Exclamation gasgas a piece of crap

     

Well we have rode the 450 gasgas three times since we have gotten it and let me just say this it spends more time in the shop then it does on the dirt. the frist ride we went on came back and putt them in the trailer and i went in the tralier the next day thought there was gas on the floor turns out it was oil the whole bottom plate was covered in oil. went to the shop they said they fixed it went and rode out at the dunes an hour an half drive and rode for 30min and came back was talking and i looked over at the gasgas and what was that more oil but on the other side i was like no way well took it back and they said they fixed it and they made a new gasket for it. sure to slove the problem. went out on sunday to ride went and rode came back david looked at the bike and what was that oil agian not happy i have now taking it back to the shop and they ok we put to much oil in it sorry and we will go ahead and change the oil in as well this time. what this time you mean to tell me you havent change the oil yet they said no you have to have 5 hours on it and you only have like maybe 3 of actuall ride time wth i cant believe this and so now the gas gas sits at the shop and i hope to have it for the weekend that we go to utah well a little upset about this whole deal i need to call and see the progress on this piece of crap.l

Well around our neck of the woods, the GASGAS has the same high standards as KTM. In fact, their KTM's closest competitors.

Question Re: gasgas a piece of crap

We are talking about the ATV correct??

Anymore probs, and I think I would look into some lemon laws!

could it be that the shop does nothing at all???

don't think that your shop is a magical bike fixer. no shop is. you'd do better checking out whats wrong with it by yourself at home.

I agree Blitz, but with a new ATV they shouldn't HAVE to do anything out of the norm......

A new bike should not have the problems described here.

Every manufacturer is going to have some "lemons" come off the line--no matter how reputable and proven the line. If I was having problems from the get-go, I would follow some of the advice in this thread and bring it to the attention of the dealer or district rep. I have heard very good stories, similiar in circumstances, where KTM has stood by their product.
