Typed my VIN and did a search, page came up blank. Anyone else come up differently? Maybe the webmaster is updating the info...
Exactly. Given today's technology and prototyping capabilities, issues like these are far and fewer between, however they happen. I applaud Yamaha for being proactive and "open." Conversely, look at other problems and issues with various other products and companies -Takata airbags for example. I forgot if it was Chevy with their ignition or something and Jeep with their Park issue. Remember, the R3 is a brand new model, and while based on the DNA of the "R" series, it takes no parts that I know of from the R6, FZ6R, etc My brother always told me never to buy the first year of anything until the gremlins are knocked out-heh, both my bike and car are their respective model's maiden years.These things don't bother me too much. They find a problem and fix it proactively... I'm okay with that.
We've seen a few threads pop up lately with a few guys having problems with the bike shutting off. This looks like it'll correct that problem. I'm all through this forum and compared to other models, the R3 still remains a pretty rock solid bike. Not a lot to complain about and when we do find something, Yamaha is all over it.
Mine is not getting fixed anytime soon. It'll be a few months before the weather improves enough so I can get the bike out to the shop or repair.
On a side note... what's the over/under on how many recall threads we'll see created over the next few months
Not sure how it works there, but it's hardly an hour job.Hi guys,
Just to add to this, I had a recall letter (From Yamaha Europe) about the recall on my 2016 MT03.
What do you think the chances of me getting a courtesy bike while they do it? I'm not walking home!
Surprised/disappointed more about the leaky switch!
