A major fault, I know, but I got a letter from the Piano Makers this morning to tell me my rear reflector does not reach the correct standards of UN reflectivness. 

 

Not entriely sure I will be making a special trip to the dealers to correct this!

Haha I got mine today too. I thought it was something serious til I read on 😂😂😂😂😂. I'm sure I'll cope.without this reflector. I can't remember seeing a rear reflector on the bike so maybe that's it. But bike due in for first service soon and is due to get a panel fitted to under warranty so may get them to do it  just out of curiosity

Unless the rule is different at Europe than North America, if it is nothing crazy serious, just bring the bike back to the dealer at your most convenient. It should not stop you from riding the bike as is.

 

Recall will always be there until you get it done so the dealer can clear off the system.

It's better to have a faulty reflector than an engine that leaks oil.

I got an SMS today. Yamaha Australia are doing a service campaign on the issue.

So it's not a serious recall, just in case some KTM fan boys got their panties a little moist.

Not sure I'll bother. Even though I'm probably the only T7 in the world with the original tail piece 🙂

Is there really someone somewhere measuring the level of reflection of reflectors....!!.  I've got the T7 Rally tail tidy and fitted my own little reflector to keep things legal.   Cheers,  Steve

I am an engineering in the heavy duty automotive industry, you have NO IDEA some of the ridiculous recall we had to make to comply with the rule...

 

For example, we had recently a few of the units recalled for some mining equipment because the license plate light was too low to the ground...by 5mm...

Sounds crazy!...the T7 reflector recall should have just been an advisory.  Oh well,  I guess it's good they are checking stuff 😏.  Cheers,  Steve
