Hmm, that's weird. some of you may remember when my vapor tube broke on my 2000 SV. I had to get the tube welded back on. Mine wasn't a cali model either.

That's what I was thinking when I saw this. Yours was older than the recall list wasn't it?

yeah! Mine was a 2000, and the recall is for 2003-2006 but only in the Cali model which mine wasn't.
