It's about time. Too bad Yamaha didn't take it upon themselves to fix it without ODI intervention like they did with the TPS and ECM "altitude" problems.Recall on Ignition Switch
You are EXACTLY RIGHT.:agree::agree::agree:Yeah, but Yamaha did it and actually pretty quickly compared to what Honda does. Applies mostly to the GenII 06-07s for the wire on the ignition switch problem.
True, but I bet they were feeling some pressure from all the posts of failures over on the fjr forum from the data put together by Barabus and listed there. It also took data gathering by TruWrecks over on that forum to get things moving on getting the new ECM which solved the altitude sickness problem with certain model year FJR's. Compared to Honda, Yamaha has been far more responsive in addressing issues on the FJR.Yeah, but Yamaha did it and actually pretty quickly compared to what Honda does. Applies mostly to the GenII 06-07s for the wire on the ignition switch problem.
Yeah, but my st-1300 kept my feet much warmer than the wing does.I agree that Yamaha has done a better job of addressing issues than anyone. Consider the heat issue - even though it is not a safety issue, they actually did a fairly signifiant redesign after only three years to eliminate the heat. How long as the ST1300 been out and Honda has acted like that bike doesn't even exist.
Yeah, and you'd have all that heat from the engine enveloping you when you are sitting in the heat/traffic and the fans kick on. It is all a trade-off.Honda refuses to admit they have a bad design flaw in the GL1800 overheating in slow moving traffic. If they had turned the fans the right direction they could stay on till the bike cools down even when riding at 10-15 mph.
