07 air filter basket hole

My question is, are all you 07 owners finding this error and what are you doing about it? Are the dealers taking care of you? Have you had any serious failures.

Most of us '07 WR owners know about it and have had it fixed with a replacement part from the dealer. (Some have just fixed the hole themselves.) Some did not know about it until after they had ridden their bikes, and they have approached their respective dealers about it.

Recall items like this should be stickied to the top of the wr forum, like they are at the SBN Yamaha forum.

I was not looking into the problem, but what are the dealers doing? Are they making it right for the guys who rode their bikes? It should not be an expectation that anyone riding a bike to read a forum like this. If there was a recall, how could a dealer let that bike out in April? Has anyone gotten there dealer to actually repair engine damage?

It was stickied for quite a while. Now it's a permanent part of the FAQ which is stickied as well. I do what I can to help people, but if you're new to the board and not reading the stickies, what more can I say? I've stopped ranting and raving about people being lazy and just posting questions about problems that have solutions already listed in the stickies, i.e. '07 filter holes, chains eating subframes, hard starting, throttle stops, gray wires, ad nauseum. Now I just sit back, shake my head and giggle and focus on making sure the board runs smoothly according to rules without getting my blood pressure elevated. When new and important things crop up, I will still post/sticky them. I will also continue to help out with tough questions and/or problems like I always have, but I won't spoon-feed anymore. Sorry...SC
This forum has done nothing but help me in many ways.Im glad Ifound it. thanks Clark. Bob

Needless to say, I took my bike and bought all the accessories I wanted from another dealer. BTW, if you're in the south King County area of Washington steer clear of South Seattle Sports Plaza in Federal Way... they really disappointed me.
