Yamaha Motorcycle Recall

Yamaha is recalling 2011 FJR 1300 motorcycles due to brake-lever issues; 260 units are affected.

Yamaha says the brake lights on the 2011 FJR motorcycles manufactured from January 2011 through April 2011 may not illuminate when the front-brake lever is applied due to the activating mechanism in the front brake switch binding.

When the FJR motorcycle operator applies only the front brake, the brake light may not come on to alert other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will install a new front-brake switch free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during July, 2011. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.gov.
