Wow! Just the F3, or all of the Brutale/Rivale/other 800 models as well?
My Rivale motor says F3 on the case, it had better include all of them. Since my bike is broken and in the shop AGAIN, this would be the perfect time to have it done.

Wow. This has been a long time coming.

One of the good things about recalls, is that they are good forever, so even if your bike runs out of warranty, the recall is still golden.

This recall is for the uk only, sorry American friends. Lol.
Seriously? Is it true that there's a recall? I haven't been contacted?

It's a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin), not a recall. There are generally two types of recalls: Mandatory and Voluntary. A Mandatory Recall (in the US) is coordinated with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is a government agency charged with all safety related vehicle issues.

Likely the starting problem will never be a Mandatory Recall because it's not really a safety issue. No reason to do a Voluntary Recall as there may be 3-cylinder bikes out there which are not experiencing the problem. So, the TSB is the obvious choice in this case.

Nonetheless, a TSB opens the door up for all 675/800 MV owners to get the new starting gear kit.
