I too didn't find the Service Bulletin on the Yamaha web site for the dealers. That is why I had to correct my previous post, as I received it in the mail on Saturday. Ask the dealer you are working with to call their RTA and have them fax a copy to them.

Engineering 101 Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
Pick up my 03 WR450F tomarrow.

A friend collected his on Friday, and true enough his key sheared on Sunday.
Our engine numbers are in the 9000's, I would have thought that by now the problem has been solved at factory level, prior to despatch.
Is the lapping of the flywheel the solution?
What worries me is a number of people continue to experience the problem after the mod.
I ride a fair amount of time by myself. I could be up to 30miles from home at any point. If i have a major failure I'm in big trouble. Do I buy this bike or not?????

My friends motor that failed is number 516, apparantly his was from an earlier shipment.
Mine is number 9015.
Are the later manufactured motors fault free?

As far as I have heard, there really hasn't been any more trouble since the first fiasco. If there was, you would have seen it in here..Guaranteed!. The bike is awesome..no get down there and pick it up!

Did you happen to ever get that Service Bulletin? I wouldn't mind a copy if available, I'm ordering my WR this weekend and want them to do the checks before I take delivery, if possible.
