When I 1st bought my bike, I told the dealer to do the mods and put on the E2 pipe. They said they would rejet the carb for the pipe and put in a 48 pilot. I took it apart last night and what do you know-It had a 45. I even asked them when I picked it up if they had put in the 48 and they assured me they had. I'm done with these bozo's :D Rejetted my carb, Installed the AIS kit, changed my pipe and installed my IMS 3.4 Gallon tank all within about 4 beers. And I don't even know what I'm doing :naughty: :D Here's to the dealer- :naughty:

How do you know that it wasnt the mechanic who FORGOT to install it and lied to cover his own ass?

If so, he represents the dealer doesn't he. If you buy a GMC truck and have probelms you don't take it to GMC, you take it to the dealer regardless of who works on it :naughty:

This kinda shit happens way too much.
Even with the shops around me.

I remember picking up my new sled from the polaris dealer and discovering after I brought it home that none of the grease fitings had any grease.

I paid for dealer prep but what did I get for it?

So can we play "guess the dealer"?

My guess is SC Motors in Newhall:

A) You're in So Cal (based on the ill-fated day at Randsburg).

:naughty: Nobody leaves a bigger trail of pissed off customers than SC Motors.

Other guesses?

Keep in mind, all dealers are independently owned. They have a franchise to sell the Yamaha, and it has some requirements, but they are independent, not manufacturer owned. If you were charged for a jet and didnt get it, you need to take back the slip and get your money back. The store may know nothing about it, you may have a lazy tech who lied on the repair order and said he did it. You could fix 2 problems, you'r refund and the termination of a worthless lying tech.

Just a little farther north- We're in Visalia, CA- Should have known better I guess when the Service Mgr didn't know what a starter jet was even though it is listed in the Yammy parts manual :naughty:

Toyota,

You're absolutely right-I guess I just expect better being in the service industry myself :naughty:

Well, the saying goes. A shop is only as good as their worst tech! :D As a tech for a dealership, I know how folks feel when it comes to this stuff. We are a first class store, and any tech doing this dishonest stuff would be out of work in short order. Management wont tolerate it at all. I treat everyones vehicle as if it were my own and when I'm done, you'd never know I had it apart, ie all hardware, clips in the exact location. Of course, I've been there for 16+ years, and our senior tech has been there for 34 years! That makes me the "new guy" :naughty: :D
