Yamaha WR250X & WR250R Recall | Faulty Charging System
2013 Yamaha WR250R

Yamaha has recalled 12,721 of its 2008-2015 WR250R and 2008-2011 WR250X motorcycles due to faulty charging systems. Yamaha reports that due to insufficient heat resistance, the stator coil on the alternator may short out.

If this occurs, the affected WR250R and WR250X motorcycles’ batteries will not charge. If the battery dies, this can cause stalling, which increases the risk of a crash.

Yamaha says the WR250X motorcycles were manufactured June 1, 2008, to June 1, 2011 and WR250R motorcycles manufactured June 1, 2008, to June 1, 2015.

Yamaha says it will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stator coil with one that has sufficient heat resistance, free of charge. Owners may contact Yamaha customer service at 1-800-962-7926.

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.
