buy new bikes and still no good

i bought new bike from wild west honda and they cleaned it all up and said i could take it home that day after they did all the oil changes and what not to the bike. so i have had it for a week and i started to smell some burning. So i started looking it over and come to notice there was no ****ing oil in the motor !!!! what the ****, so i know that motor is messed up. so i think im going to the dealership and go at with the people over there cuz that is so messed up. what do yall think on this should dealership fix the motor or trade out for a new one.
this was there last one they had of a 08.

wait, so there was ZERO oil in the motor? tell us what happened, like all the events leading to you checking the oil.

well after day 3 i smell burning and i call the dealership about it and they say its dirt and grime on the pipe. so i clean it all and ride for 2 more days and fairing screws fall out so i went to home depot today too pick some up so i could ride tonight. Well i was right by the motor looking at the glass hole and i can see silver. So im like ok, wait umm. so i open the cap and use a flashlight and i can see to the bottem of the motor, nice silver motor inside no oil.

so i think im going to have them pick the thing up. dont get me wrong i love this bike but i dont want to pay all that money for a 1 week ride.

Stand the bike up straight and then check the sight glass for the oil level.

It could be that the level was low but that there was oil in it.

How many miles did you ride before you smelled something?
Did it make any mechanical noises?

If you rode very much and there were no unusual noises, it will probably be ok, just make them check it out and MAKE SURE THEY NOTE IT in case of future trouble.

here's a stupid question...
Did you check the bike on a rear stand or with the kick stand down?
The only reason I say this is because with my first bike I checked the oil and it was low too. Until I stand it straight up with a stand or holding straight up.


The dealer should be held responsible (imo)
good luck

do that. if still no oil, then they definitely owe you a new engine or bike. thats why you pay the setup fees. i doubt you messed with the oil/engine since you said you have under 400mi on it. what dealership did you get it from?

yeah, it would take more than a couple of miles but, if you rode like 100 miles you would have definitely known something was wrong.
More than a smell for sure.
