What a pain! Are they having a tough time getting the parts? Mine has taken a small spill while parked thanks to an unknown flat tire. I'm in the midst of trying to fix it up. The mess has kept her off the road during some of the very best riding weather!
I got mine at Clinton Cycles. I didn't like the games Pete's was playing or I'd have got it there. If I had it all to do over again, I'd get it at Frederick Yamaha. They seemed to be the most honest and have done the best service. Granted I haven't tried the service of Pete's. But that's because when I called for a price they told me I'd be the red-headed step child in their service dept. if I bought at another dealer.
