I'm getting ready to take my bike in for the recall work. Are there any mods I should really think about having the dealer do while they have my bike tore down? The dealer told me they will only install factory upgrade parts, like stage 4 parts, etc. So Installing a bigbore kit is out, but how about a clutch spring upgrade kit or ???


Thanks, Glen

Wildthang try the search feature. This topic has been beat to death. Short answer any stage IV stuff you can afford will save you a lot of labor. 2nd road star 5th gear.

Glen, Find another dealer to do the recall and mods that you want and can afford. It is too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Thanks for the replies. Yeah, I called back the Dealership and told the service manager that I was going to look for a performance oriented Yamaha dealer. He would only install Yamaha SS parts and wanted full retail on parts, plus 4 hours labor for high comp pistons and a clutch spring kit. I can understand trying to make some cash on parts, but the 4 hours seems like a scam to me!!! I mean they are already going to be a little ahead, because I have scrapped all kinds of little parts they will get paid to R&R. (AirBox, Smog, Exhaust, etc.)

The other top tip is to really carefully check out that your dealer is capable of doing the work. I had the following criteria for getting my recall work done:

- the technician doing the recall must have performed at least 1 other Warrior recall
- the technician doing the recall must be an experienced, top mechanic (no trainees thankyou)
- the dealer must be willing to do performance extras for sensible money (4 hours for pistons is a crock of S$%^)
- the dealer can answer in depth questions about what the recall work entails
- the dealer don't mind being asked in depth questions about the recall operation

I had to drive quite a way to find a good dealer but in the end having the top technician payed off as I had no problems at all.
