Hong Leong Yamaha Motors has initiated a recall for the 2019 Yamaha YZF-R25 and Yamaha XMAX.

The recall involves replacing the brake lever as a safety precaution. The decision was made by Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd. (i.e. Yamaha Japan). The campaign first began in the United States when dealers found a number of levers of the YZF-R3 snapping during hard braking.

Brittleness is usually associated with the presence of impurities in the metal during the casting process.

The Malaysian recall campaign will commence from mid-July onwards by region. Hong Leong Yamaha will strive to contact the owners of the affected bikes.

In the meantime, please refer to the table below for the range of chassis numbers involved.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
