Motorcycle Recall - Yamaha

NHTSA Campaign ID:  06V442000
Component:  Vehicle Speed Control
Manufacturer:  Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA
Recall Date: 10/27/2006
Potential Number of Units Affected: 13,000
Defect Summary:
On certain motorcycles, the air filter mounting screws may come loose and fall out.
Consequence Summary:
If the screws fall out, they could get caught in the throttle valve which could prevent the operator from reducing engine speed properly. This could result in a loss of control and a vehicle crash with injury or death.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will replace the air filter element with a new one that is designed to hold the screws securely free of charge. The recall is expected to begin at the end of November 2006. Owners may contact Yamaha at 714-761-7842.
