i have a 2009 Street Triple R. it has the old rr on it, do you think there is any way (now that they are replacing them for free) that i could get a dealer to mail me a replacement for free?
Not really.... I was there when they replaced the three items. The rear shock was not unbolted and the gas tank was lifted a bit at the front to get to the connectors (I held it up, still pivoted at the back). The rest was a bit fiddly that's all...Lol it takes a lot longer than 15 minutes! The rear shock is in the way and the top mount has to be unbolted. The gas tank has to be raised up and connectors removed.
It's a half hour job - a bit longer if you ride in and they have to wait for the exhaust to cool.The reason I ask is although the dealer is a half hour away its in the heart of St. Louis, I'd have to ride it in, drop it off, not have it for days, then go get it, with traffic and hassle I'd rather spend afew late night hours in my garage burning the midnight oil with a six pack.
