April 09, 2015

Yamaha is recalling about 4,900 motorcycles for an incorrectly manufactured transmission.

Certain model year 2015 FJ-09 (FJ09F/FC), FZ-09 (FZ09F/FC), FZ6R (FZ6RF/FC), Super Tenere (XTZ12F/FC), Super Tenere ES (XTZ12EF/EFC), and R6 (YZF-R6) motorcycles may have an incorrectly manufactured shift cam segment stopper, which has a sharp edge on the inside of the bend instead of a smooth radius.

As a result, the stopper can crack and possibly fracture at this sharp edge, keeping the transmission from shifty properly.

Yamaha will notify owners affected by the recall, and dealers will replace the shift shaft assembly with a new one, free of charge.

For more information, owners can contact Yamaha customer service at 1-800-962-7926.
