Interesting there that it only mentions the FXDB models...from what I heard it's on all 2006 Dyna models, though I have yet to receive anything in the mail from HD telling me my model is recalled.

I just looked through my service manual for the 06 Dyna's and those parts mentioned as being the ones that will be replaced are deep inside. They have to tear a lot of stuff out to replace them. This bugs me because I can guarantee my bike will get scratched up in the process. I've got too much chrome for them not to be careful doing things because it's not their bike. I've never had this popping out of neutral thing happen to me so I'm half tempted to just ignore this recall and leave things alone.

The first two mentioned are inside the tranny. Apparently the will need to pull it out, then open up the tranny to replace them. Wonder how long it will take them to do this?

Not sure, perhaps a day or so once your bike goes in for service.

I know one thing for sure though, I don't want to be one of the first ones to go in for this. I'll wait til next Spring or Summer and let the techs get a good understanding of what needs to happen and have them cut their teeth on other owners bikes.

So far I've had no issues with false neutrals on my Bob. But then again I'm overly cautious, and untrusting of the neutral indicator. It's a habit I picked up long ago from dirt bikes that didn't have one.

I might just ride this one out too.

I was hoping the work to repair this would have to be performed in the primary. That would have provided me with an excuse to get the forward controls put on at the same time.

06 Super Glide

my Glide is one of the recalled, HD customer service is refuseing to pay for new Syn3 to replace the Syn3 i have in there now [close to 1000 miles on Syn3]. they want to drain it out and then pour it back in after the repair! or use new nonSyn3 trany oil!
shop where i bought the bike says they'll use new Syn3 for $5 cost on my part, $5 = Differance in qt of Syn3 vs dyno trany oil.

after putting up with this recall junk their trying to hold me up for $5.
over $5 they have turned a loyal HD costumer into a vary unhappy one!!!

Damn, that sucks. Better Business Bureau is always a good way to go. I received a free windshield from Honda by writing the BBB. That is lame they wont put in the syn3 though, I dont even get that...

Later,
