I bought my 2008 250xcf-w about 3 months ago. It is an awesome bike, and I really enjoy it. When I rode it for the first time right after I bought it, I noticed that the exhaust leaked from the joint between the mid-pipe and slip-on. The leak would blow right on my boot/foot and it would get very hot. Since it was brand new, it still had its 30 day warranty, so I took it back to the dealership so they could fix it. When I got it back all they did was put silicon RTV on the joint and said that that leak was normal and that the silicon would seal it temporarily. Well, now I'm at 15 hours on the bike and the silicone has blown out and its doing it again. My question to you guys is what should I do? Should I talk to the dealership again? Maybe talk to another dealership? I don't know how well that will work since it has now been 3 months. I think its a manufacturing defect and should be taken care of. Do any of you have similar issues? Any advice would be great, thank you!
