I CAN'T TAKE ANYMORE. I have a new f7 and am I worried about problems ?, NO. I have a warranty and a good dealer (hard to find sometimes) IF I have alot of problems or don't like the sled, he will make it right. Thats the way it should be. If your dealer gives you a hard time about warranty get a new one. In 98' I blew up my 600zr , dropped it off at noon with a melted piston and scored cylinder, 5pm same day he calls me at home and says sled is ready to go. I asked him if he had the parts in stock and he said "NO,I TOOK THEM OFF A NEW ONE", every year he parts out a couple of new ones just for this reason. IF he sold old moto-skis guess what I would be riding, a 340 super sonic or something . WINTER IS TO SHORT FOR WIMPERING.
