R1 TPS(throttle position sensor) recall - January 2, 2009, 05:12 PM

Just got the letter in the mail. Heard about it but have not had any problems with my R1. Anyone get it done? where you take it? Had the problem happen while riding?

Im not too worried about it right this second but figure I should get it done before riding season starts back up


I am ready to meet my maker but is my maker ready for the ordeal of meeting me...

TPS issues are usually at idle or at low throttle inputs. If you haven't had it done, make an appointment and take it in. They should be able to do it while you wait.

Did mine at Criswell... which is no more.
Went 17000 before I did it and never had any issues.

yeah I was about to say I sold my R1 (04) R1 in early '06 and got that letter.

I was told any Yamaha dealership by law is required to perform this recall.
for free

and also if you brought your bike in for service and they put your VIN into YDS this should have come up along time ago.

I also got one today. it says it's for the FJR1300, R1, R6, and Warrior. I don't know which bike they mean as I've owned 3 of the 4 in the last 3 years.

I don't get it... Yamaha is admitting the bike has a problem that serious enough for them to spend hundred of thousands of dollars (if not more) to fix.
It is free for you and now is the time to do it. Most shops are sitting on their thumbs just waiting for warranty work.
Why wait until you have an issue?

Having my bike stall on me once and knowing that I could have avoided it would be enough to piss me off.
When your bike cuts out and you dump it in an intersection your can't go and sue them, they already told you so.
