Gen 2 possible recall

Read this on another board....anyone heard?

"read on another forum about the rivets that hold the gear on the clutch basket failing at high rpms and pretty much wiping out the whole bottom end of the motor. just a heads up".

I've never heard of catastrophic failure coming from the rivets on the clutch basket on any bike. They become loose but you'll know as soon as they are. Sounds like you have a dry clutch. Some of the SV650's had that issue as well as the Hyosung GV650 and GT650. But none ever caused bottom end failure.

Kinda of a bit old for a recall like this one. Been 2 years now, the Gen 2 has been out. I hope this is more of a wind up.

Listen, I have a G2 and read this somewhere and figured if there was any truth to it, i'd find out here. I read it, then posted here. I know nothing more about it.
