Funny, I don't recall seeing these recalls...

Then again, I think I saw the GSXR one on another site. Apparently, the frame doesn't suffer clumsy wheelie landings very well.

Why fix them? don't ride like a **** and you won't crack the frame. Fairly easy way of seperating the the squids from the riders

I remember when somebody reported that his frame had broken and sent pictures of the damage, only to have the article pulled by a shaky moderator whose name I will not mention, but you know who you are, because of fear of loosing manufacturers ad & $

Took Yamaha long enough! I had to fight to get my ignition fixed after breaking down 800 miles from home in July of '07. Took the dealer 3 weeks to fix it!
Nothing like losing prime riding time because they don't want to acknowledge a problem.
