Have a good look at the sale of goods act - it still applies - and you are certainly allowed more than you were given. You cold also always write to the BBC - they love this sort of thing.

Blimey that's bad - thought being left waiting for 5 weeks for a part by motogb/SYM was bad. But from Yamaha?! I thought the Japanese would be better than this!
They may well be - Yamaha UK have been pretty unhelpful and the UK dealer pretty lax (though I guess dealings with Yamaha Japan might have held things up). I've been told I should e-mail Yamaha Japan and complain as they take complaints of customer (dis)satisfaction rather more seriously than Yamaha UK seem to.

Us bikers need to toughen up sometimes when we get treated like second class citizens. Not criticizing you Grumpy...just the way the m/c industry often treats it's customers. It's like they live in the past. :(
Imagine if you couldn't test drive a car before you purchased it...but that's the normal course of affairs with motorcycles, etc. NO respect... :cry:

Yes I`ve left a lot of bikes over the last few years as the dealers said no test rides.

So you pay the price and sign the forms, go up the road and find a fault/s they did`nt even spot ( possibly !!! ) what do you do.

Suffer a lot of grief I imagine.

MR G has been treated very badly.

Yamaha have been pants basically.

My son and I bought a lovely 50cc scooter for him from a delaer that were fantastic, but he had a friend bought one that was held together with bits of tape etc, really, from another dealer you found when you needed to access things.

It, of course did`nt last long.
