I don't know if you can do it yourself, but any Yammy dealer will do it for you. Too bad your new bike is so old and worn out, though. So it's on what, its second tank of gas?

Probably first tank. Hope it had gas stabilizer and oil changed from sitting around...

Congrats on your new bike!

Congrarts, on the new bike. Count me in a meet and greet too, it would be a good excuse for me to get out.
As far as checking out the recalls, call Libby's in New Haven they'll help you out.

Welcome to the club!! Congrats on the incredible find!! Thought about getting the same color a little over a year ago, until my wife said why don't you just get a new one. I learned several years ago to pick my battles and that's one reason why I'm on year 12 (or is it 13) of my honeymoon. My 2012 is sitting in the dealer's garage waiting for me to ride it home.

Becareful of this site, it gets expensive. I have four things being shipped to me as I write this and have to come up four reasons fast when the boxes arrive.
This is one sweet ride!!
