Hi Guys!
Did You get a letter from DVSA about caliper swap from non anodised to anodised one?
Just writing down this post in case if You not get this letter.
Even if You bought second hand RE bike, you can contact local RE dealer and get it done for free.

Peter.

Does that mean all is OK
Have a look at this - is your VIN included?
As of July 2022, who knows? 2 dealers I rang thought mine SHOULD be OK.
Second one said he would do it anyway, "when he has new caliper stock", End August.
Some people who have had replacements, and still received this latest letter!

Some people have already had replacements, and still received this latest letter!

Talking with my local dealer in Wigan, they have done quite a few replacements before the DVLA forced the recall, the problem was that there was no official method of recording which bikes were done. Mine for example had the new calipers fitted before I took delivery, but until it gets the "official" inspection there is no paper trail.
