cracked left middle cowl

Hi! I've had my new CBR for a week now, and just noticed the left middle cowl is cracked where the front signal light is attached. I only rode it last weekend and parked it until today. I assume it was cracked while in the crate. My dealer is ordering another panel in without much fuss, but I seem to remember reading about cracked plastic on newer bikes, but can't find it. Was this one of the problem areas? I'd like to hand them something in print about others having similar problems. Any help would be appreciated.

Btw, the last 6 digits of the VIN on my bike is 100010. Thought that was pretty cool! CBR "1000". Perfect "10".

A buddy of mine's plastic was cracked when he bought it and replaced with no worries.

Re: cracked left middle cowl

I had some replaced as well...kinda sucks but oh well, I have also had some of the lovely paint scratching that is becoming notorious on the plastic tanked bikes...which really sucks, other than that I love my bike

Re: cracked left middle cowl

I noticed that too about the scratches. Even more so after going over the bike with a fine tooth comb after finding the one crack. This clear coat is crap, and it's only 7 days old!
