Default brake line recall

Anyone get their brake line rerouted based on that recall ? When i called the dealer recently, he told me that he had to order a kit? Is there a kit ? i think he was full of shit.. i thought it was just a re routing of the line .

I got it done a month ago. They told me there were parts reserved for me to complete the recall.

My dealer said the same thing must order a kit. He also want me to make an appointment to get it done. Iím over 200 KMS from the dealer and is a pain in the ass. He said no rush up in Canada it not been any issues, being we donít have the hot temperatures like down south. I have over 30,000 km on my bike and never had any issues Iím sure it will go a bit more.

Haven't got mine done yet either and really not to worried about it. The only dealer close to me now is my selling dealer who screwed up the first oil change at the 500 mile service. If the guy can't change oil I don't trust him to work on my brakes!

yea thats my issue. The local dealer is an idiot. Almost the same thing happened to me. They changed my oil, and when i went to pick it up, there was a puddle of oil on the ground... they didnt tighten the filter at all. So they come out and said well bring it back in.. umm yea... so this KID comes out , jumps on the bike, reaches for the key to start it. I grabbed his hand and said.. you really want to start that bike with NO oil in it.... oh your right he said.... so... i do everything i can myself after that.

Both a kit and an appointment were needed. Requires R&Ring the left passenger peg support. Could have done it myself, but need to have it on record when I sell it, or it shows as an open recall. I was able to watch the process and kibbitz with the wrench. All went well.

I stopped by my local dealer randys cycle. While I was there i asked what's the procedure for rear brake line as I was going to do this myself because I didn't want to leave the bike there or wait for awhile. Anyway service writer said by the time I explain it it'll be done. He looked for a large rubber washer that is needed for this recall. He had one available and did the reroute of the brake line at the passenger peg ( left ) bracket. Pulled bracket off. Moved line and put a rubber donut washer to prevent rubbing/wear. They were done by the time I came back from the parts counter buying rear brake pads!

Great dealer to work with.

I had my bike at the dealer about 1 month for other work. When I picked the bike up, I was told that the brake line recall was taken care of while they had the bike.
