Did you just get your bike? I had a recall on the gas tank but like a year and a half ago or so.

Honda just sent out the recall notice again to those of you that didnt have the tank inspected/changed out according to their records.

Yeah, I got one too. I just haven't gotten around to bringing it in yet.

Anyone know how long it's supposed to take?

I just got mine yesterday also, but I just registered this bike in the last 4 months, so I guess when you regisiter it (new title) the vin is flagged, and you get the notice.

Ok, when I got this bike I followed the link in the sticky about this recall and my VIN checked out ok. Just called the stealership and he logged into the "honda site" while we were on the phone and said my bike hasn't had the fix, bring it in. So either honda has expanded the recall, or the owners link is wrong. If you get the notice call for an appointment, he said about 1 hour to fix.

I had mine done a couple years ago. The dealership was ready for it so it took about an hour. I would call your dealership ahead of time do they can get the part, unless you feel like leaving your bike for a few days.

Brought mine in last year and they ended up replacing the tank.
I guess I got a bad one.

got the 2nd notice too. still haven't taken it in. they told me last year that it would only take an hour or so. i said cool. then they said, but we don't keep the parts on hand so it'll take about 2 weeks. YIKES!!!! and they won't order it until mines off (WTF is that about) so when there's at least 1 month of bad weather/or no track day's (DECEMBER) i may take it to get done. hope they notify me again before then, or i'll forget Again!

that doesn't sound reasonable....call Honda to confirm they have to take the old tank off before ordering the new tank
