Update: Yamaha Recalls MT-09, Tracer 9 GT Motorcycles for Engine Stall Problem

Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. has issued a recall for certain 2021 and 2022 models MT09M/MC/N/NC (MT-09), MT09SPM/MC/N/NC (MT-09 SP), and MTT9GTM/MC/N/NC (Tracer 9 GT) motorcycles.

Due to improper ECU programming in the recalled motorcycles, the engine could stall if the clutch lever was not fully pulled in during downshifting or if the throttle was opened just slightly from idle.

Additionally, throttle response could be limited if the throttle was closed fully during deceleration, a condition that would be accompanied by the engine trouble warning light coming on.

In another situation, the engine trouble warning light may not come on at all to alert the operator if an actual component or system error exists. Any of these conditions could result in loss of control and a crash with severe injury or death. To correct this defect, Yamaha has initiated a Factory Modification Campaign.

This recall began on March 17, 2022.

What’s the Problem?

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, is recalling certain motorcycles over a potential defect that could cause a loss of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash and serious bodily harm, including death.

This recall affects Yamaha YZF-R3 motorcycles from the model year 2019, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The front brake hose on affected motorcycles may chafe against the horn lead wire when the handlebars are turned from left to right, potentially resulting in a brake fluid leak, NHTSA said. A brake fluid leak can reduce braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash.

Yamaha is notifying owners and dealers will fix the problem, free of charge. This recall began on February 28, 2020.

Yamaha XV250 Recall

Yamaha is recalling XV250 motorcycles for a potentially defective oil passageway in the engine side cover which could block lubricating oil to the engine. Improper lubrication of internal engine components can result in the engine stalling, increasing the risk of a crash. This recall began on April 17, 2020.

Yamaha FJR1300 Recalled for Transmission Defect, Crash Risk

Yamaha is recalling the following motorcycles which were manufactured with potentially defective transmissions that can break under high speeds:

  • 2016-2020 Yamaha FJR13A
  • 2016-2020 Yamaha FJR13AE

The second gear of the transmission on these motorcycles can crack and break under high speed loads, causing the transmission and rear wheel to lock, increasing the risk of a crash. This recall began on Jan. 13, 2021.
