Just got a call from Mike who was very straight forward (yay!) , but it turns out my C5 DOES fall in the VINs with the recall It's also a separate issue than my original gearbox issue. Apparently the parts will be flown in from India and mine will be one of the first fixed, but no timeline given.Bleh. Still, least I should hopefully be safe to ride over 50mph when I finally get it back.
Anyone reading this will have their enthusiasm for the new UCE a bit tarnished. I sort of feel bad I recommended the bike on some other forums. Matbe i'll just sit back and observe.
No tarnish here. My wife's C5 is on the way (teal) and she's looking forward to it. Sounds like this is the only engine to be offered next year, so I feel confident RE will do what it takes to correct any issues and keep the machines rolling. By the way, I'll be heading for the Land o' the Sky for Belle Chere and maybe a little ride. Wonder how my Bullet would do on the Dragon's Tail...
Maybe we can get a few Bulleteers together and do the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fun2drum is out this way, and there is some old guy who has an AVL we might be able to get ride if he has a tank on his bike.
Still no word. I think I'll call tomorrow, but doubt there will be any good news, probably another few weeks to go.Bleh.
hi marrtyn.(our) dealer hasn't rung me once about this recall, so today i rang him and finally he took my details, frame no etc. and said he would fax them to w/s and i would get the letter. by the way when i spoke to mike at the open day he had no record of me at all. regards davem (mack)
