I finally got my bike back from the dealer this afternoon, after being without it for over a week. After a bit of arguing they agreed to install the stator I provided, at no charge. Friday will be 4 weeks that I've had the bike. I got a new one from RM stator, they are in Quebec. The stator was $165 CDN delivered to my door. I ordered Monday but that was a holiday here so they shipped on Tuesday and I got the part Wednesday. I was quoted $472 list from the dealer which they said they would give me at cost for $312.

I did the same thing in my truck but with a alternator. They said they couldnt put it in because they couldn't guarantee the work. Said that was fien because the price they wanted me to pay was 250 bucks more than I paid at a aftermarket place. Would have jsut put it in myself but it was already in thier shop tore apart so let them go for it.

Yep that's how repair shops are... stingy for the almighty $. They get pissed when people bring in their own parts. I think it's stupid to say no to installing a good part someone brings in to a shop.

The only reason I went back to the dealer at all was because I only had the bike for 18 days. I wanted them to give me something. In retrospect I would have had the thing running a lot sooner had I done everything my self. They were probably grateful I didn't insist on them paying for the part or call OMVIC on them.
