Do 2006 come with the fly-by-wire electronic throtle system.
Is that the recall?

It could be for the air filter bolts. They can come loose and block the throttle bodies in the open position. this is bad. I think that's what you're talking about. They have a new style filter that keeps the bolts from coming loose.

Sorry it wasn't very descriptive. I will have to call the dealer and check it out.

I guarantee that's what it's for. Hey...screws will come loose when your engine spins at 16,500 RPMs. They just didn't think of that when they engineered the bolt housings for the air filter.

I think it's pointless if you don't match that with a full system. The stock GYT-R filters are a good filter.

Yes i was thinking of that to since it goes on the same air box, or whatever you want to call it. Are there full systems for the 06,07 models thgh? I recall seeing K&N but not for the 2006. And it was just the filter to, is it like cars, that come witht the OEM box, and if you want more HP. You have to go with air intake..>?
I need to take a look under my gas tank.

Nah, it's just the filter element for bikes. And there's a bunch of full systems out for the '06 and '07's. I know Graves makes a good one.
