Funny you mention this. I started this thread because my bike has shut off a few times, etc.... But the day I bought my bike, I got on it for the first time ever to ride it home from the dealer. The check engine light came on the first time I fired it up in the dealership parking lot. I rode it home and it stayed lit the whole time. Annoyed that my brand new bike tossed a CEL the first time I rode it, I drove it back to the dealership the next day (the CEL remained on). Turns out it was a bad O2 sensor. So I had to leave my brand new bike there for a few days while they got a new one installed.
Yes Sir, I too would of been very unhappy but also relieved that it was a simple issue to fix and of course covered by warranty too I hope. However, none the less, it is very disappointing that quality control of parts, operation functions and electronics including specific but basic engine specs, checks/tollerances don't seem to be inspected or followed routinely by the manufacturer and/or dealerships. I know there are plenty of other Challenger riders out there that swear by their Challenger and haven't had a dime of trouble, but again there seem to no shortage of owners who hare having a wide verity of different issues... I guess it goes with the old saying... "Watchout for any first year models"
