What’s the Problem?
This NHTSA Recall began on Jan. 13, 2021, and affects the following Yamaha motorcycles:
- 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)
These motorcycles were sold with a front brake switch that can fail due to increased resistance from silicon oxide, NHTSA said. This problem can cause the brake light to stay on constantly and/or the cruise control system to shutoff without warning. Both situations increases the risk of a crash.
If you purchased a motorcycle that is affected by this recall, you should contact your local Yamaha dealer to schedule a free repair. “Note: Owners are advised not to operate their motorcycle until the repairs have been performed,” NHTSA said.
Yamaha’s number for this recall is 990140.
