Seems to me, failure to check and top off coolant res. is a pretty common problem with our Ducs. Back in Feb. an owner posted a situation with his new 999 indicating hot on his ride home from the dealer - checked coolant and found it low or near empty. Then DL has a similar problem with her new 749. At the 600 mile service on my 05 ST4s it took 1/2 gal. of coolant, fortunately it had not been running hot. Do most dealers demonstrate such poor management by not keeping on top of their new bike prepping. You cannot blame this on the hired help, it is the dealer's responsibility to get decent help and manage their business. If a dealer winds up with a law suit over such things so-be-it. He probably shouldn't be in business - he should be digging ditches. This kind of service sucks. After months or years of studying, looking and dreaming of owning and riding a particular machine he or she lays down a bunch of money for a great product thereby bringing their expectations to fruition. Then some numb-nuts dealer takes their money, delivers a half prepped machine and says here your are - good by and good luck - I hope I don't see you again until you have more money to spend. I think there are a lot of good dealers out there - just not enough of them.
