Look at your coolant level when you get the bike back. Almost everyone reports being a little low in the reservoir after the recall service is performed

You mean that there is a radiator in this thing? ****! My understanding is that the recall deals primarily with the clutch and oil pump, how does the coolant come into play? (Especially since mine was done on a rack and upright)

The reservoir has an overflow. Just a guess but I'd think that if they are leaning the bikes to one side, maybe some of the fluid comes out of that over-flow.
I don't know the cause but I do know a lot of guys, me included, had to top off our coolant reservoirs.
If done on a rack, you may not see a drop in coolant but very well may receive new fluids.

On a side note, I just can't seem to sleep reservoir very well. Very thankful for spell check

The water pump has to be removed and the coolant runs through the clutch cover to the pump. Hence, the coolant NEEDS to be drained.

If the tech does it on the side stand the oil does not need to be removed.

So you are saying that the water pump has to be removed to get to the oil pump?

What did you do about the oil part that was also in the recall? I didn't see anything about that in your repair link.

I didn't do it because it wasn't a known issue when I did that fix. I have since had the recall done.
