I would like to share this
I got a recall in the mail for my 2003 Mitsubishi eclipse. Yes a import. The recall was for passenger side sunvisor, if visor is down and airbag goes off it can cause serious injuries.
I thought to myself, interesting old car paid for import. New bike still making payments and yet no recall on woodruff key, lag and leap, or first to second gear. ALL are which life threatening since it is a motorcycle with no airbag or metal around us. And we are suppose to be proud we ride a Harley yet our issues on a new model goes ignored.
What has anyone done? I mean I've read a fired up member get worked up over a cheap tach that was defective but I haven't read what we should be doing about these real issues on HD Street most of us are paying for.
Besides dealing with it, like lag and leap keep tank full. First to second seems to be acceptable? I don't get it, am I the only one ticed at this poor quality and not being heard? My first to second, I just start out in second I'm tired of people riding up my backside. Just irritating I pay for junk, but a old car, the manufacturer is worried about a sunvisor.
Myself, I wrote HD no word, surprise. The dealer thinks I'm nuts about the gears and don't know how to ride. I'm new to harley but not street bikes. Never ever came across gear shifting issues unless it was a old piece of junk and even then it was a cable or linkage.
I've also filed a formal complaint with NHTSA (highway safety).
I guess I'm wondering what if anything has anyone else done to get these looked at.
