I turned my 'Bird in for her 500 mile service last Saturday. She was ready the following Friday. All of the recall parts are bolts and screws. It took the dealer about 3 days to get them. They put her on the lift and did the oil change, adjustments and recall work at the same time. They even detailed her for me. Which was nice 'cuz they asked me to bring her in dirty so that they could find any leaks easier.

For those that are interested, I had Castrol Power RS Racing 4T 10W 50 full synthetic put in my 'Bird. So far nothing evil has happened. She feels good. It looks like I'm back to seven day work weeks 'til the Fourth of July. Will let y'all know if the mileage improves with the next fill up. I got 45 mpg on the last one.

Well my dealer called, and my recall parts finally came in. Now it is just a matter of getting the bike in for them to work on it.

My dealer called yesterday morning to alert me of the recall and asked me when I could bring the bike in. I told him anytime; he said how about 2pm; I took it in and was done in 20 minutes. He said the originals looked the same as the replacements and they also had loctite on them. He said the torque values were different though.

My dealer performed the service recall on my bike Tuesday. It took about 30 minutes and at no cost to me as stated. Except that I can't go there without spending 50 or 60 dollars in T-shirts, patches, coffee mugs ..etc. I'm starting to understand why my wife can't pass by a shoe store without going in!

Hard times do not define a man but they will show you what he is made of.

I fully understand! It only took me 20 minutes for the recall, but I ended up with a nice pair of sunglasses too!

I got mine done this morning. I was told it would take 2 hours as they had to pull the exhaust to get at the ABS module bolts. I don't think this was BS either as I walked around back of the dealer, looked in the shop, and saw the tech messing with the exhaust. So what gives here? How come some of you guys got it done in 30 minutes?

My recall was the 4 mudguard screws on the front only - the ABS recall was something else entirely and it would makes sense to get at the rear wheel it would be easier to take the exhaust off for access - it might be necessary - or it might be a precaution so they don't scratch up or ding your pretty chrome pipes. I don't have ABS on my bird so purely conjecture on my part. Hope your bike is safer now than it was.

Oh gotcha. I'm an idiot. I wasn't thinking that some of you don't have ABS, and were only talking about the fender bolt recall. That makes sense. Please excuse my idiocy. lol

The bolts that hold the mudguard in place are the exact same bolts that hold the ABS module in place, which is why they have both been recalled (this according to my dealer).

My fender bolts were replaced on Saturday. Also came home with new gloves, oil and a filter.
