If the fuse block is overloading, what will relocating it do?

Well, today was the day. the recall work itself was brief. just over an hour in my case. in short, the technician removed the battery and replaced the fuse with a more robust one. He stated it as as more of a pre-emptive recall, rather than a part in immediate need of service. All in all, a quick and rather painless appointment so hopefully your visit to the dealer will be just as easy.

They did. Same location but they replaced it with a more heavy duty unit instead of the original. Sorry i thought they moved it also but in reality just put in a stronger unit.

Thank you for clarifying the recall. I too am waiting for the fuse block part for my 2015. Have fun and a safe ride.

Brewer Cycles made the recall mod for me as soon as parts arrived. Great service every time.
