Part damage. What should i do?

I'm about to take delivery of my F4 1078 this coming week. Went to see the bike at the showroom on Saturday and to my horror, there is a deep scratch on the metal / alum part that's holding the handles together (cant bledi recall what it's called) besides greasy palm and finger marks all over the bike. The monkeys must hv climbed on the bike and god knows what they did.. and the dealer didn't do much to keep them away knowing that i've paid for it... F**k!!. Anyway, my question is, should i still sign on and take the bike home or get the dealer to sort it out first. I'm thinking of taking the bike home and pay them in full only when they sort it out. The dealer should be able replace just that part right under the warranty right? Just a bad bad start... bunch of wankers

It makes me wonder what's the rest of the bike looks like under the bodywork and where it is not visible. Be cautious !!! before you take delivery of the bike look it over and over. Have them replace all dammaged parts before you pick it up. Avoid this dealer in the future if possible. Find someone else to service it !!!

It is common practice to keep people off of sold bikes. Was the bike clean when you were there to arrange the sale? So now the problem is that this bike is no longer the NEW CLEAN bike you agreed to buy.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

The part should be replaced and the bike should be cleaned. Make no exceptions.

You paid/about to pay for a new bike and that's what you should get from the dealer--a new, unscratched bike!

DO NOT take delivery or sign anything till its right.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

Agree with all the previous comments, if you've paid for a new bike that's what you should get. NO exceptions.
