Yeah that's why I didn't wanna go there.....

Just hoping the guys at Stubbs get tired of seeing my bike in there and fix it this time. I don't wanna have to go the "Lemon law" route.

Lemon Law isn't too bad. You need to see if Suzuki has their own approved Arbritatration process. If they do, then its between you and them. Otherwise, it involves an outside source immediately. Likely they have their own Arbritration, for customer service. Not sure how the law relates to bikes or if it carries the same 6 month, three time visit as cars do.

thats why allot of companies now fix the problems. Rather than having to file a lemon law on them, the facotry or reps will take care of you allot of the time. I know this is off bike but a bro of mine had a 50k boat with all kind of problems, he called and talked to the reps, told them he was going to be filing a suit..... they came and got the boat, took it to tennessee and fix everything.. now he is a satisfied customer...

It simply sucks that people have to jump through such hoops to enjoy something they have invested time and money into! And not to jump on the “ever so popular” everyone says it boat! But I got a great attorney from work, if ya end up needing one Sean!

I just don't wanna go that route. In my opinion, I bought a warranty when I bought the bike. I paid for it when they said I had to pay for it. Why can't they fix the problem when I need the problem fixed? Is there another dealer I can take this to who maybe isn't so busy fixing other peoples small problems and would like to fix mine? The only place I've taken it is to Stubbs @ telephone.

I'm not sure why everyone keeps trying to point the finger at Stubbs. You said in your very first post that they have left it up to the Suzuki reps. A tech won't touch a bike for warranty work if the rep says no. If the techs were working on your bike, it has nothing at all to do with stubbs, or their technicians. Taking it to another dealer won't fix it either, because you'll still be dealing with what the reps say, not anyone at the dealership.

If suzuki has no official fix, you either have to live with the problem, until someone figures it out; or file a lemon law suit against them, get another bike and hope that one doesn't do it to.


Funny you called it a Harley spot though....mine doesn't leak a drop of oil, and your suckzuki can't stop!

Don't get me wrong!! I by no means am blaming Stubbs or the techs at Stubbs for the issue! Those guys are great and have treated me with all kinds of respect. I know they are just as agrivated as I am with the issue. Heck...they have to keep changing the oil on their dime everytime I take it in there. I'm just wondering if there is anyone here that might know of a way to fix it that way I can stop hounding Stubbs and Suzuki about the issue.

I don't have a problem with anyone at Stubbs, my ol' lady was the finance manager for a while over there. Those guys are the reason why I bought my bike there.

is there a way you can run the breather line into a small tank that can hold the excess oil as it gets hot... kinda like the coolant tank on a car?

I have been reading on another forum and they have mentioned a catch can. Havnt had the chance to look back in archives to see how it is done. They also mentioned a PCV valve put in the line and said they havnt had any problems, but there are a few other people who said it was a bad idea because it wouldnt relieve enuf pressure as need. ..............I'm lost..............

it seems that just a small like 1 quart container with a little hose barb on the end and a vent on the top would suffice... just whether or not there is a place to hide it

I would see what Stubbs says Sean. If you do put a pressure control valve in it should relieve the pressure with no problems. I think they have a setting at which it should relieve into the "overflow" resivior. Not a bad idea, just finding a place to put it.
