Dealer got the stop sale and delivery notice when I was about to pick up the bike this week. They said the notice will be in public around Sep.

I've paid in full but I just can't ride it and they don't when it will be fixed.

I'm in NY, US.

In India, we have been collecting all battery dead/ alternator failure issues data together, so that we can request for a recall of all the batteries. We have riders of all batches right from July 2018 to August 2019. Reports are coming from random batches.

What happens if you’re the 2nd owner? Can you still take the bike and have a fault repaired for free?

Affirmative, I bought mine second hand, with 280 or so miles on the clock, and later received the sidestand recall notice and they did the work.

My perfectly running battery is a paperweight. I switched over to lithium already.

You can't beat 2 lbs battery at 330 amps compare to 8-10 lbs at 120-160 amps.

Sorry but it’s not clear from your post. What is the recall for? Battery, Alternator?

Hi,
I’m assuming that you have replaced the original battery with a higher capacity lithium ion battery which fits into the same place.
If correct, could you tell me the make and spec of what you bought. Thanks.

I got the SSB Ultralite lithium battery 290 cca for the G310R, it is slightly smaller (less height) than the oem battery. Around AU$160 - AU$180
