XSR 700 Recall?

I just found this piece from a foreign moto news site so I have no idea how accurate this is. Doesn't hurt to give your dealer a call anyways.

motorevue.com says around 1,387 Yamaha XSR 700 is being recalled because of a weakness in the wiring harness: "the key switch harness can wear out in case of prolonged friction against the Metal cable guide located at the steering column."

Quote:
This includes the XSR 700 series serial numbers ranging from RM111 0000101 to RM111 0007414, XSR 700 serial numbers ranging from RM111 0001662 to RM111 0007114, XSR 700 serial numbers between RM121 0000101 and RM121 0000908 and finally the XSR 700 whose serial numbers are between RM121 0000182 and RM121 0000868.
This is all from google translate.

Week one and there's already two motorcycle recalls. The one you posted about the XSR700 and the KTM Durke recall where the brake pipe could overheat and eventually melt.

FEMA is a good place to keep up to date on recalls if you're in Europe: http://www.fema-online.eu/website/in...ystem-recalls/

Hi all,
just had my recall. Only had the beaut for a week too. I'm told it's something to do with a sub headlight cable and it's propensity for corrosion. Uh.
Bit annoyed as it's 30 miles away and my deadlines are pretty bad at the mo. The joy of being freelance eh.

Still, gotta get it done and they are doing their best to make it easy.

Cheers dudes.

Before you get the work done, read this thread on recall damage. You have been warned!

Recall damage?

I'm going to sort mine at home (when the weather gets a bit warmer!).

John876 seems to have had a good experience though. I'll talk to them about it before they have a go.
I'll let you know how I get on, it's in on Saturday.

Cheers for the heads up dude.

I've looked at mine and it seems totally fine, no jagged edges to rub through the cables or any signs of wear.... so perhaps it's only a few and they're just covering their backs.
I've done over 2k and i'll keep an eye on it, but i certainly won't be taking it in to be butchered

As Chillyhead mentioned, mine went ok and looks the same as it would coming from the factory.

Maybe when you take the bike in, show the dealer the damage thread on this forum just so they know how not to do it!

Hi all, had mine done today and you wouldn't know the difference. Great job. Very tidy with some awesome wrapping of some extra cables too. Told the fellas there about the nasty job we've now all see the pics for, and they're saying that whoever did it couldn't have used the recall pack and just cut wires to reroute . Fingers crossed the poor fella got some joy out of complaining.
