Hello,

So, my VIN number is : KM4MP51A**1103648, a GT650n, is not in that list.

So is it safe for me to conclude that my bike is safe?

Look for the dot on the timing chain side of the cylinder head.

I got a peek at the 2012 newest GT650. I think the best way is to check the "dot" mark on the cylinder heads.

It seems the dot stays, marking all the updated head design, the dot is even present on the 2012 model.

Some of the bikes that do not have the "dot" are not on this list, mine is a 2005 with no dot, but it is a later VIN than the ones listed here. My take is Hyo did take some stopgap measures on these engines to stop the valves from breaking before they did the whole head redesign. Of course mine only has 7K miles so it could implode any second...

Depending on the territory hyo replaced valves and guides on stock and recalled to affect the repair.

Needless to say hyo aus did not...

Okay I need some clarification.

My vin is KM4MP578951600181

All the other VIN's I see here have a letter in the middle...8th digit or so.  Where does my bike stand on the matter?  IT's a 2005 model if that matters.
