Yamaha issues recall on MT-09 and others

1662

Apparently there is a recall on the Yamaha MT-09, Super Tenere and YZF-R6. This is because there is a fault with the transmission system which leaves riders unable to select gears.

The recall is happening in the UK and according to Britain’s Vehicle and Operator Services Agency, the ‘transmission may fail’ as a result of a fatigue crack to an internal component.

A notice on VOSA’s recall database says: ‘The gear shift cam segment stopper may develop a fatigue crack. If not identified, this could result in the inability of the rider to select gears.’

The recall is said to affect a small batch of 2015 models.

Though it is highly unlikely, it is not immediately clear if Malaysian bikes are affected, the VOSA however did provide the start and end of the VIN number of affected bikes, so check your VIN number, and if it similar to the numbers stated below, it would be best for you to visit your mechanic.
