If I'm not mistaken, I think the Firecats that had aluminum/silver steering adjusting block caps were the ones that needed replacement.....

Would people who's sled fall into the VIN range of the bulletin please respond to confirm this? Thanks.
correct, mine had the silver and I replaced them with black.
So the new ones are black not silver?

I haven't had a problem or had my slip yet

That is correct. The sleds that had 'black' colored ones on them from the factory seem to be ok, and as VFRcanada stated, the replacement ones are black in color.
phew....this is the only fix my dealer doesn't have in and I just realized (I did the Isovibe last weekend on my sled and love it) that I had the black ones from teh get go.
does this apply to all f7's? maby i'm missing it but i don't see any vin#'s like other service advisories.
