I am going to my dealer on Saturday and see what they tell me. As I know the parts lady personally, I am hoping I'll get a straight answer. Also hoping that Canadian sales are tied differently from US sales, and we'll have our own system rather than simply sit in line with the USA customers.
I will say one "good thing" about all this. The recall came in at a time when the riding season is mostly winding down. Yes, people from warmer climes are directly impacted now by this recall, however, this would have been a LOT harder to swallow if this issue came up only next April.
Right now, we stand a chance of having everyone back on the road in April, rather than all of us parking our Slings just as we wanted to get them out and going.
Not defending the issue, just recognizing the slightly brighter side of it.
