Dropped my Fury off yesterday afternoon to allow it to cool before my 8:00 AM appointment today for the initial service. Called at 3:00 to see when I could pick it up, and they had not looked at it yet! What the hell was the purpose of making me set an appointment if they were going to ignore it? Can they not determine or estimate how much time it will take for their repairs to keep those of use that make appointments in and out? Anyway just thought I would rant to the people who would understand. From now on, I will service the bike myself, it is cheaper and I am not down on my riding time as much.

Everyone there has to test drive it before they work on it.:p Should've taken it to an Alabama dealer!;)

Yeah I hate when you have a service appointment like that and they take longer than it should, never fails. I'm definitely going to have to buy a service manual so I can do most if not all my stuff myself and save time and money. Being in the Army you would think that I would be used to it since everything we do is "hurry up and wait", but it's still irritating.

My 4k visit resulted in one of the spark plug boots hanging out of the cylinder cover. all the nylon washers were missing, too. Ran it on 3 plugs for over 500 miles before I noticed it hanging out. The service mgr. never returned my calls. So, I called the sales guy who sold it to me. He got the service mgr. on the line, finally. We're going to work something out, I assure you. People are so easily distracted these days.

Must be your dealer,,,my local Honda dealer had me drop it off the nite before,,seeing heads needed to be cool to adjust valves,,seeing the 600 mile service is a adjust valves if required,,but mine was done by 1pm the next day, I was told that they were full and it might be longer. I have to have them do those services under the warrenty so that if something goes wrong with the bike there liable not me,,if you arent ASE certified during the warrenty phase and a major repair comes up,,they could say your bike wasnt serviced by a certified tech and we cant help you..just my opinion.
