Hey guys thanks for spending so much time working on your bikes and giving us all insight. Since I don't have all that much time to work on the darn thing I have only been able to ride 3 times since I picked it up in Nov/00, and that was all in the first week. After it ran perfect for that week I was amazed that everyone else was having all these probs. I had to leave it sitting for about a month after that and have not been able to get two laps out of it since. Anyways to get to my question - I was just wondering about you guys that are always taking your bikes to the dealers, how much money are you forking out to them?? Any time that I go talk to the place were I bought mine in Colorado Springs, CO they just want me to drop my bike off for a few days and are not to helpfull with giving me any advice. Now I don't want to be draining my wallet on service for a brand new bike - especially service that can not guarantee a fix for the problem. So what are they charging you for their time??? Hey Merfman who are you talking to at Apex?? and how well do you know him??
