A little indroduction here: I am 34 years old and live in Fairbanks, Alaska.

I just picked up a new '08 BF 750i. 0 miles on it and took it for a spin around the block. Seeing how it was -4F this morning I figured I would just ride it around the block and put it back the garage.

I drove 1.3 miles and came back....Turned the machine off and tried to turning back on. The machine is stuck in R and will not start because it will not return to N. I can shift the selector lever up and down but no response to the cooresponding gear.:thinking:

Had to push it on the trailer and now back to the dealer in the morning.

Frustrating!:rant:

like posted above use the brakes and also you should also be able to put in any gear by rocking it back and forth while changing the gears

Well, thanks for the info.....But it will not change gears. I'm thinking it is a linkage problem. There is no resistance in the shifter regardless of what gear I tring to put it in.

The dealer opens at 9 am. I'll be there when the door unlocks.

Im betting its a linkage problem also. You'll need to remove the right side plastic to get at it yourself.
But since you just got it, I'd be carting it back off to the dealer too!

I bet, based on his description, the threaded part has come out of the end piece.
(Its looks like and is adjusted just like a tierod, alaskanmoosehunter )

Good News......

I can't complain.....

I dropped the machine off and told them the problem. As I left the service desk I asked, when do they think it would be done? I was told by next Saturday. I did find that unacceptable and decided to talk to the owner of the dealer. He said, "He understood and would see what he could do".

Right about noon, the owner called me and said he would uncrate a new machine, mount a new winch and put my mudlites on it. I asked him what was wrong with the machine, he told me he didn't care and hasn't looked at it yet.

I bought the machine with cash out right and to make it even better he knocked off $500.00.

I thought that was an appropiate anwser.....I mean it only had 1.3 miles on the **** thing!

So far I am happy with their customer service.

Hopefully, the customer service will remain for the next few years of warranty.

I'm going to go pick it up in about an hour. Gotta go hook up the trailer.
