being a newbie to these bikes i just read thru all pages and even checked the recall site, although it does not recognise vin#, also, my new to me 03 midnight star has a pair of brand new d404 tires! why are these so bad? it seems to ride ok to me considering its the first cruiser i have owned coming from sport and sport touring bikes, i wouldnt know any different at the moment!

Those Dunlops will feel OK when new, but will cup and won't last. Who put them on? The dealer? There are much better tires. Most dealers should be able to look up your VIN.

i just bought the bike in a private sale, the owner was not mechanically minded at all and he said the local yamaha dealer has looked after the bike the whole 10 yrs he owned it so i assume they put them on, i will keep an eye on them once they have done a few thousand km,
