having worked 4 years in telephone customer service, i can speak a little street. let me try and translate:

I took my motorcycle to the dealer I purchased it from as I have Platinum Service (warranty?). The motorcycle had developed an internal problem and the ECU had switched the fuelling into run-safe mode, preventing my from accelerating past 95mph. Which I would only attempt on the track because speeding is wreckless and illegal. The service technician removed a [?] fromt he engine. The service manager told me that I would need a new [?] and the part would be $1000. I asked to speak with the owner and the manager recended his $1000 qoute.



phew...street is tough, had to go to babeltranslator for some of it

:laughing6 :laughing6 :laughing6












still doesnt make sense though!
