Yamaha Recalls 1,902 SR400 Motorcycles on Oil Leak Problem

Yamaha is recalling 1,902 of certain 2015-2018 Yamaha SR400 motorcycles due to possible oil-leak issues.

Yamaha says the engine oil line flare nut may be insufficiently tightened, allowing oil to leak onto the rear tire increasing risk of loss of control and a crash.
