In fact, there was a thread on the YZF450 forum that describes the fix for the clutch plates.

1. If it is a recall then absolutely!
2. If only a TSB, that depends on how nice your service advisor is. If under warranty and your complaining about a problem that he can duplicate, then I say it'll get fixed by any dealer. If difficult to duplicate, you back to how cool your service advisor is.
3. If you originally bought in Canada and now want to get a recall/TSB repair at a US dealer...good luck, you might get it fixed you might not. Probably have to take it back to Canada and try for some "good will" repairs at the selling dealer.

Thanx for the headsup on the Trick Dualsport Kit.. I
will Probably go with that unit. But first I will wait to see if you have to ground float the stator. Again, Thanx.

I have replied to another post about the service bulletin being just a little different to stopping production worldwide... One of the foundations of this site is the sharing of information - good or bad - about bikes, dealers, accessories tracks etc... When it becomes an issue of personalities, it degrades the whole site for everyone... so let's all try to rise above that level and stick to the bikes... No one is making you log on and read, and we would all appreciate every member, new or longstanding, to stick to keeping it cordial and factual... If you you want to hiss at anyone, try PM's - the rest of us just don't want to know...
It seems this thread is being hijacked and it will be watched more closely...
As a moderator, it would be nice to have extra time to read everything and keep everyone happy, but that is never going to happen - so if you guys can keep it civil and stick to facts, then we can all have a bit more riding time... or time with our family...
If I want more 'bitter', I will change the type of beer I drink... Sometimes we need to let things go... take a deep breath and clear our minds...

Is your post worth a couple of quarters? LOL
I reckon if I deleted every one of EGO's posts, I would have enough for the new YZF-1... LOL

To be honest I really didn't expect anyone to call me on the differences of a "Tech Bulletin" and a " Recall". I really wanted to focus on the clutch issue at hand and not the terminology of what the path of the repair will be. All I know is that my dealer told me to give them the bike as soon as I can so they can fix the problem. That's it. Nothing more.....
There was a tech bulletin written on that, but no recall...BIG difference. Do you mean recall?

I wasn't trying to call you out on the carpet whether it was a TSB or recall. I apologize if I came across a bit strong. My point was since you do not have a waranty if it were a recall then you should be able to get it fixed easily, if it were a TSB then it would be harder. If you're dealer has told you to bring it in right away to fix it then I guess everything is cool right? Is it the Canadian dealer who asked you to bring it in or a US dealer?

The "Recall" vs. "Tech Bulletin" issue is sort of a sensitive point because it seems that there are those who would tend to want to foster "bad tidings". The question of a possible "production hold" has recently been beat to death here and some of us are probably just a little over-sensitive to somebody else "crying wolf".
Nobody wants to kill the messenger, we just want to make sure we understand the message.

Hey Dan, don't you know anybody with a YZ 450? Did all the YZs need this fix or only some?
Yes, My good friend has one, I'm not sure what he did but......
I'm gonna have them drill the oil passages instead of the plate mod...
