    Has anybody who has had this done noticed any difference in the fueling of their bike? I got a message from my dealer to come in for it, but I loooooove the way my bike fuels as is. It is so perfect that i don't want anyone changing anything at all on the bike. Inclined to pass on the recall unless its a safety issue.

    I've dealt with the 'no, it won't affect anything' sales pitch before only to find it did.

    Didint see any diffrence. Beside they make the ecu learn the new sensor.

    I should know, i helped out the dealer connecting the navigator xl box and making the bluetooth work.

    This thing looks to have alot of bugs but it works once connected


    Lol

    Apparently, it's a service action, not a recall. There's no safety issue. I was waiting for mine, then the dealer mentioned that on the first one he put on, the bike started doing what the new demand sensor was supposed to fix. He took it to a track day and the power above 7000rpm was way down. They're checking to see if the new unit was out of date or something. Mine runs great as is, so I'm willing to wait.

    Not a safety issue!!! Before mine was replaced... My throttle suddenly and instantly became completely disconnected from the engine which revved to the redline until I hit the kill button. This was while filtering through traffic. Had I been cornering fast I'd probably have crashed! It f@@king well is a safety issue.

    Just got confirmed from my dealer who checked serial nos while fitting a new rear, I'll be receiving a letter about a recall for the demand sensor...

    I just picked up a 2010 RSV4 track bike (3500 mi.) and it's exhibiting the LHM throttle. :/ Sounds like this could be the issue, or maybe MAP, or... ? Since this is a track bike a lot of the stock controls are missing, including the left switchgear. I'm hoping the GuzziDiag will assist in pulling codes.

    So far I've not had much luck tracking service history on this machine, so I have no idea if the recall was ever done, and if not if they'd even touch a track bike that is 5 years old to do it anyway. Is there a definitive check of the Demand Sensort IDs / series that I can see, to tell if it's been updated or not? I've read many MANY threads about these issues but I can't figure out if there is an ID / SN I should look for and what's good and what's not.
