I dropped her off at the dealer today , they are trying to help me.
Yamaha wanted it at the dealer and the dealer is going to call Yamaha ?!?!?!
Service manager said , may need the factory rep to come to take a look too .
I'll keep you guy's posted as to what happens next , but I'm sure it will take
a while , they were very busy
Here is a question to ask them morons. This is how I got my parts
How does a nut, that is supposedly tq'ed at the factory, and the nut has a locking mechanism, either by a bent tab or a punch, get loose?
And as per service manual, there is no maintenance on said nut. Plus, it is behind a cover so one cannot see it if there is an issue.
Answer, either the factory did not tq the nut to spec, or they did not lock down the nut properly. either way, it falls on the fault of factory screw-up.
I posed this question to the dealer, and with my answer, and he agreed 100%. I then called customer service, they in turn said they would check with dealer, since I knew my dealer agreed, I didn't see an issue.
This all took place while bike was in for tranny recall on a Thursday. Dealer so happened to have a pulley in stock, Yamaha over nighted shaft, bike picked up on Saturday at noon. had 47k on bike at the time, and well before a belt would need to be replaced at the 60k recommended time frame. so they couldn't blame the dealer either for messing with the nut for belt replacement.
