Good news but if they replaced the engine, they basically acknowledged fault and should've covered labor as well.
It looks like they wanted to split the loss with you.

That's terrible to be honest.

Thats great new, and know doubt a big relief, the motor is the most expensive part, can't imaging the labour cost would be 1/5th of that. You could look at it in the way you get a brand new motor, for the cost to fit it, not sure how many miles on the broken one, but maybe your ahead hear...  :002:

Good result.
How many hours does it take to fit an engine?

When the customer is paying, itll take twice as many charged hours vs a warranty job...

Sorry, diidnt spot the replies until now.

Labour... It took well under a day for one mechanic to remove/install and I suspect the dealership gave a helpful quote on the labour as well... cost was less than a valve check service.

I had 26k miles on the old engine, the new engine wont need a valve check for another 18k miles and is built to the latest spec. Im OK with the outcome and the fact I contributed means I have a 2 year warranty as well.

Hi Captain Vimes,

I have suffered the same problem with my bike, I have sent you a PM to ask you for any tips/guidance you could provide to assist me please?

This is fairly urgent so if any knows Captain Vimes and could pass him this message I would be most grateful.

Thank you in advance

Stuart
