Oddly I figured that by now there wouldn't be any more pre recall bikes left, guess my bike's been sitting around for awhile.

jong Yes I did read the recall notice and it was for brake fluid leakage not seepage, there is a difference.
What if the seals let go while out on a ride?
And what are the hazards - "brake fluid could leak out onto the wheel".
But don't worry I'm sure that couldn't possibly cause any problems as you still have your rear brake.
Muppet.
If it was my bike on the recall list I'd rather be safe than sorry.

So not being hyper sensitive, just don't like seeing crap, uniformed and potentially dangerous advice being offered.
Sure. You win. Ultimate safety is king not reason. Also, did you even read the recall? It's for fluid seepage not total brake failure. If it's not leaking ride it till the dealer can fix it. If it's leaking put the bike up till it's fixed. BTW you can always get a cage is safety is tops. lol

Not the best advice, you will be in a world of hurt if you think a rear brake will safely pull you up.
Better to wait for the new calipers.
I would still use the front brakes. I would just take solace in the rear brake being there for me. You do realize bikes at one time never even had front brakes right. Yes they were lower powered but you don't have to twist the throttle too much either. BTW, a rear brake will stop you in a non panic situation. Especially with engine braking. I have done it. Jeez. I did'nt say go 100 and canyon carving. Don't be so hyper sensitve. Go try it once. Lastly, I would, of course, get it fixed as soon as possible.
