Why even offer a warranty?

Hey guys, I bought my 700xx earlier this year so I'm still within my 1 year warranty. I took it to the dealership because it was creeping forward while in gear with the clutch pulled all the way in. The parking brake had also stopped working. After 2 weeks, I got a phone call from them letting me know that it was ready and that it was going to be around $100. I told them it was under warranty and he said that my problems weren't covered by warranty. He also told me that they had to put a new sparkplug in because mine was fouled and that was on the ticket as well. The plug that I had in there only had about 3 rides on it. It had no starting problems when I dropped it off! What the hell?? Sorry, just needed to vent!

Damn 2 weeks !! Your plug shouldnt have been fouled already either. The clutch adjustment and parking brake adjustment should have taken 5 minutes. The parking brake on my 700 went out also, I thought that was crap. Im not sure it ever worked. They dont cover much under the warranty. No wearing parts are covered like clutch or brakes. I would be angry too ! It shouldnt have cost that much nor taken that long !

I did tell them to fix it. I just assumed that it would be covered under warranty.

Things like that ARE covered by warranty... at least at my dealer. Except for the plug that's a wear item, the rest is just adjustments and were probably a result bad set up from the dealer in the first place.

My parking brake has been fixed twice at the dealer, and they adjusted my clutch once too, all under warranty. I can adjust it all myself now that I took the time to learn how. could be cuz I payed for the 3 year extended warranty and the routine maintenance package though.

How is cable adjustment covered under a warranty? Thats like saying the warranty covers your chain when it gets loose, do they tighten it for you?

I never take out warranty on my Honda's . The first I go to a race the warranty is void . Honda's have served me well and haven't any problems over the years.
