Ride Now Help!!!!

hey my buddy blew something in his motor maybe a rod or valve, this weekend has a loud knock on one of the strokes, and wont run. he has the extended warranty thru ride now, and they are already setting him up to pay outta pocket, they pulled the dipstick and it was half low. told him it was 2 qts low? it only holds 2. he was checking his oil by screwing in the dipstick i guess, but he has all the services and oil changes performed by ride now. we were puttn 30 mph with kids and family on a dirt rode when it let loose. anybody got some help or ammo to take to these fuck sticks, that are trying to screw him outta his warranty...

If is it not an actual Ride now warranty take it to a shop that gives a shit about customer service and not just customer pay! What company is the warranty through?

Thanks for lookin out Chris, anyone that can give me any info would really help.

I just cant believe when you screw the dipstick in and it shows 1/2 way up that it is critically low. I understand (and am kicking myself in the ass for not reading the manual) that I was checking the oil wrong but with an additional 1/2 of threads on the dipstick I just cant believe that was low enough to grenade the motor! If anyone is changing there oil and can check out how much low a 660 is when dipstick shows oil 1/2 way up the dipstick when screwed in I would appreciate it. I can't see that it was more than a quarter quart low.

Thanks again,

Reese

That amount on the dipstick didn't cause your issue. Those guys are full of it.

Sorry my friend, Ride Now has their own private warranty that is only good at Ride Now dealers. Maybe check with a different Ride Now dealer?

Sorry to hear about that.

If that's the case than I'm sorry but I think your screwed. Read the entire warranty and see if it says you must use a ride now store, if so at least cancel the warranty and get whatever refund you may have coming.

I hate hearing about ride now The mother fuckers

Ding Ding..we have a winner. Chris tell your friend(Reese?) to do exactly that and take it to the ride now on Craig road(LVMotorsports) and see what they say or the W. Sahara store....if all else fails you know where to send the ninja for the only cheap RELIABLE service...
