Many reports have shown that certain motorcycles are being recalled by Yamaha over crash concerns.
This is important because open recalls may lead to crashes since equipment failure may lead to major consequences.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Yamaha has recalled all units of the 2015 through 2017 FJ-09, FZ-09, and XSR900 motorcycles. These vehicles come with two issues, one that is related to the paint and a second one that is associated with inadequate application of thread-locking agents that may cause the lower handlebar holders to loosen.
If that’s the case, the rider may lose control over the vehicle and it then may crash as a result.
Motorcycle riders should not ignore this recall precisely because it may lead to accidents.
Impacted motorcycles include units manufactured between August 1, 2013 and January 31, 2017. So that the stud bolt threads of the lower handlebar holder may be replaced and any other issue is addressed, consumers will be contacted by Yamaha. The repair will happen entirely for free.
Consumers with the recalled Yamaha motorcycles should be contacted this month. But if you’re not contacted, do not let this issue go by without making sure that it’s addressed in full.
