R3Recall

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.
