Motorcycle Recall - Yamaha Recall

By Walter Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  14V550000
Manufacturer:  Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA
Recall Date: 09/10/2014
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5300
Defect Summary:
Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA (Yamaha) is recalling certain model year 2014 Yamaha FZ09 motorcycles manufactured August 1, 2013, to August 29, 2014. The affected motorcycles may have a headlight harness that is too short and when the handlebars are turned fully to the left or right the harness may break near the coupler or coupler may disconnect from the headlight bulb.
Consequence Summary:
If the harness breaks or the coupler detaches from the headlight, the headlight will go out, reducing the rider's visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will install a sub-harness to lengthen the headlight harness, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on September 18, 2014. Owners may contact Yamaha customer service at 1-800-962-7926.
