No you were clear, no problems there.

I was just fast forwarding a year or so into the future when the warranties have all expired and some poor guys knob falls off and he enters the YAMAHA dealer and comes out screaming about the price of his new knob. He might feel a bit shafted..

Never mind.

Seems like a good time for the bling makers to do some very fancy aftermarket replacements, like they do for the Ducati mid life crisis guys.

Speaking of which..This has nothing to do with YAMAHA or knobs but it was funny as.

This is how Australians do reviews.
