Anyone knows anything about recent Yamaha recall? When picking up my bike at the service today, I was told that Yamaha has found some issues with battery/charging on the FZ-07. Supposedly, Yamaha will be sending out notice letters to owners once they have a 'fix'.

That's the first I've heard of it. We haven't received anything yet.

That's strange. Maybe there is something else going on...perhaps with the stalling issue reported earlier, cause the battery terminal issue should be a quick fix provided Yamaha has sent out the fix to dealers. Actually, if they are addressing the stalling issue, that too should be a quick fix, but they have to have the software first. Could be they have decided to get the software available first, then do a large recall as well as fix any bikes before they go out. That exact thing occurred with my Zero S last year...stopping sales, then issuing a recall on owned bikes to download new software...firmware they called it. That's just a guess.

The fz07 will require new bartery wires. When you make the appointment for the service/oil change, remind them to order the wires. Takes up to 2 weeks to get them:(

I'm sure the dealer would prefer to do an oil change or something else in addition to the recall work, and my dealer did ask how many miles I have on my bike. I told him 1400 miles so he didn't say anything, but had I said 500 miles, I'm sure he would have tried to talk me into doing the warranty work along with a 600-mi. service...marketing don't you see? That's good though if you were planning to have the dealer do the first oil change. Saves you a trip.

I had the cable changed yesterday - whole thing took 30 minutes and it was a good opportunity to install a trickle charger for the winter.
