...however since Yamaha came out with their recall switch this has become a "non issue" for 2nd Gen. owners.
Well, it has been quite a while now since Yamaha deployed their ignition switch recall. I, for one, was very skeptical that their fix was going to be adequate for all bikes, especially those where the owner had added any accessories that are run off of switched power. Having the key switched contacts operate a relay for handling the higher load of the entire bike (almost), as the "Brodie Relay" does, appeared to me like it was still a great idea.
But it does seem that the data (lack of any post recall failures) speaks for itself. If anyone has had an ignition switch meltdown (not just crusty contacts failure) on an "updated" Yamaha switch installed, please be sure to let the forum know about it.
