Honda Foreman 500 Recall!!!

My dad just got a recall notice today for his 07 foreman.
 
"Water can enter the right-side stop-switch wire harness and collect inside the plastic sheathing. The trapped water can seep into the wires and, over time, contaminate the throttle position sensor. Water in the throttle position sensor can freeze in cold weather and prevent the engine from returning to idle when the rhrottle lever is released."
 
So basically if the water freezes in there and you nail the throttle it could get stuck wide open!!! Just wondering if anybody else got this in the mail.

07 Camo 420
Warn RT30
26" MST's on SS108 Black
Black HMF
Optimizer
K&N air filter
Custom air box lid
EPI Clutch Kit
HL lift springs
Powermadd hand guards
Billet 4x4 shift knob
Heated thumb & grips
4" offroad lights
lots of stickers!

soon to come-

    Seems to be that TP sensors are a problem for all brands.  The Grizz 700 doesn't have that particular problem but they are notorious for going out from water contamination.

    07 700 GRIZZLY---Outlaw MSTs: 28x9.5, 28x12; Warn 3000 w Amsteel, (4) CEC 1" spacers, UNI filter, 1.25" bar relocation, removed shifter lockout, exhaust tip, 9003 SilverStars

    01 Cherokee, Rusty's Long Arm setup, 4.5" coils, 3.5" leafs w 1.5" shackles, Rusty's HD trac bar and mount, Rusty's steering linkage and steering box brace, no sway bars, 8.8 rear w discs, HP Dana 30 front, 4.10s, hardcore front bumper---it'll flex just a tad!
