What's the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2018-2021 Yamaha XV19 (Star Venture)
- 2018-2020 Yamaha MTT9GT (Tracer GT)
- 2019 Yamaha MXTGTKL (NIKEN GT)
- 2017-2020 Yamaha MT10
- 2018-2020 Yamaha XTZ12 (Super Ténéré)
- 2013-2020 Yamaha FJR13
- 2018 Yamaha XV19B (Star Eluder)
The front brake switch on the above motorcycles can fail due to increased resistance from silicon oxide, causing the brake light to stay on constantly and/or the cruise control system to shutoff unexpectedly. "Both situations increases the risk of a crash," NHTSA said.
Yamaha is notifying owners and dealers will replace the front brake switch, free of charge.
This recall began on January 13, 2021.
