Oh dear !

customer , hello i think i have a problem …

me , what ?

customer , i don’t have any gears …

me , well bring it in , lets have a look …..

it would seem that , customer did an oil change 2500 mls ago , and the oil has gone somewhere else …

rear output bearing has failed .

gearbox is so damaged it isn’t worth fixing .

Servicing your bike

You don’t have to go to an authorized dealer . Provided the service is done to the standard the factory set ( not hard ) using genuine parts ( to support the factory ) the service book is filled in , all the right oils are used , and all the items on the maintenance schedule are completed .

There is a piece of E.U. law that allows you to do this . It was designed to stop the monopoly of franchised dealers/importers .

how not to have an alarm fitted

v7 alarm 001 v7 alarm 002

This is an alarm removed in 15 mins from a V7 . Fitted by a Datatool Dealer . Bike came to a halt , because it was so badly fitted . i don’t know any alarm fitter who would have done it like this , it was embarrassingly bad . Have spoken to Datatool who want it back , so they can see what has been done to it .

there is a wire to sense that the ignition has been switched on ….the wire was poked into the ignition live …it is supposed to be soldered in .

Hopefully a new unit is on it’s way , and a letter will be sent to the fitting dealer .
