Resurrecting another old thread... Reminder to get your recall!
I have an 09 STR and kinda wondered if I had a small problem with my R/R, but never thought too much about it.
Over the winter I installed an aFlasher (recommended!) and it started to flash after I got off the highway (low voltage warning). Has done it a couple times now. I also notice that the idle is a little rough during these times too.
After my ride home today, I stopped my engine to get off and open the garage, and the bike wouldn't start again. I'm glad I'm at home, but what a PITA.
Anyways, I came inside and called my dealership. They ordered a new R/R for the recall, and should be here in 2 weeks. I can't wait. Free upgrade
So if you have a bike which is covered by the recall, just go and do it! Do it before you R/R starts to screw up (which is very likely!)
Also I recommend that you spend a couple $ and get an aFlasher!
