Sometimes it depends on the statistics, i.e. how many bikes have had this problem in certain regions.

I had something similar happen with a Mercedes ML320, there was a recall in the US because of a high number of incidents of failure of a certain part, however, in Australia there was no recall as the number of incidents was considered low due to the relative low number of vehicles sold in Australia. Even though my ML was out of the warrantee period, I kicked up a fuss, referring to the US recall and Mercedes ended up repairing the car at a substantially reduced cost.
