Then your doomed... haha, try and source out for revised cyl head. I've seen that the dot stays even on the 2013 model. So the dot means good no dot means bad.

Because Hyosung never officially released any info, and this thread was created before the dot was discovered.

If I remember rightly I got the list from the German importers as they did the right thing and recalled.

They didn't all fail but an awful lot did mine failed at 25000ish and again at 32000ish.

I don't think valves are enough I believe it's valves and guides I'll see if I can find the recall, but you'll have to find someone that reads German.

I sent this questions to Hyosung Korea. Waiting for answer.

I know valves but what is that guides ?
is that something changeable just as a part(which i hope cheap thing)
2 cylinder head costs 1300$ + some extras.
I am really upset about that. beside I spent lots of money to customize my GT650.

KOSO RX2 gauge
Hayabusa TOKICO calipers
gsx650f rear shock absorber
Kawa Regulator Rectifier
Nice Quality Hand made Stator
Ducati Monster mirrors
Enduro handlebar
Givi head
DID X2 ring chain
Michlean tyres

Ohhhh guys, I dont wanna sell it =/

Hyosung does not reply my emails.
The docs you add here says black framed motorcycles doesnt have this problem.
I will not do any thing about this problem (except not stopping send email to hyosung korea unless they answer to me).  I hope mine is not have the problem.
Germans replaced just front cyclinder.

Hyo Korea won't reply to you, the bikes sold their interest is over.

Be careful about colours etc, different territories had different specs at different times.

Can someone post a pic of the entire engine, showing me where to look for this "dot"?  I've poked around my Fischer, but can't seem to find one.  But it's also mounted in a unibody frame, so it's hard to get "eyes-on" all the engine.

Thanks everyone,
