  1. Seriously? Recalled again? That is the fifth recall (well, the first four were bundled as two recalls so some might count this as only the third). So far: oil pump assembly, clutch bearings, tank mount, main ignition and now torsion spring in transmission. At least it is not like the old days where your model year was a “bad year” and fixed it yourself or sold the bike at a deeply discounted rate.
