Hey Guys, A mate (call him Ben) has a new CBR600, first owner, he noticed the engine was making a rattling noise.. He took it back to where he bought it and (after some preliminary checks) was told that the engine had to be taken apart to replace a part inside.. ... well.. if the engine was under warranty, shouldn't he get a new engine? Anyway.. the dude at the dealership told Ben that the engine was covered; however the labour wasn't, which means Ben is looking like he'll be out of pocket about $700! ... Is this even true?.. warranty excludes labour? Ben had missed his 12k service; however did get it serviced @ 15K, a little late for whatever reason, but it still got serviced. Dealership goes on to state that because he missed the service, the labour is not covered. ... ok sounding a little sus now, and I suspect I know why.. Ben can't speak english all that well, and he had lost the receipt for the 15k service; however the logbook was stamped, but not from the dealership in question. Need some expert intel on this matter... a) If an engine of a new bike fails for whatever reason, would an entire entire replacement under warranty be in order? b) For work carried out under warranty, would this exclude labour by default? c) Missing a service by 3,000 kms on the dial isn't that hard to fathom, is this grounds to void any aspect of the warranty in any way? Can anyone shed some light on this at all?
