    But is it still bad even ridden below 120km/h ?

    May be DUKE 250 tyre would be fine as an alternative if reduction in height of 8mm is not an issue.

      It has H rating no issues with speed, issues comes up During braking and it lacks grip. It's very scary during rain.

          Yes those bike getting recalled are getting free coupons and if dealer is not giving please complain to yamaha, because coupons are inside the box in which new parts are coming.

                    Will talk to the srvc manager but he said that since it was replaced already only the tank bracket is to be changed.

                      This is an official recall, so no matter what they should change yours. So please ask them to do it.

                        Just got a call from my dealer for switch and bracket change. Will it be done in the showroom or SVC? I'm confused. Mine is Perfect Rider

                          Ask your dealer man! Some showrooms (i.e. sales) have the svc in the same building, some a further away. So how does your dealer operate?
                          This would ideally require a mechanic to work on the bike (not like the sales guy bolting on a rear view mirror). So they might either have the mechanic over at the showroom or ask you to visit the workshop to get it done. Only they can answer that question.

                            Yup, even the lady who called was not sure. Anybody already had it done in Bangalore can help? Probably, I have to visit the SVC.
                            Let's see.

                              It has to be done in SVC, it's not a simple procedure, whole tank has to removed. How can they do this at showroom?

                                True that! I will visit the SVC instead of wasting time going to showroom. Thanks guys.
                                Edit: BTW how much time it would take for both the changes? Any idea?
