    Great quick response from Alf England in Bedworth as I called them on Monday, parts ordered, theycalled me today as parts are now in and I am booked in for tomorrow to have recall work completed. Great service from dealers.

Personally I am not concerned I hav enough engineering skills about me to deal with this myself.
    So that'll be a Gallic shrug, then! Love the French pragmatism.

    lol no it was me really who suggested I leave it. I was actually in about getting a new certificate of conformity as my bike is actually on Spanish plates. I have been pushing my luck now for a year since I left Spain. What prompted me to get the bike on French plates was this!!! The guy that bought my house in Spain sent me a text saying he had received a letter from Traffico ( Spanish traffic police /authority) usually it means I have been, done, for some traffic violation in Spain. Seeing as I was down in Spain on the bike having a blast I thought feck been pinged. Anyway no it was not that. It was Yamaha doing a search for me as they could not contact me about the recall. My bike was not new to me so!!! Well done Yamaha for going the extra mile to locate second hand owners of the MT09. I wonder how many other makers would go to so much trouble to find you. Let's face it a Yamaha dealer will still bill Yamaha EU for there time to do this check.

    Got the letter too, spoke to dealer and hope to fix it at 40K km "big" service..
    I've done hundrends of wheelies so no prob...
    The prob it may could happens after extremely tightening of the bolt IMO, so don't worry to have o loose bolt than an overtightened..

    As with all dealer work. Check the work your dealer does on this recall. When I got mine back two of the four bolts had barely been done up..!

    I entered my VIN and it said it is not in the affected range for modification.

    I would hope not, considering I have had it less than a month.

    Mines a '17 model tracer 900. I asked the dealers about this when I picked it up new in May, and was told that it was not affected. Just put the VIN onto the Yamaha checker and it says that it IS in the range. Back on to the dealers this morning when they open !

    I rang Yamaha in Au and quoted my VIN #. It needed the gearbox and bars done.
