    Hi everyone! I have been going back and forth with yamaha Canada. I want to complete a rear shock recall but I don,t want my yamaha dealer to do it for the simple fact that I don,t trust them. They have 3 so called michanics that if you add up all the ages makes fifty. Anyways yamaha Canada finally agreed to let me do the work.. I'm kinda handy and from what I can tell it's pretty straight forward. Is there any helpful hint or anything I should look out for. Is there any other service I should do since I have the shock out. On last check the bushings in the swing arm all look good. Thanks in advance

    Taking the shock off is pretty straight forward. I take off my rear wheel so its easier to reach the bottom pin and to lighten up the load when you go to reinstall it.



    I'd check your bushings and grease your pin.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    Why no recall for US bikes?



    Did they use a different shock for Canada bikes?

    Nah. We just never raised enough hell to get their attention.



    This was done to death on the old forum. More recent U.S. models have the shock with the improved welds, but I'm not sure what year it kicked in.

    I bet a broken shock with an extended swing arm would raise hell. I guess it would tear the plate and a big chunk of the rear fender off.

    The reason there is no recall in the US is beacuse There was 174000 tw200 sold in the USA from 87 to present





    Canada................... 12



    This is not a fact but I bet it's not to far off.

    I just got this sweet little kit from Yamaha Canada for my 1987 TW200T , there was something like 500ish 1987 TW's affected by the recall according to the bulletin. Is it possible that the recall was only carried out in Canada due to fears of premature failure due to corrosion from salty road contitions???

    Can that replacement shock be ordered from a Yamaha dealer down here? Is there a part # for that?

    The recall is not valid in the USA. If you want the newer shock you will have to buy it. Go online and order one for a newer TW. It's gonna set you back $240ish




    Or skip a car payment and get this shock off ebay $760.00
