      My 09 with 500 miles is now at the shop getting the two front cylinders lifters replaced, tried to get them to do all four but they said they wanted to do these and check again after they road test it.  I will let you know how it goes.

      just out of curiosity.....how many miles are those of you that are having problems with the lifters getting on the bikes before the lifters fail??? i've got 5500 on mine now and we are getting on towards winter now and the end of my warranty so its making me kinda nervous.

      From all the posts I have read it is pretty early on. Less than 1k and usually at 500 miles.
      The above post is strictly the opinion of the poster, disregard as necessary.

      If the above post is in RED then it was a moderator talking, you should pay attention.

      Honestly even out of warranty you will probably be covered. You can goto a few raider sites and document the defect by printing it out and a good dealer would get it covered. I will be shocked if in the next 6 months NHTSA doesn't come out with a bullitin. Yamaha is a decent company to work with its the dealers that are scary..

      I asked the service manager today at my local dealership if he had heard anything about the lifters. I informed him about what all I have read here. He said "yamah put out a bulliten stating that the lifters in the Raider are very noisy." He then told me if I start to hear them get louder the lifters are fine. Boy do I hope mine end up being ok.

      Everyone that has been done around here had less than 1000 miles.  I think they go bad up front, so if you have put more on it than that you are probably ok.
