There is a thread on here somewhere too, just search for it. Has the technical bulletin and all. With some tips from others if you get a dealer who is slightly retarded and needs some pushing in the right direction.

Good point as there was never a Recall, just the Technical Service Bulletin. Sadly, alot of dealers still just look under the VIN for a Recall and turn alot of guys down. Here is a copy of what they should be looking for... TSB M2007-007

Any comments on the ticking just on the clutch side if the bike?

Also, has anyone used Emgo oil filters? My local shop says that's wat they put on all their bikes. They say their better than stock and just as good as K&N.

Use the famous Search button as there are plenty of threads on the Yami Tick.

And I wouldn't put an EMGO oil filter on my lawn mower. You may want to consider another shop if they suggest EMGO.

Just my $ .02

What is the Mobil 1 part number for the 07 oil filter? Is it m1-110?

In regards to searching threads for the yamatick, I know what the yamatick is. I'm asking this because it has been said that it is the #4 cylinder intake valves that seem to have the problem. That's why I'm asking if people with 07's just have a tick on the clutch side of the bike like mine does. Meaning that it could be the dreaded #4 bad valve actually making that noise. If the clutch side is #4 or #1the I can't remember?

Just get a K&N and be done with it. Maybe take the bike to a shop that doesn't use Emgo and ask them if the tick they hear is the normal one or a failing valve.

weather or not it was a recall.. it falls under the 'unsafe for normal street use' {parphrasing} banner and as such Yamaha will replace-reflash any '07 ECU with this issue.. but as has been mentioned.. a reflash update to '08 should do the trick nicely...

i've ran WIX, currently sticking with HIFLOFILTRO myself.. very affordable as you can purchase in packs of three on ebay @ $21...
currently at 13k kms running AMSOIL 10w40 Advanced synthetic since ~800miles
