What is considered a safety recall?

I got refused a recall on my Touareg because it expired and it relates to engine problems, costing near $10k to fix..

I'm pretty sure my 02 has had nothing done to it. So I will getting in touch with a dealer prob tomorrow. As I was reading thru here I guess some of you guys bought some parts to upgrade while gettting the recall jobs done...I'm wondering if any of you are still around to let me know whether i should look into getting the extra work done and/or what parts I can or should buy? Any help would be appreciated and thank you.

First verify what recalls have been done. Get the VIN off your frame neck because docs sometimes have errors. Then call the phone number (post #12 above) for Yamaha / Star and ask them to check a VIN. They will tell you what is needed. Then we can take it from there.

Just called Yamaha and spoke to a customer rep. She told me the only thing done to the bike was the Transmission kit. I still need to get the Fuel tank damper kit, pickup coil, and TPS replacement. I guess I won't be doing the other things. Oh well...

Now the next step is to visit this forum's Total Recall forum and read what each recall includes. The dealer will do things like try to make you pay for motor oil when the recall document indicates Yamaha reimburses the dealer for oil (sometimes on the very last part of the very last page so read every boring word). Some recalls do not include oil, some do.

Once you know exactly what each recall covers, then you can contact the dealer for recall work. Just tell them Yamaha said to call any dealer to get the recall work done.

For 2002:
Fuel Tank hardware recall.
Transmisison recall (yours is done)
Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) recall (make them use the newest part# fitting 2002)
Crank Position Sensor (CPS) (Pickup Coil) (make them use the newest part# fitting 2002 and let be sure they do NOT cut the new harness as signal can be interrupted and the recall documents carefully show how to install the entire harness uncut).

Smile 02 W/O Recall work done on it!

Just bought my first Warrior a couple weeks ago! And with reading many, many post on this forum. I had my vin # ran! The recalls you all speak off haven't been done yet! So I have a few questions.

1) My Warrior has 26,000 miles on it without the tranny recall done. It the start of the riding season. And the dealers are busy with putting new bikes together. So getting this work done could take some waiting time. I just bought AMSOil to put in my bike. It's expensive and I don't want them to drain it out only after it's been in there a couple weeks.

Would you wiser forum member change the oil and have the warranty work done at the end of the riding season or have it done before?

2) This upgraded 5th gear you speak of that will give better fuel mileage. What is the estimated cost of those parts?


I have been on many forums and by far this is the most informative one I have every came across. Glad to be apart of it!!!!

more than likely, nothing bad would happen if you waited until the end of the riding season, if it were me I would ride it, but I cannot tell you in good conscience to wait, in case something did happen. so i will say get the recall done. when they pull it apart have them put in all the goodies, roadie 5th, HC pistons etc. dont know the price but if you are looking for good mileage go get a rebel lol
