Motorcycle Recall - Yamaha

NHTSA Campaign ID:  11V532000
Component:  Fuel System, Gasoline: Delivery: Fuel Pump
Manufacturer:  Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA
Recall Date: 10/28/2011
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1069
Defect Summary:
Yamaha is recalling certain model year 2012 XTZ12B/BC (Super Tenere) motorcycles, manufactured from June 01, 2011, through August 31, 2011. During the assembly process, the fuel pump o-ring may have been installed incorrectly in its groove. If the tabs located around the inner circumference of the o-ring were not seated into the groove properly during pump installation, the o-ring sealing lip could be pinched and damaged, preventing proper sealing.
Consequence Summary:
This could allow fuel to leak from around the fuel pump mounted under the fuel tank. Leaking fuel could result in a fire hazard.
Corrective Summary:
Yamaha dealers will replace the fuel pump o-ring free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during November 2011. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.
