    True, though the newest bikes, 17 and up, don't have the "fix". They have a different crimping method that "fixes" the issue.

    Despite allegedly being on “the list” for these I still haven’t heard a peep from my dealer. Are these things still trickling out in limited batches?

    My dealer is out of the collars at the moment.

    I had the stanch recall while down in SoCal, and brought my Britome clamps home. Maybe there's a market for Britome to re-machine these to be usable with the new collars/bushings... ? Or we can sell them to RT owners who are, or should be, concerned.

    If this is related to throttle errors, there is a software update available for that issue.

    They are more readily available and ordering shouldn't be a problem.
