This may cause corrosion on the wires, preventing the engine from returning to idle after the throttle is released, which could increase the risk for a crash.

The recall affects 4,736 of these adventure touring motorcycles.

Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will bypass the wire lead connection with a new sub lead harness multi-connector, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in October 2018. Owners may contact Yamaha customer service at 1-800-962-7926. Yamaha’s number for this recall is 990122.
