yamaha Complaint - Warranty - 2003 Yamaha YZFR1 Motorcycle
HOPKINSVILLE, KENTUCKY -- I recently purchased a NEW Yamaha YZFR1 motorcycle from Dukes Perfofmance, Ft. Campbell Blvd., Hopkinsville KY 42240. I have a problem with the shifting of gears from 5th to 6th gear grinding and popping out of gear. I was told by the dealer if the bike doesn't do it every time it shifts, there is nothing wrong with it. I contacted Yamaha Corp. and they sided with the dealer saying maybe I should bring the bike in when it is warmer to have it worked on and they won't back their warranty on a NEW motorcycle still clearly under warranty considering it is only 2 months old.
