rous44 Posted May 25, 2010 Share Posted May 25, 2010 Here's my sad story. By no means tragic, compared to many, but distressing nonetheless. I bought a '05 1200RT with 900 miles on it. Currently have 2300 miles. In the local dealership for a tune up when I got the call. Service manager says when they removed the valve cover a head bolt was laying there, loose in the cover. The bolt had fallen out of the head and the threads were stripped in the block. Cost $500 to repair. According the manager, the only way this could have happened was at the 600 mile when the heads are torqued and someone over did it. My questions: The service was done for the original owner at A&S in Sacramento, Ca. I live in Kansas City. Should I go to them for compensation? OR: I have an extended warranty , transfered from the original owner. It's from a warranty company with a less than stellar reputation and my local dealer has had nothing but bad experiences with them. So I'm on my own trying to collect from them. Any suggestions?
