This recall instructs you not to ride until the recall is completed. Yamaha states it will be April before all recall kits are at the dealers. Dealer states they now have over 50 bikes to do and the list is growing. The recall pays 9 hours and some dealer mechanics are saying it really takes about 13 hours as it requires a complete teardown. It will be months after they get the recall kits before they can get to many bikes. Recall was ordered in August 2003 and it could be as late as July/August 2004 until the recall on many bikes can be completed. That's up to a year the bike is out-of-service. Bike owners are making loan payments, insurance payments, loss of use, loss of value, etc. You also cannot sell the bike until the recall is completed. Yamaha should be held responsible. Lets start talking about a class action lawsuit. Anyone hear of any starting up or know any attorneys?

Good grief, let's whine and cry. Write to Yamaha FIRST and vent your frustration. They sure did not mean for this to happen IMHO. I am going to enjoy the heck out of my Warrior til the day it goes in for the knife. In the meantime I am beginning to get a good education on this site about mods that can be done while the engine is apart. April, GREAT, more time for learning about mods and decision making, getting the funds arranged. As for the lawyers, my bro-in-law is one, he specializes in product liability. I am going to question him about the fine points of legal liability for those owners who choose not to get their tranny's fixed; and at some later point have the problem that induced the recall injuring somebody else. I am not the slightest interested in any legal action, a simple extended warranty would suit me fine.
