Warning to all

THIS IS JUST A WARNING TO STAY AWAY FROM CENTRAL FLORIDA POWER SPORTS ON ORANGE BLOSSOM TRAIL IN ORLANDO FL.

Here is my story:
So I took my 07 600rr in perfect working condition up to a local dealer to trade up for a web advertised used 08 1000rr. Had the bike for 6 days and the crank case started making a ticking sound.
I took the 1000rr back to the dealer and showed them what is up, me being an idiot didn't buy an extended warranty. However, the dealer said honda has a recall on 08 engine noise and might cover it. So they took my bike apart, inspected everything, ordered a few parts to replace some worn out clutch pieces. Reassembled and still making the noise.
Next the dealer took photos and a video and sound clip of the motor and sent it off to honda for review. Honda took 5 days to respond and stated that the noise I have is not the noise they're going to cover.
So now it's been over 3 weeks, bike is still at dealership. Honda told the dealer to check a few additional parts or spec. turns out the mainshaft in transmission is bent. part #23211-MFL-000, in order to replace it they are going to need to remove the motor from my bike.

Dealer says since no warranty was purchased it's on me to pay 1100 bucks to get a bike i owned for 6 days fixed. My 600 had 15k miles on it, original clutch, I've been on dirt bikes since i was 9 years old, I know how to ride a bike. Shouldn't the dealer inspect the 1000 for these types of issues before selling it to the public?

Hey guys Finally have an update:

so after having my bike for 46 days, the dealer finally fixed the problem, mainshaft in the transmission was bent somehow. 1200 bucks later it's fixed, however the check engine light is on because of the exhaust servo is not reading correctly. They ordered the part but it wasn't in yet. Told me i could take it, ride it, then bring it back when it came in. But the best part isn't over yet....
3 days after getting it back there is a massive oil puddle under the bike, i check and it looks like the oil pan is leaking like a mofo. I call em up and they say we're only 6 miles from your house, can u ride it in. As it's warming up to ride it to them coolant starts pouring onto my driveway. You have no idea how pissed i was. I have no other transportation so I rode it there. They kept my bike for another week, not returning my calls when I was calling them daily. Finally they delivered the bike again today. I told them I'd never step foot on their property ever again. Pulled all fairings to check their work, looks much better now, no leaks, new fluids, rode it 100 miles, and she's good to go i hope. shifts like brand new.

Moral of the story. STAY AWAY FROM CENTRAL FLROIDA POWER SPORTS ON ORANGE BLOSSOM TRAIL, ORLANDO FL. ONE OF THE GUYS THAT WORKS THERE WHO I BECAME FRIENDS WITH, I WONT NAME HIM, TOLD ME THEIR COME BACK RATE FOR WORK IS TREMENDOUS, THEY HAVE HARLEY TECHS WORKING ON SPORT BIKES. AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE.

07 600rr: PCIII, Protons, Jardine RT-1, Sportech Windscreen, K&N, Tripage Tail Light and Adjustable FE, DDM HID's.

07 600 straight up trade for an 08 1000? first of all things dont add up here and you didnt happen to notice it. anytime someone is trying to trade something more valuable for something not as much... well you get the picture. its kinda like your trading a honda civic for an s2000... it doesnt make sense other than it seems to be a good deal... but with future headaches.

How was the sales contact written? Was it sold as is no warranty? If so that falls back on you. Here in California we have a lemon law that prevents this though. Sometimes this hippy state does something right. Lol

Wow what a horror story, that sucks but glad its all back to normal and you have your baby. I actually took my 06 600rr to trade it in there for a new 09 600rr or a new 1000rr but the guy there was a ******* joke. They were like oh, you are missing 2 bolts on the rear tire hugger, some bolts on the fairing(lower) and there is a crack in the upper so its worth 5500 normally but we will only give you 3200..

Anyhow my boy Matt bought his 09 600rr from them and had real good luck.. Brand new bike out the door back when they were just starting to sell 2010s and he paid 7100 otd.

That sucks. Thankfully, I don't think I'll ever have to deal with them, but it's good to warn other members here who might.

I find it quite amazing that there are states where established businesses can sell goods to a consumer with no ongoing liability for their quality (other than for misrepresentation).

In the UK, when a business sells goods (including vehicles) to a consumer, the consumer is provided with enhanced protection under the Sale of Goods Act. This effectively gives the consumer a "free" warranty that the goods will be of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, free from minor defects, safe and durable.

That's why costly extended warranties are almost seen as a scam over here; you're already covered by statute.

e.g. You buy a mint '08 1000RR with 2,000 miles on the clock, never crashed, rallied or raced. It breaks down after 6 days. The seller has to prove that the goods were of satisfactory quality. If the breakdown hasn't been caused by the consumer being an idiot then they can pursue the garage for a no cost repair, a replacement vehicle (if reasonably practicable), or a refund.

For once, I'm glad I live in the UK! (Sorry for rubbing it in AcidVW!).

Same over here mate, used cars/bikes that cost more than 6k have a statutory 3 month 5000km warranty. And a 1kRR is going to run you a lot more than 6k here. On top of that, if it breaks after a month and they hold the bike for 1 month to repair it, you still have 2 months warranty... it essentially goes on pause while they have it.

Yup, our vehicles are cheap but they come at a price. That's why if you're buying something expensive you have a mechanic look at it first.

Like sincal says, if there is no warranty on the sale you are responsible for whatever happens after you ride off the lot. You never know what can break even with newer bikes, so its always a good idea to get some type of warranty. Unless you are 100% sure the bike is in good condition and you checked it yourself.

Good to hear you got it all straightened out tho. The 08 1k's were know to have some issues off the bat since its a new design.

Would be nice to have that luxury they have in UK/AUS with free warranty, but that does come at a price. wish they had that here, but i'd rather save money up front and make sure you are buying a good condition bike.
