Just a warning to those who may be planning, like me, to take their bike to a dealer they didnt originally purchase their bike from. I got my used CBR from a dealer quite far from where I live, so phoned my nearest dealer. They asked if I bought the bike from them, I said no. The guy then said well we are prioritising our own customers so it will be a 2 month waiting list! This is Smiths Honda near Chester.
Phoned the next nearest dealer in Rochdale, he said fine no problem, will order the parts in and let you know. When I mentioned the problem I had with previous dealer he said well sounds like they dont want the work. Then when I told him who the dealer was he confirmed that was probably why they gave the 2 month waiting time. As it is its going to be quite a long bike ride to take it to Rochdale so I am wondering how much success I would get if I wrote to Honda UK asking compensation for the petrol and extra miles put on the bike through no fault of my own.
