  1. Recall letter says its a 14 hrs job, thats a major engine repair i belive .
    Engine says Made in Japan , I’m not sure how reliable its going to be after put together some dealership and if I ever going to have my confidence on the bike, especialy when there’s the engine involved.
    A bike with 2000 km in it, now going to have a semi rebuild engine. So far non of the other brands had a recall like this.
    Not sure what to do get it fixed or sell it after

    • Rechecked my VIN – and yes my bike now shows as being included in the M071 (Transmission modification) and M073 (Brake switch replacement) recalls.
