Yamaha Recalls Select 2015 YZF-R3 Due To Weakened Upper Triple Clamp
Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. has decided
that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in
certain 2015 YZF-R3
motorcycles. In affected motorcycles, the handle crown (upper
triple clamp) could be weakened due to improper casting
temperatures during the manufacturing process. The handle crown
could crack during operation, causing decreased handling stability
that could result in a crash with injury or death. To correct this
defect, Yamaha is initiating a Factory Modification Campaign.
Affected units must have the handle crown replaced with a new one
that was manufactured properly. Because the new handle crown comes
with a main switch already installed, they will also replace the
fuel cap and seat lock so the keys match. Yamaha is notifying all
registered owners of affected motorcycles by mail.
