It only took four days from time of ordering them until I got the bike back. Maybe cause they knew they were dealing with a woman... LOL

THANKS YAMAHA!!

I just finished changing my sparkplugs today. I notice I had the same burnt (redish/orange like chili powder type of thing) all over the bottom of the coil (looks almost the same as the pics)

I just wanna know what happen if I just let it like that? Is there any bad side affect whether on the sparkplugs, other components or the performance of the bike itself? It was the first time I opened a bike like that, and it gave me a little bit of hard time earlier.
That's why I don't feel like to open in again.

Ok I just bought the bike used about 2 mth ago. Where can I claim the defect?
can I just go to the nearest Yamaha dealer and ask for a new mitsu coil?
Or I gotta pay $20/pop for those?

If your bike is an 03 and it has Denso coils, it is covered by Yamaha TSB M2003-019 regardless of the bikes warranty status.

Means that I can just go to any Yammi dealer?

Yes. When you had the coils out did you notice if they are Denso or Mitsubishi?

it is Densos.

Are they just cover the parts or parts and labor?

Cause I just change my plugs yesterday, and I don't feel like doing it again

Parts and labor are covered by the Bulletin. I'd suggest doing the swap yourself if the dealer will let you. Remember it is warranty work and as such the dealership gets paid less for doing the work. One would think they would care even less about your bike considering they are only getting 'warranty rate' for the work.

Is this something I can have my mechanic do and it will be covered or must I bring it to an actual yamaha dealer? My mechanic just replaced my plugs 2 weeks ago too.

My coils on my 03 r6 were completely trashed. All were burnt, but 2 were completely fried. The rubber was just falling apart. I also put nearly 20k miles on them before the problem became noticeable. I replaced them before I heard about the recall...which sucks, but i only paid like $21 a piece from ronayers.com.
As for what happens if you don't replace them....serious issues for me. some of my cylinders would randomly stop firing, so I would get to about 8k rpm....right into the powerband....then i would lose power, drop down to 5 or 6k rpm, then they would start firing again and my bike would jump back up to 8k rpm. So ....yeah..sounds like the makings of a first gear power wheelie huh? Not really cool when your not expecting it..or worse when your cornering and you suddenly losed power and your bike starts to dive. I'm honestly surprised that I didn't wreck.
So yeah....get those coils changed out before they start causing trouble.
