I just purchased a non current new 2008 black and yellow CBR1000RR from my local dealer. I am thrilled to death with the looks and can't wait to ride it. But I am having a problem with one of the yellow side panels. I gave the bike a quick look over at the shop then loaded it onto the trailer and took it home. When I got home I was walking around the bike on the trailer in the sun and noticed a crack in the right fairing. I took a bunch of pictures and then when the dealer opened I took it back. After the salesman looked it over he discovered that it was cracked all the way through in a couple of directions. Now they are stating that warranty won't cover it, and they are stating that they didn't see it during their inspection. I didn't see it either but I didn't get down on my hands and knees with a flashlight. They picked the bike up from an other dealer and today they are going to call them an ask if they noticed anything. I know for sure that I did nothing to cause this, I have only sat on it twice. Now I am positive that this other dealer even if he did notice this won't say he did. This is the first and probably the last new bike I am ever going to purchase, and I just can't get over this crack. I already have a 929 with a few cracks and faded paint for canyoncarving and a ripping around our tiny track so I was just going to use the new one for car shows, organized rides, that sort of thing. I was just going to bite the bullet and buy a new panel until I found out how much they cost. I don't want to pursue legal action because I am going to have to deal with these people in the future, but I am having a hard time listing to all the ways a fairing could have been broke when all I did was load it on to a trailer and take it a couple of miles. I was prepared to just ride it as is until they pointed out that the fairing is cracked all the way to the edge and that type of crack just spreads like a virus. I don't think that there is going to be any solution that is going to make me and the dealer happy. I should be shopping for a undertail and exhaust not fairings, especially since I haven't even ridden it yet. Has anyone experienced this before? Is there any contact info for Honda besides the dealer? Of coarse the checks were cashed the day I wrote them, also I don't really want to return this bike. I know there probably isn't any easy answer but any advise would be greatly appreciated.
