Coming in late on this, was there an official recall for models built up to 12/08?

I am the 2nd owner of my 08 and my R might be within this build date, but have 0 starting problems yet with 2800 miles...

The actual recall was only in Japan. Nothing official in the US, but Yamaha US has replaced everybody's who's asked so far under warranty.

Do you know if Yamaha US has replaced pumps before 12/08 build date which had not malfunctioned yet?

Never even checked before, but it says 10/08 on mine, so it looks like mine might have been one of the first 2009's built in October of 2008?

I just went out and tried to start the bike again and it fired right up.

Waddya think... should I just get it to the dealer and tell them I want the fuel pump replaced under warranty? I really wanna ride this thing, but don't wanna get stranded with it.

I would.

Tell them what happened and you know for a fact that numerous people have had this exact same issue and you want it replaced. If your dealer gives you a hassle, I've heard contacting Yamaha US customer relations directly will get it taken care of.

Well, sounds like it might be the fuel pump. I'm gonna print some of this stuff off and go to the dealer this afternoon to see if I can get it scheduled. Hopefully they don't have problems getting a fuel pump...weren't those backordered or something for awhile?

I'm dropping the bike off at the dealer today. A bit worried how this will go though LOL... the service guy said they will check the fuel pump to see if it's the problem. Now, I'm not sure how they are going to "check it", but I hope it's not a case of it starting fine for them, so they say there isn't a problem. If so, I may have to call Yamaha and see if they can just do the replacement considering my bike was built 10/2008 and I've had a starting problem. I told the service guy that, even had some printouts from forums showing fuel pump failures, and he said they need to duplicate the problem first, or test it to determine it's faulty.

I just wanna ride the damn thing LOL... and we are running out of good weather here!
