I called my local dealer here in Chicago and he informed me that he has no information on the recall.
I guess I need to wait till I get the recall letter from Yamaha Corporate.
Probably very wise.
We're in that transition time of no recall, to a recall is imminent, to a recall that's being implemented. Having been through 3 or 4 of these now....GIVE YAMAHA AND DEALERS SOME TIME. Remember this particular forum is very likely ahead of most dealers on the issue because we often know more about the FJR than most in the world. Yamaha has thousands of different things they do a day...one of which is one model they make.....the FJR. And they do it in a variety of different countries.
Dealers have thousands of different things to do each day--one of which is answer questions from FJRForum dwellers wondering if they've heard the latest thing.
Give 'em all some time. You'll be much happier, the dealer will provide better service, Yamaha will spend more resources getting kits out the door than answering phone calls from you, and this forum will be a much better place so we can focus on the next issue.
And vilifying Yamaha or your dealer does nobody any good and gets tired very quickly here. Yes, Yamaha says not to ride it...they have to because it's potentially a safety issue. It's the world we live in.
Do you have to not ride it? No, because you have a brain and can make your own judgement how much safety actually changed as a result of the recall. And, you realize the status of the ground in your bike didn't actually change because of a letter. A little patience folks....
One other question I haven't seen anyone answer: does this affect all 2006-2009 FJRs,
Yes. It's listed in the links in post #7. One includes specific VIN's.
In fact, this is an example of where things like recalls are highly dynamic and we could get our forum act together better and post stuff as we know full details. Going to modify the first post to have more of a one-stop shopping experience.
