Thumbs down What would you do??

I took my bike in for a leaking fork seal, they fixed it under warranty for the second time but I had to replace the upper fork tube as it was pitted. They should have seen the pits the first time I brought it in. It was fixed at my expense, which is cool cause rocks are what did the damage and I agree that's not a warranty issue. Anyway they said they can't warranty things for me anymore as it's a track/race bike. I didn't remove the tape/wire and didn't put the mirrors back on, I left it track ready when I dropped it off.

What kinda shit is that, that's what these bikes are made for. That's like selling me a warranty for a 4x4 and saying I can't take it off road. I understand you can't warranty brakes, rotors, chains and other stuff but what the f*uck, if something electrical goes out I'm shit out of luck, that's not cool.

What would you do?

I'd try and take it to another dealer when/if something goes wrong with it.

Unfortunatly most warranty's state that they will not cover "racetrack" use.

DUH!!!

Tell them you went to an instructional course. That's not track use, it's instructional for street purposes. Tell them that they required no mirrors for instruction purposes.

That won't fly, I used to buy my tires there. Every month I came it for a new set. They know I've been going to the track a lot.

Track Days aren't racing....

Are they?? My shop knows I go to track days, a couple of the guys go too. After I crashed I never asked them to fix anything that was crash related, but they fixed things that clearly weren't related to the track (regulator rectifier for example).

As others have said, you might want to use a different shop altogether if they're gonna be like that.

Gob Bless Arizona Powersports. They have been the best dealer I've ever encountered.

Do you have any good shops down in your area, it might be worth the drive if something goes wrong?
