When will yamaha fix the flywheel issue?

7 posts in this topic

I have a wr 450 on the way, and it is supposed to arrive some time in may. Does anyone know if it will still need the crank and flywheel lapped and glued? I am hoping that yamaha has enough decency to stop shipping broken bikes. :D

If the bike is fixed from the factory, there will be a small 'punch mark' in the frame just in front of the VIN on the steering head. If there is no punch mark, you'll need to have the m2003-007 work done (lap & loc-tite.)

Cheers,

So have there been any failures on bikes that have been "fixed" at the factory? And is the factory fix any better than the one that is performed at the dealer?
