    I dropped mine off at the dealer tonight to get this done tommorrow.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    Needed the chain recall

    Took my 800gs for repairs (fan not working) and the deal told me that I needed this recall, cool won't have to clean the chain.

    Anyway the guys were on the ball and I had my baby back real fast.
