No, I plan to sell it this month and try something else. If the new engine performed like it used Toni would keep it.

Just an update, Yamaha rebuilt the engine, costed them 8,500$ and took them 5 months.

They should have just given you a whole new bike.  Sounds like it would have been cheaper for them.

That's some saga. Can't believe you had an extended warranty and didn't know it.

What kinda bike are looking at?

I was lucky that I had that extended warranty, I was happily surprised when I found out I had it.
One thing I never mentioned in an earlier post was it took a little extra time for them to finish
my bike because there was a break in at the shop. The thieves stole my bar risers, one of my
grips and then stole an electric scooter lol. Worked out find for me because Yamaha replaced
my stuff with better versions.

If I get a new bike It will probably be a Yamaha FZ-07. I am leaning towards building
my own supermoto or finishing up a cafe racer (virago 750) project I have in the works.

YZetc. -- I sold that WR250F you talked me into buying. It was an awesome machine which I regret selling.

Just bought a brand new 2016 YZ250FX though. Pick it up tomorrow. That should end the mourning period.

That looks like a fun bike.
Let us know what you think once you have some time on it.
