Leave it up to Coleman! A buddy of mine took his bike in for new tires to the one in WoodB and they tightend his lugs so tight it screwwed up his berrings? Don't as me how but they did it. He took it back and they denied that they screwed his bike up. He spoke to the district manager and they finnaly came around to fixing it. He has not been back since. Is it recommended to go to a non-commercial bike shop? I know when I have something wrong with my car I take it to the dealer not any garage.

I'm new to the area (from San Jose, CA), and this must be the 5th or 6th thread on bashing Coleman's.

Oh, forgot: Hi!

I usually go to dealers when getting bike and car work done, but all dealers are not created equal. Does anyone know of reliable Honda (girlfriend's F4i) and Suzuki (my Hayabusa) dealers in the area? I'm assuming Coleman's is not a dealer.

p.s. We're in Centreville, but I'll go a long way to get to a good dealer.

Take the Honda to Shane out at MFI (you can actually meet him on Saturday if you come to their open house). Shane and the guys at the shop at MFI are the ONLY ones I've ever trusted to do work on my bike. He is very professional. MFI is located on Prince William Parkway. I know some of the folks from out your way probably will be going to the Open House on Saturday, so you might want to set up a meet spot and come out wth them. 20% off all accessories, I think half off oil changes....good stuff

There is no way that the ignition is supposed to do that. How many 2002 F4I owners are there on this site? Do any of your bikes have this "anti-theft feature"?

The bike didn't have this feature when I bought it. :dunno:

Mine is a 2001, and it sure doesnt do that. I have a couple friends that own or have owned 02's and theirs didnt do that either.

Okay everyone, repeat after me,"kill the messenger."

Woody: not your fault, but we have to kill the bearer of bad news anyway. Don't take it personally. :flames01:

My girlfriend's (Abby/...aRushOfRed) 2002 F4i does not have a turning security barrel either.

However, my '00 Hayabusa does. All it really do is piss me off when the key won't go in.

:dunno: I've never noticed mine do that. I'll be sure to check it when I get home. You'll have my report on your desk tomorrow.

...aRushOfRed's is an '02 CALIFORNIA model and her's does not turn. The exhaust systems and ignition maps are different. Perhaps the ignition switch too?!?!

Hmmm....I don't recall it spinning, but then again I am not sure that I have blatantly tried. :dunno: Dang, now I am curious too. I will have to look at mine when I get home.

Well lizzerd, if yours is broken then so is mine. I just went out and checked and mine does the same thing and its a 2K2. However, its doesn't spin very easily and I have not noticed this before. I had to actually try to make it do so..but it does it.

PS - never listen to Lee

as long as the bike works, why raise such a big fuss over it? how could you expect coleman to know it was normal, they arent even a honda dealer.

They ARE supposed to spin like this - just some are tighter than others and can't easily be turned by hand. They will all turn if you insert a lock pick and apply some load to feel out the tumblers - found out the hard way trying to help a young lady who had lost her key and just wanted to get home where she had the spare!

We are not a Honda dealer but can look after your F4i for everything except warranty work if you like. Otherwise I recommend Manasas Honda as an easier trip from Chantilly.
