Well, I have certainly put in the effort to communicate, but my messages go unanswered and there are just not any answers to be found.
Reading about guys getting new engines under warranty would make one think that at least putting in new valve parts would at least be a start. You writing this one off as a business loss?

Also, that sticker you sent me sure does shine in the sunlight making it much more noticeable than all the other stickers I have on the hatch window on my truck cap! (y)

Great to hear of one out in the wild!

1 year, 4 months update: NO communication from dealer for several months, so I called and got them on the phone. They are still waiting for parts. I worked with RE in India for the past month over the phone and via txt to have the bike replaced with a new unit. A bizarre experience, to say the least. Got nowhere as today they told me there is nothing they can do on their end. I assume they have RENA involved, as well, so it appears they are not interested in making this right.

I filed a lawsuit today with an attorney out of California.

Just a suggestion... but the attorney general of whatever state where you bought the bike is a good (and free) place to start. I've started there on several problems, and when they get involved, things tend to happen. They don't like problem businesses, especially if they have a complaint from more than one citizen.

PS especially since you're a business owner - California and Montana, if I'm not mistaken. I don't know about Montana, but if you can get the attention of the California attorneys general office, you might be able to get something going.

@OldGuy I do appreciate your advice, however, I've reached the end of my rope with this ordeal and I generally take the path of least resistance when it comes to legal matters. The lemon law suit is a slam-dunk and requires very little effort on my part, so that is very attractive to me. I feel like I've given RE every possible chance to remedy this, but I must move on at this point.
