Service Bulletin M1215 Question

I bought my bike practically new last Fall, 08. I see that the Service Bulletin was issued in Jan of 08. If my bike was sitting at the dealership when that Bulletin was issued, should they have replaced that nut with the kit before selling it to me??

You can just unscrew the cap by hand and look and see if they did
the new nut has a built in flange.

Probably not. Unlike recalls, Service Bulletins only get "fixed" if you complain.

I'm complaining.

If memory serves, didn't you have to play around with the fall-away nut and not the top nut?

No the new top nut and a higher torque spec are the fix.

I could have swore Roy had a pic posted somewhere and said it was the lower "star" type nut that was his issue.

I circled the red part for a buddy of mine at the PDC.

Yours is an R, so I don't know if it's somethign different or not. On mine it was just the nut and higher torque, nothign needed to be done with that star except the adjustment of the fall-away, but it wasnt any different than usual. Except I insisted he make it tighter than spec when he did it

I wonder if Roy meant that the "star" would seat when the new nut was compressed to the torque values needed.

The 'star' nut will seat in the threads a bit when you tighten the top nut; that's why you will need to check your fall-away after torquing. I find that if I set my fall-away to the loose end of the scale, then torque, the fall-away ends up at the tight end of the scale, right where I want it. But, that's on my bike. And I've changed to a steel stem and torque to 80 foot-pounds.

I'd be willing to place a small wager on whether your dealer voluntarily applied the bulletin fix to your bike before you bought it.

No need for that wager. I'd be my balls they didn't touch it.

The new nut isn’t needed for models with a steel steering stem. All 2008 VRSC models have steel steering stems. There’s an update for the M-1215 Service Bulletin (M-1215B dated Jan 29, 2208) that specifically states that 2008 VRSC models don’t need the new nut and aren’t covered by this SB.
