Rejecting a new bike..

Where do you stand legally if you reject a brand new motorcycle after riding it for a while.For example, my understanding is that under the sale of goods act, the goods must be fit for purpose and if they are not you are within your rights to return them.In this case, I have had a brand new motorcycle with an intermittent cut out. Clearly I must ride it to see if the fault is fixed, and I had some usage out of it before refusing, BUT, in my mind the goods were faulty from the start. As such, can the manufacturer ...

KTM corrosion warranty issues

I need some advice on my best approach. I bought a new KTM last September. I rode it until end November (3800 miles) then garaged up until March. When I took it out in March I washed it after a week and lots of paint came off the exhaust, it was badly rusted. I complained to the dealer and they agreed it would be covered under warranty. I noticed some other rust over the next few weeks on the rear spring and luggage racks. The dealer has just told me that KTM ...

Turkey to UK

I have a Ducati which is registered in Dubai, my insurer here RSA does not offer cover outside the GCC. I am planning to fly my bike to Turkey and then travel across Greece, Italy, Switzerland, France & the UK. If I buy insurance at the Turkish border will it cover me all the way back to Scotland? I have tried to insure the vehicle via the UK but the insurers are telling me they cannot as the bike is registered in the UAE. Does anyone know the best way to go about this?

Suzuki SV650 47bhp legal exhaust

Hello motorcycling world,I am new to all of this, so please be kind. Today I bought myself a 2008 Suzuki SV650 Sport which I will need to restrict to 47bhp to meet the new A2 licencing laws. I was thinking about buying myself an aftermarket slip on exhaust, simply to unleash the V-Twin sound.My concern is that fitting an aftermarket exhaust will bring the BHP above the legal 47bhp, therefore making it illegal to ride and making my insurance void. Can anybody give me anymore information about this please, like am I perhaps looking into this too deeply? Is there ...

Please help..Claim problems.

Hi, I hope some one can help. My son was knocked off his motorcycle last year by a car pulling out to the right from a stationary line of cars waiting at a set of pedestrian crossing lights. He was not riding dangerously, he was not breaking any laws and his insurers/solicitors, after making him wait almost a year, have now said he is 70% responsible and if he does not accept their decision, they will no longer represent him. This is despite ...

mobil speed camera cert

Got notice of prosecution for 36mph which is the minimum they can do you for. Would it be worth asking them for the certs and calibration cert for the camera or would it make matters worse
