    Bumped into the recall while doing some reading. No idea from the recall or the article what the remedy is.

    Recall Update

    Took my bike in for the 600 at Max in NH - they were fully aware of the recall and did it to my bike.

    The repair is comprised of putting in a foam piece into the brake reservoir to take up space and eliminate the fluid from foaming
