    Yeah, they still got crappy CCTs, and the ECU will end up flashed by Vcyclenut anyway, because it is just that much better than stock... BUT, this is a crummy recall... Id never trust my dealer with my bike, and major surgery like this. Id buy the part, and get to work.

    For those in the SF Bay Area, the Yamaha dealer in Petaluma has an older, ace mechanic who's the only one I'd be comfortable with opening my bike. My Warrior had to have a transmission gear replaced on recall which necessitated splitting the cases. Since the engine was apart I bought HC pistons, a taller Roadstar fifth gear and had the top end completely thermal barrier and friction coated. The mechanic put it together on Yamaha's dime and I've never had a problem with the motor, including no pinging with the HC pistons. I have no connection with that dealer and don't even use him because he's far away and his dealer charges $115/hr. Luckily I dodged this recall.

    If the part is improperly made and has an edge, which we do not know what or where, just smoothing out the part (Do you have a good part to compare to?), will not fix an internal fault and the part may still fail. You might have the part magna-fluxed or dye penetrate tested, Then you will have a hundred bucks or so in a part the factory will replace for free.
    If the recall is true, which I think it is, we will have to wait and see what Yamaha does. My bike is in the recall zone, it is not a big deal. They will fix it and I will be satisfied or I will start writing letters.

    Also if the recall is a "don't ride" type BMW and Razor had, I'm thinking loaner bike. Sure I'll take that R1 for a few weeks.

    If you look at the recalls the big buck bikes have gone through this is minor. The transmission is cassette it think and the cases should not have to be split, I hope, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Ride Safe.

    I took my R6 there when I was stationed in Petaluma since I couldn't do any vehicle work at my apartment complex. That dealer has a great service department, and I HATE letting other people service my bikes. Normally i do it all myself except tires, which I just take the wheel in. So for me it's saying a lot that I would allow them to work on my bike. That being said, it's a Recall so any issues afterward would be on yamaha if the dealer fd up.
