Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

I took it back last month and they emptied the engine and measured the correct about and put it back in, I am having to do 600 miles then take it back so they can measure it again to see if the bike is using excessive oil.

I am hoping that it was just a glitch in what happened (oil went from 4/5th up the dipstick to off the dipstick in one day riding, about 400 miles).

But the oil issue is one for the other threads

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

Yea got mine,
Going to Pidcocks this Friday morning to have clip changed. Apparently they will put a thinner clip on to give better grip. But i did have to top up my coolant about a week after taking the bike, since then no probs.

Sorry i realise not the thread for this but if this helps, they do use a little oil (around 1 ltr per 2000miles) this is acceptable and no different from most jap bikes dependant on how they are ridden, mine is ridden hard + track days and has used just over 1 ltr in 2400 miles.

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

It's only certain V.I.N numbers that are getting recalled. Mine was fixed today with the 4000 mile service....

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

Yep I got that letter a while back, hose has been replaced. My bike is a B/W model registered last feb, so I guess its an early model. Nealy 9 months on in more or less constant rain and no probs, finish holding up nicely too.

Re: 2008 Fireblade Recall

If your worried you hadn't got the letter, and your unsure if your bikes in that range or not, just pop into the dealer (or call them), with your chassis number and they can put it in the system, then get find out what recalls are outstanding.

You can do this with any bike.
