They could do a recall with a digital boost gauge. There probably already is one available or soon will be.
I was wondering if the telltale needles friction pivot on mine might be holding the boost needle back from showing full boost accurately so I moved the needle clockwise out of the way with the key and did a full throttle acceleration through first and second gear and glanced at the gauge to see.

I have a K27 HFS, and the maximum boost reading on the unrestricted boost needle was exactly the same as when the needle was pushing the telltale needle up with it.

I guess I'm lucky and got a good one, or maybe you just don't hear about the good ones often.
I rarely set it back to zero so it's not going to loosen up the telltale needles pivot bushing any time soon.
