So I've been riding for 6 weeks now as a learner rider and loving it. Unfortunately I have run into a few issues with the bike. It all started just a few days after purchasing the bike, riding down the freeway when all of a sudden when changing from 5th to 6th gear the engine cuts out. Being new to riding I wasn't the quickest to pull in the clutch, and suffered a rather nasty jolt forward, almost stacking the bike. I took the bike to Peter Stevens' service center, who apparently adjusted the clutch cable and voila "Problem fixed". Wrong. The next week the same issue occurred, as well as being unable to kick the bike into neutral whilst the engine was running. So the time comes for my first service (1000km's), sure enough I take it into Peter Stevens and mention my ongoing issues with the clutch so they could check up on that. I received a call today from them that went something like: "Hey, we found the issue with the clutch, basically it wasn't installed correctly and thus whenever you turned it rubbed against your instrument dash and rear brake cable." Having only bought the bike 6 weeks ago, as a brand new 2010 model this seemed to be a rather major - and dangerous issue. It had already caused two near misses for me. They now want to charge me somewhere in the vicinity of $470 for the bike's first service. I have two questions; 1. Is there some sort of argument I have, or even something in PS's customer service dealings that would void me from having to pay for the first service since they sold me a rather faulty bike. and 2. How much does it usually cost for a first bike service? $470 seems very steep... Any help is appreciated, cheers!
