If your V4 Click in bar does not have the small dot as shown in the photo, head into your nearest dealer or contact them and get the release lever changed over. Ozone has been let down with dodgy stainless by a third party supplier, so some of the release levers are rusting which in the long term may cause other issues.

I was checking my bar and it is part of the recall. But I also noticed this corrosion. It doesn't look to be part that is replaced. Doesn't look good to me though.

Ozone, any input?

Stainless does get a "tea" stain. The issue with the release lever has nothing to do with tea stain or rust though. I do not believe that the staining on your loop is an issue. We have been replacing the levers all round Australia and we are seeing more tea stain/rust on bars that are never rinsed in fresh water after each use.
If you still have concerns send me sharp focussed pics of the issue to steve @ ozonekites.com.au

Hmm, from this photo that doesn't look like a tea stain and certainly warrants some attention. I have replaced several of the recall parts for people and none look like this. All the bars were in good shape but they showed some signs of staining or the early development of rust only on the recall part, not on the hook itself.

That rusty loop has been replaced. Good customer service from Ozone as always
