2015 Yamaha FZ-07 Recalls Due to Battery-Cable Issues2015 Yamaha FZ-07 Recalls

Yamaha has recalled 3,100 of its 2015 FZ-07 motorcycles due to battery-cable issues.

Yamaha says the effected FZ-07 models were manufactured from May 1, 2014 to Sept. 30, 2014. On the effected bikes, the positive battery cable may become pinched between the seat base and seat bracket.

If this happens, it may chafe or short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.

Yamaha has notified owners, and dealers will replace the positive battery cable and seat bracket, free of charge. The recall began in early November 2014. Owners may contact Yamaha customer service at 1-800-962-7926. Yamaha’s number for this recall is 990089.

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