Makes it even more unacceptable. They must have lots of people buying two bikes from them - not.

Take it to other dealer. It's probably better to not waste any energy on this.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

I guess the pain is that you've two bikes under warranty and need to follow procedure otherwise I would get a shop that works with a first class mechanic. Also giving a second chance to the shop is always recommended.
I use most of times an official Suzuki mechanic and never had a single issue and he always mention that MV is a simple bike to work but in my opinion it's the mechanic professionalism that makes the difference.

Update (short & sweet)

GF emailed Dealer. Both bikes picked up within two weeks of email, on a Saturday morning. Bikes returned following Friday evening. Following Sunday (just gone), 100 mile trip out and what a joy it was.

Conclusion;
1) no more leaks from cylinder head on either bike
2) exhaust malfunction, gone
3) GF exhaust re cerakoted, for the third time (unfortunately an area of 15mm x15mm of cerakoting has come off the back box silencer (not Dealers fault), looks like coating not taken on metal (possibly grease)
4) no response or mention of the overfilling of the engine oil from the Dealer (let sleeping dogs lie)

Generally we are both happy with the outcome, time frame taken and most importantly we are very happy with our bikes again.
