Rear fascia paint cracked on the new bike.

Has less than 500 miles on it and this happened. Took it to Harley Sunday and was told they will contact the mother ship. No word yet. I'm not very happy about this. I know I didn't hit anything or dropped anything on it. Suxs.

This won't make you feel any better, but my Hot Rod Red Flake was cracked where the rear tail lamp / turn assembly mounts to the fender. Found it at less than 100 miles when replacing the license plate holder. Apparently during assembly someone on the assembly line over-torqued the nuts, or the paint still wasn't fully cured when they mounted the assembly. Dealer contacted the MoCo and fender replacement was denied. Moco instructed the dealer to "dob" some touch up clear coat over the cracks and send me home.

Boy that really suxs. I would of raised cain over that BS. Did the dealer make it right or tell you to pound sand? Sorry for you misfortune. It kinda takes the joy out of the purchase. I guess I'll find out friday. They called and said that the mother ship wants the service manager to look at it.
I just got the bike in the middle part of May.
Happy Holiday everyone.

Good news. Went to the dealer today and the service manager looked at it. He said Harley won't cover it but the dealer is making it good. They ordered a new one factory painted for it. They said the lead time is 30 days or so. Supposed to give me a call.

Kudos to your dealer. You might throw them a bone and mention the specific dealer's name, so others in your area can patronize them too
