Doesn't sound like to big of a deal to me.
Polaris recalled my jet ski 3 years old to fix a hood hinge. btw broke on its second outing while submarineing a wave at 50mph, causing it and me to cartwheel end over end!

Well this Yam recall must have to do with some guy really pissed at his woman and decided to help out a bunch of other guys with their same problem...

"sorry honey, it's not my fault you fell off!"

u see the endevor recall.... take it to the dealer to tighten a nut...lol i bet they got sued for new parked cars rolling into others.... plus it says it can only happen when the tranny isnt in park.. guess it would only effect sticks since u cant take the key out of a auto in neutral....

how do u forget to tighten 65K nuts? the "Ebrake nut tightner engineer" at mits fall alseep for a few hours?

Very easy to do. You get a new operator on the line. Doesn't know his job. Shortly after the e-barke goes in, the dash sits on top of it, nut could be forgotten completely and nobody is the wiser. Or gun falls out of calibration, doesn't meet torque spec. The recall probably only affects a small portion of those cars, but since they have to find a clean point as to when the problem started till when it ended, therfore if there is no tel tale sign exactly when it started, they may have overestiamted to make sure tehy catch all possible vehicles. Ya got to love the auto industry.

No.. They just wouldn't own up to it. Suzuki feels that their best R&D riders are the general public. That's why the TL1000R was such a *great* bike that *never* broke or *ever* had *any* suspension problems that might cause tank slappers that would pitch me over my handlebars and break the tip of my elbow off...

Do I sense a little sarcasm with a bit of embedded hostility?
