What should the service manager do during delivery

Recommended Posts

fairorth
Just wondering about this.
 
I'm taking delivery of my bike Saturday. I have an appointment with the service manager to "go over everything" 
 
I was thinking I could do a couple of things.
 
1. take the bike out for a nice little 20-25 mile warm up then come back and ask them to do a quick oil change! I'll bring oil and filter.
 
2. ask him to adjust the shift lever and the hand levers too
 
3. adjust the suspension if needed (I'm 5'8" 165 so its probably right the way it comes)
 
anything else I should get them to do while I have them?

My bike had some slack in the throttle cable that was taken out at the first service (it seems a few of us have had this). I would not pay the dealer to do it, but if they want to do it for free....

Ask if there were any spare parts left over when they assembled the bike from the shipping crate.

Good answer!

OK, I'll bite. For real? What types of parts might be left over?
 
I'm guessing I'm probably tracking down a left handed smoke shifter here ...

A few of our members had an extra part or two in their tool bag, some found out the wrong bolt had been used on the fender and some had switches that were not plugged in.
