Sounds like a plan. Let's see how long it takes them to roll this out in the USA.

It will be interesting to see if they do all of them. There's been some, what I would call premature, talk about only certain build dates getting the update.
I find it very hard to believe only a few months worth of bikes are effected.

Looking forward to getting official details when it finally hits the US.

Hi
If I were to buy a 2016 Yamaha R3 today, would it still be recalled?
If it is from a dealer, yes. Or, at least, it should be!

If it is from a private party, possibly. If I were buying from a private party I would get the VIN and contact a Yamaha dealer to verify the work had been done. If it hasn't been done Yamaha will do it for free for you after you buy the bike. Or just tell the owner to get it done before you are willing to buy it.

Hello, I am new here, been on this site, but used gingerly, since it has taken more than four months for the idiots at the dealer/LTO to give me papers to allow me to ride my bike legally. System sucks here. Those who buy new bikes, can't legally ride them, anywhere from 3-6 months because of the slow processing of registrations at their version of a DMV.

Anyway, there are apparently several current recalls on the Yamaha R3 2016 model. I do NOT trust my dealership, they have proven time and again, not to have a clue what they are doing. I have called to confirm whether or not my model (Movistar R3) with the ending VIN of 2510, is included in the TWO recalls. The first is a fuel tank bracket that can fail and needs to be replaced. The second, and more important one, is the ignition switch can apparently fail from water/rain, causing the power to turn off while riding, potentially causing an accident.

The information is so unclear as to whether my bike is effected, and the dealer is absolutely unreliable and can not be trusted. How do I confirm whether or not my bike is effected by either of these recalls?

Also, what about earlier recalls for the oil pump, and the recalls I see here about the clutch?

Buying a bike in the Philippines is a nightmare, if you are a foreigner living here, be aware, the rules/laws and the process is absolutely stupid, inconsistent and ridiculously long.
