Now that is not a two minute fix! That’ll please the service departments...

Hi
no VOSLA recalls as far as I can tell


EDIT
From Barry's link
Luckily, Yamaha does have a fix for the issue and they will be contacting affected FJR1300 owners. To solve this problem, Yamaha dealers will be inspecting and reprogramming the ECU, in addition to replacing the main axle and drive axle assemblies, at no cost to the owner. The start date of the recall is expected to be January 13, 2021.
Does it say that you can solve a gearbox weak cog problem with a ECU inspection and reprograme?

EDIT on the 1300A there is a VOSA recall for this problem, The VOSA SITE SAYS "Affected units need to have the transmission replaced with countermeasure set"

You can solve the problem if you reprogramme the ecu to give less power/torque!

hi
you are both right-- but you know what I mean, Anyway you can do Both, well just dont fuel or spark 3 cylinders.

But the point is that you should not use the software to solve hardware problems, the gears should have been designed to do match the engine, in fact they should have some spare capacity built in.

I find myself wondering what kind of bike will go fast and under load in second gear. :eek:

I reckon something would throw its hand in if you went fast in second gear on most bikes.

Why would that be? Don’t people run their bikes hard through the gears any more?

I really don’t get the bit about the ECU though, unless they are simply going to take out of the motor to protect that gear.

And what are ‘main axles and drive axles’? Sounds like some non technical journalists offerings. :-k
