This was a brand new bike, I think he's 100% entitled to Yamaha making it right, there should be zero noise coming from the forks. The video is 6 years old but I agree with him 100%. Imagine when he tries to sell the bike and has to try and explain this to the potential buyer afte he takes it out for a test drive and gets that racket from the forks? If I was the potential buyer, I would have walked away from that deal immediately.
So clearly Yamaha was not fixing this to his satisfaction, so he took it to the next level, good for him. I would not let it go either... there's no way I should have to be "improving" my forks within a year of buying a brand new bike. Wonder what ended up happening...
