Nope. Your bike has the later model ECU where the work-around was implemented.

Now, I found it very interesting that Yamaha has refused to rerplace the ECU in my Canadian '06, which DOES suffer the problem. According to the rep, there is no recall or service advisory in Canada - and my dealer has been unable to find one either.

I have an '09 model, a few weeks ago I was up in the mountains about 6500-7000ft up and my bike ran terrible. It was hesitating and felt like it was missing or running with only 2-3 cyl firing. As soon as I got back down to about 5000ft it was fine. Anyone had altitude issues with a biker newer than '07?

The ECU issue does not apply to your machine. Only '06s and some early '07s.

Have you got a PC3 or similar on your bike?
