Yup.. seen that.. Mine is probably on the list, but it's not affected any longer since I changed my head pipes right after I got it, and don't have a cat converter anymore.. But if I get a notice.. I'll take it in anyway. :)

The 308,000 is worldwide, the 250,000 are in the US. Why it's being reported two ways, I have no idea, but that's the breakdown I read.

Why would they need brakes in their garages? ;)

I roll mine forward or backward a couple of feet at least once a week to keep the tires from getting flat spots.. I'd hate to lose my brakes when I'm doing that!

Mine's on the recall list. I knew there was a reason I've been putting the 15K service off for so long! Guess I'll put it off a few more weeks.
