I just went to the Yamaha dealer to see about a trade-in for a new Roadstar Silverado Midnight. Best they could do is a $6K trade difference. Too much for me and the Midnight was the only bike I would consider trading-in on. Talked to a lawyer buddy of mine who said to me that Yamaha would be responsible for any damages caused by the recall, but not for other(can't recall the term)damages such as rental charges. And it would be up to the lawyers to determine what a "resonable" amount of time is. Sounds like the argument ala Clinton on what the meaning of "is" is.
I'm riding, if anybody saw the pieces of crap I rode over the past 32 years, they'd know why I can't let this one just sit there doing nothing. I'll bet most of the crap I rode on in the first several years of riding were more unsafe at any speed than the warrior is even if the tranny were to lock up
I was told by my service manager where i take my bike that it's safe to ride. He basically said that lawyers got to the roadstars and then it spilled over into the warriors.... he explained that yamaha hasn't had a warrior fail yet. doesn't carknee or dark have like 15 thousand on theirs? Somebody does..... but either way IM riding.
