New poster here….
I took my MSF course last august and picked up a new FX-3 towards the end of last August.
I love it more and more every day.
Johnny Pag does is own design work in California, and relocates to China for 6 months to oversee his production runs, then he and the parts come back to his warehouse in California.
I know where you guys are coming from, I really felt like I was taking a big risk going with an unknown brand and it’s always hard to figure out how to measure the quality and service of an unknown product… How do you measure service if it doesn’t break… If it does break, is it any good? Here’s my story, and you can form your own opinion to that question…
Within 200 miles of ownership, I did have a small oil leak around the head gasket… just moist to the touch and never dripped. The head gasket was replace under warranty within a week. The leak was still there. The dealer talked to Johnny and agreed to an upper rebuild. Between determining the approach, getting the parts and doing the repair, took about a week and half. I’m very happy with how it was handled and have not had any other problems with the bike.
