IF the threads are damaged, a good shop should be able to chase them and clean them up. don't do it your self. have someone like patrick do it.

Should Yamaha replace the counter shaft if the threads are too damaged to reliably hold the nut?
I think they should. They had a recall and should be held accountable for the damage caused by the faulty part. IMHO

but recalls don't last forever. I believe there is a window that the work needs to be done in. just not sure how long that is.

If Yamaha gets in there, see there is no tang washer(or whatever was from the factory), and see that the parts have been previously serviced, they may very well tell you to go pound sand.

I hope they're helpful and get you taken care of, but they're likely also out to save as much money as they can by not taking the blame.

Hey Gal, glad it's an easy fix and that a recall may take care of it. About the loctite stuff, I was doing my chain and sprocket last year and could NOT for the life of me, get the front sprocket 'nut off'. I was about 15k mi. into my old chain and sprocket set. I used impact gun, breaker bar while standing on it, heating it up, just about everything but smacking it with the kitchen sink! I am not well versed on the Yamaha's but I know my manual says to use "anti-seize" on the threads to prevent them from locking it on there (apparently some bikes are reverse threaded so that they tighten as you hit the gas and others are not) Long story short, I didn't want to F it up so I got in contact with a tech and he helped me out. I thought, maybe there's a trick or tool and I am just not privy to this. Until I got a phone call saying "You weren't lying man, this thing is ON there", the only conclusion we came up with was that the last time I had it replaced (by a Kawasaki shop) they did not put the anti-seize on the bolt. My tech had to CUT the bolt off section by section. Had I known that I would have done it myself but then I wouldn't have met a really cool tech! I would definitely look into downloading a service manual or just purchasing a hard copy, they come in handy, especially if you like turning your own wrench. Hope you get good news from the shop.

^^^ this is correct.
If I may jump in here... there is some info being suggested that is not correct, to the best of my knowledge.
You should not need to apply ANY color locktite to the threads of the countershaft. The nut should be torqued to specs with a little anti-seize on the threads and the tang nut or other positive safety device, should be properly secured.
If you use locktite, it is very likely that, down the road you will need to use heat to remove the nut. Probably a LOT of heat.
That is very likely to damage the countershaft seal, which could start leaking and, on most bikes, will require the removal of the engine case to replace. You don't want to split the cases, because you overheated a seal.
There is a reason the factory uses positive safety devices, like tang washers, they work and don't need locktite as a backup.
I would always recommend that if anyone reading this intends to work on their own bike, they should buy a service manual and follow it the best they can. Ask questions, if you have to deviate from it.
The mfr's know what they are doing and have a reason why they make service manuals. Please don't rely solely on internet advice, even mine, as people will suggest things they know little about and encourage others to do things they shouldn't.
