We, of course, do not allow copyrighted material to be posted on the public domain.

So, we can not (and will not) post Bulletin M2007-016.

HOWEVER......

I happen to, um, know someone who read it.

And this individual happened to, um, drop me a casual email - yeah, that's it - with some of the highlights within this Altitude Surge Fix notice.

Which I was able to paraphrase for y'all. However, it's still problematic to post them here.

Still... if it was further obfuscated by turning the excerpts into Flashpaper, then those pesky Google-bots and other web-crawlers wouldn't be able to search for key phrases.

Therefore.... you can read these excerpts right here. Substitute the word "Yamaha" when your see the word "Manufacturer"..... Posted Image

Well just contacted my dealer about the bulletin. Gave them my vin and guess what my bike is not included acourding to him. Well he said he is going to have the sevice manager call yamaha and ask them whats up. Hopefully I hear something good tomorow. Reading the bulletin if I am reading it right it states that mine is included in the FJR1300AVC/AWC RP15Y 0000001-0000744 group. My vin is this: jyarp15y26a000152. It is a 2006 fjr13avcl. Please tell me if I am right or wrong. Damn I hope I'm right.

It appears to me you are included.

Looking at the Flashpaper document, here is only one line of RP15Y numbers.... and the range is 0000001 through 0000744 on that line.

So your ending VIN of 000152 would seem to be included....

Thank you very much for the confirmation. I will stop by the dealer on my way to work tomorow so I can show them what I have. I think maybe he looked at my vin wrong or something. Hopefully I get a phone call from my dealer with some good news before I have to go down there. Thanks again.

Warchild,
Thanks very much for the info. This is what it took to finally get some action out of my dealer, after an entire summer of blowing me off. After calling him myself regarding the TSB, service manager called Yamaha, got the scoop, and ordered the new ECU. Maybe it was my imagination but he seemed a little contrite when he called me back afterwards. After all he'd been the one to tell me I'd have to pay them $75/hr to ride my own bike to see if they could duplicate the problem.

Thanks also to Truwrecks and everyone else who participated in getting this taken care of.

WC,

If this is a technical bullitin relating to a safety issue, Why can't it be posted?

The one for the instant MPG Fix was posted and I downloaded it.

Don't be playing this game that somehow supposed safety trumps copyright law or something. You wanna get permission from Yamaha to post it....feel free. Otherwise, the forum members are sufficiently knowledgable to contact a dealer if they have an ECU issue and be thankful WC is going out on the limb he is.

Where is a copyrighted MPG Fix bulletin posted? It might be before we affirmed a copyright policy on this forum and didn't catch it.

I'm just glad we have members like Warchild and others who go out on a limb to have Yamaha make good when things are wrong. My hat is off to all of you.

Thanks to you all! My bike appears to be among those affected (RP15Y96A000066). I regularly commute over a 4000' pass (from 250' msl), but have been making do with the Barbarian jumper mod first and a PC-III after it became available.

I'll see if Yamaha mails me the letter (until the end of the month). If not, I'll present the M2007-016 copy to my dealer.

Thanks again!

co425, my ending vin is 000135, seems I was 17 bikes ahead on the assyembly line and mine seems to be included as well. I too somewhat confused as aftere the RP15Y there is "26A" then the zero's going into the number. Not sure where the "26A" comes into play but all else seems right. Still waiting to hear back from my service manager as he supposedly called Yamaha on Monday. Seems I now have my ammo. Yes. Thanks again to all concerned. yahoo.gif PM. <><

My dealer told me that he always checks the yamaha service site and they always show new bulletins on the front page - but this was not showing, but since he had the number from my email to him, he looked further, and there it was, down in the section with all the prior bulletins. Apparently Yamaha does not want to "alert" the dealers, but rather, let them that need it, "find it".
