After only 8,000 miles on my trike kit for my 2012 SilverWing, I have to replace my chain, front and rear sprokets, and Motor Trike will not honor their warranty, saying, it is wear parts ! REALLY? Only after 8,000 miles ? When the warranty is SUPPOSEDLY for 50,000 miles!  Future buyers beware

Chains and sprockets, tires, belts and filters aren't covered by 99% of manufacturers. They are wear items dependent on maintenance and conditions. Cars and trucks too. Was there a defect or just wear?

After consulting with MT tech., it turns out this will reoccur every 8,000 miles. As soon as I get her home, she will go up for sale.ourshepherdschapel@yahoo.com

That's not good, most bikes get 15 or 20k at least before needing replacement.
