Well, the dealer's service dept has had my 8 days now. They didnt get the transmission housing in till yesterday (wednesday) afternoon. The service manager said he'd try to get it on the lift wednesday before they closed, or if they didnt have time today. well, i went down there about 4pm today expecting to get my bike. they still havnt started on it. i talked with the guy thats supposed to work on my bike, he was working on an ATV. said its been in there for over a month, and had priority...apparently the owner really screwed something up.
I dont know why one of the other techs wasnt working on the strom, i'm assuming they weren't too busy considering they were standing around outside.
So i talked with the dealership owner (he's been really helpfull since before i bought the bike) and he said they should be able to get it done tomorrow, i'm hopping this means he's going to either get one of the other techs to do it, or ask that one guy to take the 30 minutes out from the ATV to pop off the old housing and bolt the new one down.
If its not done tomorrow, i'm a) not going to be happy, and b) have a talk with owner about why the heck its taking so long; and if that doesnt go well c) have a talk with the Better Business Bureau
