Not sure if this has been posted or not so forgive me in advance if it has. Does your dealer install parts not bought from that dealership? About 12 years ago I had my scoot in for sadlebag/brackets install and a few other things done. They did everything but they only had one sadlebag bracket. So I called around to a few other local dealers and tracked a bracket down. I asked the dealer who had my bike if I bought the bracket somewhere else would you install it. "Well we really don't like to do that but..." So they did and everyone was happy. So yesterday I took my bike out for some maintance and an install on a Harly part that I bought somewhere else. The shop manager said "yep. Sure we can do that". Now keep in mind that about 12 years ago Harley was going strong. They could afford to pick and choose what they wanted to do even if it wasn't good business parctice. But I think now days they are begging to get business. So has anyone else had a problem about buying a part from someplace else and getting another dealer to put it on?
