It is a bit tricky to get to everything that's involved.$250! What's included in that besides oil? Do they hold 15 qts of oil? Is that a diesel engine? How do they get owners to pay that?
I think your definition of capitalism is off a bit.Since Can-Am dealerships are a lot more scarce than motorcycle shops the tech skill and quality has a much higher value. That's capitalism.
In. Are you saying the tech's have no skills? You think these guys come off the street from sleeping in a box? They sure do have skills, they went to tech school, learned a trade and keep learning everyday. I suppose the people that made the Spyder have no skills either. The people that made your car? The trucks that deliver goods, so you can buy them all came from skilled people. Next time your in a plane think of the skilled people that made the seat your butts in.I think your definition of capitalism is off a bit.
You are assuming that there is any "tech skill and quality" involved......and many people find that there is next to none.
What that really means is more like supply and demand.
THEY have control over the supply so they can pretty much charge whatever they want, no matter what the quality.
THAT is Capitalism.......at it's worst.
Yes, that's exactly what I am saying.In. Are you saying the tech's have no skills? You think these guys come off the street from sleeping in a box?
You just dont like someone talking back to you. Look at the all the responses, you have your two cents in all of them. Got nutthin better to do? Your the rudest forum user I have ever seen. This forum sucks anyway.Yes, that's exactly what I am saying.
Scant few mechanics that work in bike shops actually have any formal "tech school" training.
They go to a 2 week (at most) "factory" training course where they basically learn the right names of parts and how to read codes and look them up. That's it for most.
Your rant about all of those other people and professions has NOTHING to do with Spyder service at their dealers.
AND......if you want to remain in this forum, you need to cool off a bit.
Your abusive attitude is not appreciated and will NOT be tolerated.
My dealer asked if I wanted to wait until the back ordered from brp emissions filter arrived. They've had the bike for a week to do the 27,000 mile service. didn't stock the spark plugsIn general:
BRP "treats" it's dealers good.
But the dealers treat their customers like CRAP.
The going rate for a simple oil change seems to be a MINIMUM of $250. Some places much higher.
Before COVID, getting parts wan't bad.
But now getting parts for a LOT of things is really slow; BRP included.
