    So I take the bike in for an inoperable neutral inducator. They find a clutch actuator ( or done such thing)!problem, something covered by warranty ( yes!) and keep it two weeks more, then fix a recalled item. Today I get a call that there is a crack in a manifold weld, which OF COURSE isn't covered.
    $500 to fix. I'm thinking I'll wait till I notice a noise.

    What year is your Hypermotard SP, James? I assume it's out of warranty and that's why the crack in the manifold is not covered.

    It's a 2014 with an extended warranty still good, but exhaust components are not covered.

    I'll go up next week and retrieve it from Livermore , then I can see exactly what is cracked.
    This weekend I have an electrical contractor to deal with.

    When I got my Kawi, I seriously considered getting the extended warranty after it paid off so well on my BMW.
    I'm glad I didn't. It would have been a total waste of money.
    Come back to Japanese, James.. you know you want to.

    Heather's been suggesting I just get a backup bike for a while now, but I would have to finance it...

    Have them snap a close-up pic, then a couple more progressively farther back for reference and text/email to you. Common practice, we do it all the time.

    Hold the boat here James.

    Isn't this the same outfit you targeted in a public rant, then asked for--and received--references to alternative Ducati shops of impeccable reputation?

    What, pray tell, is it doing back there again?

    Are you aware that an extended warranty is just an insurance policy, and that any qualified shop can handle the claims same as a dealership?

    Think about it. Don't be tricked into believing warranty claims are valid only with the business that lost your trust.

    Dealers don't seem to find problems until the warranty runs out !
    I rode my beemer to Ted Porters (scotts valley) He checked my rear shock and said it was sticking ,on compression stroke , and by the way it rides like ****. Should be warranty Ted said .Took it to Cal moto M.View Tuesday They ran tests on it they said it was fine .I told him it rides hard a rock, it has a dampening problem . They said you may have preload to tight
    ( I said it's backed out )Then they said it's the spring is for heavy rider and then wrote a me a diagram of how to adjust the screw dampening adjuster that will help .I said look at the shock there is no screw ! He said its there somewhere you just can't see it ! Excuses ! Excuses ! ( my bike has esa there is no screw !)He was mentioning dampening adjustments for a non esa shock. It still is under factory warranty. What a waste of time. I guess if I had bought a bunch of new bikes from them they might have wanted to fix it ? Probably not until warranty runs out.

    If you own Ducati's maybe 3 or 4
    I was thinking of buying a used multi 1100s until I read about the plastic tank leaks ,soft valve guides , leaking clusters and so on

    If you own a BMW, it's always good to have two bikes. :lol:lol The BMW would be the first bike to break down.
