Re: 0 miles Limited Edition in Sweden
I took a look at the documentation for one of my bikes from 1986 and it had 0.4 miles on it when it was delivered. Somewhere in the back of my mind, it seems like I've seen a video of the GSX-R assembly line, where each bike got started and run on rollers briefly, to make sure it ran and would change gears.
It's hard to say if a US dealer never serviced it when new. I once bought a new 2005 Anniversary edition 750 and didn't want it serviced or started, either. That was quite a fight and I'm not convinced that I won it. Now I'm fighting Suzuki, who wants me to bring it to them to change the front brake master cylinder and I keep refusing, as it is sitting in the home office of one of my kids. I keep telling them that they could just give me a new master cylinder and I'd swap it for them but that doesn't fit their mindset.
We remain at a stalemate.
