Well it would happen during hunting season. The issue im having with my bike is related to the post I made a few weeks ago about losing my coolant level in the little reservoir that you add it to with the Low and High marks. I have 450 miles on my wolverine and since ive had it ive added 2.5 quarts to the machine roughly. I hated to take it up there as it is in the middle of deer season but I had to since my warranty runs out at 12-05-15. It drinks coolant. I cant find a leak. But when I pull the oil dip stick there is a off white thick almost like hand lotion on the end of the dip stick. I told the service manager at my Yamaha dealer and he said bring it on in cause it may be serious. May not be. But better safe than sorry I guess. And the bike has Never been in deep water. Its just not what I do with it. I use it to deer hunt and am kinda anal about taking care of it, no mudding, wash it regularly, maintenance, etc. etc. I'm fairly easy on the machine I believe. I explained all that to the guy at Yamaha. He said be patient that he is going to file a claim with the warranty or something. He said it may be a couple weeks as they are slow at Yamaha, the people above him I guess. I told the guy id done been in there buying coolant before and asking them about this granted id never spoken with him before but the other guys in there I dealt with kinda minimized the concern that I had with the coolant level disappearing. The service manager that I spoke with today seemed personable, knowledgeable, and ready to help me with this unfortunate and uncommon problem and I am thankful for that after hearing of the other fellow with the engine problem that is having a tough time getting cooperation from his dealer support. He speculated a bit about it maybe being a bad head gasket. He added that this is uncommon (which I believe to be true) for this to happen with a Yamaha. But at the end of the day mechanical stuff can break and parts are not perfect and I understand that and deal with that in the oil field ive seen the toughest and baddest equipment break and tear up burn down blow up not everyday but it happens. So now im just hoping that they fix this and don't play no games cause I got $13.5k tied up in this buggy that aint doing me a bit of good up there at the shop. okay done venting.
