Yamaha Canada Confirms Recall

I got the email from them today:

Good morning Chris

We just received confirmation from factory today that the recall for the R3 clutch bearing an oil pump will be issued shortly to all dealership Canada-wide and a letter to Canadian customers with a affected unit. You should receive something in the mail shortly.

Best regards,
Remi

Thanks for that Remi.

I've spent most of my money on women, motorcycles, and beer.
The rest of it I just wasted.

Sounds like they will be sending out letters out soon. From what I can tell I think they have to drain cooling sys too.

The question remains... How many units will be affected.
I won't be comfortable until they update all of our bikes.... not just a select few like they did in Japan

Too bad Canada Post is very likely going on strike so it could be quite some time before anyone actually sees a letter. Unless Yamaha Canada coughs up the dough for courier services or relies solely on notifying via email.

Hi I am new to the forum as of last week as I just bought a bike last wee.
I called the dealer today Motorsports world in Ottawa and they confirmed the recall on the oil pump was just received yesterday
They have ordered the kits today for the oil pump repairs
Oddly they don't have anything on the clutch or brake hose yet... very odd.
