2015 Yamaha YZ250F Recall

Yamaha has recalled around 875 of its 2015 YZ250F off-road motocross motorcycles (model numbers YZ250FFL and YZ250FFW) due to possible engine lock up.

If this occurs during operation, the rider can lose control of the YZ250F and crash, resulting in injuries and possible death. As of this writing, no injuries were reported.

The YZ250F motorcycles were sold at dealers nationwide from May 2014 through November 2014 for about $7,600.

The recall was issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, who says the recalled motorcycles are blue and white, and white and red. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is stamped on the frame near the steering stem. The letter F in the 10th position of the VIN number indicates that the unit was made in the 2015 model year.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled motorcycles and contact their local Yamaha dealer to schedule a free repair. Yamaha is also contacting all registered owners directly.

Consumers may contact Yamaha at (800) 962-7926 anytime or online at yamahamotorsports.com and under the Sport tab, subcategory Motorcycles-Off-Road, click on Parts and Service, then Factory Modification Campaigns, then Customer Letter M2014-020R for more information.
