Did anyone get a recall from Honda before a failure? If so, which country?

There have not been any official recalls that I know of.  Just extended warranties/repairs on the stator/flywheel components.  The Canadian one was not a recall, but extended the stator warranty an additional 7 years (the original warranty was only 1 year)

2008 CBF100A8 (Canadian MKI), 29,000 km, original stator.  I checked out my documentation last night and Honda Canada actually extended the warranty to 10 years for the stator, but no recall.

Cheers,
Ken

Haven't gone through all the responses but on the face of it, it looks like the ratio of non fail : fail is working out at closer to 2:1 never mind 20:1 or higher.  Quite a few who have not experienced a failure yet are waiting for the day but the bit than made me smile was the optimists who don't think it is going to happen.   
 
There is no end date on the poll and if circumstances change and you suffer a failure you can change your voting.

Just had a thought - Honda now has an upgraded stator which gets fitted when the originals burn out. So when did they start fitting the upgrade to new Mk I's in the factory? If this change occurred in, say 2009, it could be that owners of later bikes are voting in the poll. This will skew the figures, suggesting the old style stators are more reliable than they are.

Any idea when the stator design was changed on new bikes?

I had a stator fail mid 2010 which was replaced with the original "duff" part. If I recall correctly the first mentions of upgraded parts occured slightly after that, so as a ballpark I would say late 2010/early 2011. By my reckoning that means all mark 1 machines will be susceptible to this problem (that's not the same as saying all mark 1 machines will suffer this problem)
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.

Seems amazing that Honda made (or procured) the same useless stator for 5 years, and perhaps another 2 years before that on the Fireblade, before they did anything about it!

Anyway I'll leave this thread for poll respondents now.
