change it yourself. its not hard just the shaft that turns inside is a pain to put in. ( lining it up) takes about .5 to an 1 hour . you should make a stink about it.

exact same thing happened to a friend there is a thread on here about it

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=193285

one thing they do a good job at is over their customers I would drive out of state before buying another bike from those liars, thieves.

I've dealt with them on warranty stuff and it was just BS from day one

Yeah, kinda quick to burn out a clutch...

Mancuso. them in the hard. Total Faces. I just put in an order last night with stubbs and will be driving 30 miles past mancuso to pick up 20 bucks in parts at stubbs. My bike is 3 blocks from mancuso and I'd rather drive and sit in traffic at rush hour than deal with those pricks.
