I was talking to a guy, at a local bike shop, and he was saying
something about the new R1's having 4 recalls already. is this true?

Welcome to Las Vegas.....Now go home!!!!

I've only heard of one under debate, something in the front, brakes or bearings. More than likely Yamaha won't go through with it though, they avoid recalls til most the years stock is bought up, or no recall at all.

HP is a poor substitute for experience and ability.

There are no recalls that I know of, and I doubt the front end one has any validity. I think the guy with the problems was just a new rider that doesn't know how to ride properly.

There are no recalls for the 2002 R1's, the only thing being looked into is how the front wheel assy was installed by the factoy and serviced by the dealership (they are trying to find out what caused the problem)! hope this helps.

YOUTH and TALENT are no match for AGE and TREACHERY !
