We're not having that kind of relationship, unless of course, I keep the bike.
They misrepresented the bike as dual-sport (DL650). That's bad enough... I sprain my knee attempting to get through 2 inches of sand (according to the off-road instructions that they issue with the bike!).
I drop it in the barn, on a concrete floor, and the left turn-signal housing flies into about 6 pieces. The next morning, in daylight, I go to see what exactly broke. One piece broke, the black housing that surrounds the bulb.
I take apart the right turn-signal to see how it goes together and find that the housing on that one has a long crack in it.
Ironically, I was impressed and pleased to see what a simple repair it was... one piece of plastic, two screws!
I go to Cycle world of Daytona to get the part (I don't live in Daytona but have an address and mother there, and I bought the bike there). They tell me that that part is not sold separate. The assembly is $58 with tax and shipping. Well, I say, replace the right side under warranty (I did not break the right side, it came that way) and I'll keep that piece for the one I busted.
No, they say.
Go 1.5 hours back home and 1.5 hours back, with the whole motorcycle (with the part that they're holding in their hands, inspecting it), so we can inspect the whole thing, and then replace the part under warranty.
So I say, oh no, goodbye.
This bike is going to someone who'll subordinate them self to the degradation.
**** Suzuki! We're not having that kind of relationship. Unless, of course, I keep the bike.
