Although I believe in supporting your local dealership, it is not in the dealers rights to deny a factory recall service. If it is done call the manufacturer. It goes against all company policies.

A reputable dealer won't deny factory service. Recall, repair, replace or otherwise. That's what makes them reputable! Or one of the many things.

no matter where you buy your motorcycle at, as long as you have the manufacturer warranty covers it, you are good to go from CA to NY or anywhere.

I'd watch your wallet when doing business at Chicago Cycle. They will try to scam you more ways than you would ever know.

Dealers make money from sales and they make money from service. 'Service' is not a charity performed only for valued customers, it is the dealers bread, and sales is the butter. Having said that, beware the low balling dealer. A dealer in my area always advertises the lowest price, has a great web site too! People come in from hundreds of miles away.. They always end up paying more for their new bikes than if they would have shopped at home. Its called 'up selling' (did you want that supersized sir?)

I've bought and sold all my used bikes using Cycle Trader. When I buy new I try to find a leftover and save a couple of bucks that way. I've also bought and sold parts on craigs list with out any problems. Just use basic business sense, for example a bike at a few grand below list, or some b.s. payment scheme or showing up for a test ride with no riding gear.. Pretty easy to spot if you look. I've had guys pay by check for bikes as well, I just hold the title till I take the check to their bank and cash it. For parts it's cash or cashiers check only. The furthest I've had to go is about a 150 mile round trip to buy my ZX1000R but it just made a nice ride home.



As far as warranty work goes, if they ask if I bought the bike there I say "yup"...



f**k 'em if they can't take a joke.

I'm always upfront about buying on the net - I will tell the sales guy I'm looking at X if I like it I'll shop the net for the best price but since you've helped me you will get the last word and the opportunity to match the price I get on the net. I've bought serveral cages this way and no sales man has had a problem with it and it saves me a lot of haggling.
