i assertained from sounding technical, so there would be no communication problems,lol. The employees didnt know i had a warranty on the bike. They quoted me a 1000 dollar fee for the part. When they realized i had warranty, they skipped replacing the part since the bikeshop would have to pay for it, so they rigged up my bike to save the shop the purchase fee. Understand?lol,

Thats what it sounded like, just giving you a hard time.

But yeah, those shops like to screw you around on warranties thats for sure.

eximports certainly has a reputation dont they?

when i got back into biking a couple years ago i was after a ducati, after doing some research on service costs and eximports, i decided on a suzuki sv650 which i recently traded on a Triumph Speed Triple. I think i made the right decision!

First of all, "assertained", is spelled ascertained, and you used it in the wrong context. You should have typed, "I avoided sounding technical, so there wouldn't be any communications problems." And if you go to a dealership needing service or parts, one of the first things you should tell them is that the bike is under warranty. You should also try and work something out before being belligerent, (that means angry and aggressive), before demanding to see people. I am not saying that the dealerships are ALWAYS good people, but the more you tell them, the harder it is for them to screw you. Maybe things didn't get done because you and the management didn't understand each other.

Second, you could only go 95, poor baby. Take it to the track or something man. That is too fast to be going on the streets, period. It's riding like that, that makes police and cagers hate us. You're going to get yourself or someone else hurt or killed. I suggest you take an MSF course or maybe a big dose of common sense. We all get a wild hair every now and then, but there is a fine line between having a good time and endangering people's lives.

Third, the solution for you bike is prolly something simple like throttle bodies, a malfunction in the ECU, an 02 (oxygen) valve, or some type of EXUP-type device/servo motor that regulates your air/fuel mixture. These things break sometimes, or are defective, there is no need to get pissy about it. Just tell the dealer your problem the best you can, and solve it the best you can. If that doesn't work try again.

Sorry if I beat a dead horse a little bit guys and gals, but I think this guy needed it. Ok, rant over now.

Bryan
