Help with Recall


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I bought my son a 2007 Honda CRF150RB back in January 2007 vin ending in K003483. It was a little too much bike for him as he was only 10 and it gets very little use. I just noticed their was 2 recalls for the cam and swingarm. When reading the cam recall notice it stated that the campaign was ending March 2010. I never received any recall notice and I changed adresses soon after I bought the bike.

Any suggestions on getting the cam recall done even though I'm past the notice. I'm planning on taking it in for the swingarm.

Thanks,

Rich

Check with your local dealers. The cam needs to be changed. A friend, who's son raced them at the top amateur level swears that it is not a question of if it's gonna break, it's when it's gonna break. As for the swingarm, my local dealer just did mine last month.

I asked my local dealer if they could do the recalls and they said yes to the swingarm but no to the cam due it expiring in March. Anybody have any info. or ideas on getting the cam done under the recall or am I stuck paying for it out of my own pocket.

By the way the service advisor said that the cam recall only affected certain bikes and they would only do it after failure. I told him that my bike was one of the certain bikes based on my vin and that it was not a queation of it happening but when.

He didn't seem to want to help any further.

+1 try to see if another dealer will work with you, the cam recall was already done when i bought my bike, but then the swingarm recall popped up and one dealer acted as if they couldn't get me a swingarm, while the other did it that weekend.
