`72 is the first year of the 1000 cc motor. Having mine since new the only recall I ever got was for a un-staked swingarm nut.

I was a junior Mechanic right out of MC Mechanic school at a dealer in ‘73, doing primarily warranty jobs and new set ups.
‘72s were good.
‘73s of all American models kept me very busy.
The Italian bikes were ok too.
