Need help, check the paint
As I mentioned in the other thread, I have white '18 model. The tank is painted OK but the side inserts are white as well with very tiny coat of paint on it and no clear coat. So, they have no shine and the surface of finish is rough.
I have great dealer. Before me going to independent paint shop, I decided to stop by the dealer this morning. He admits the problem, it's impossible not to see it. He called main Suzuki importer for Portugal and they believed our story. They asked for day or two to find white bike boxed and open it to check.
At the same time, my dealer had an idea to order new parts and if they're painted well, he'll simply apply warranty and replace them. If they're the same, then we'll together look for solution with paintshop and he'll send ordered ones back. So, I'll give Suzuki one week.
Is there anyone out there with white bike?
Can you, please, check and compare white inserts paint quality with tank paint?
I looked at new 650's on dealers showroom floor, he had no 1000 at the moment. All 650's had nice shiny inserts with rich clear coat on them.
