    Handle bar recall 4.7.2017

    https://ultimatemotorcycling.com/201...dlebar-issues/

    Yamaha has recalled certain-model 2015-2017 FJ-09, FZ-09, and XSR900 motorcycles because a painting issue and the inadequate application of the thread-locking agent that may cause the lower handlebar holder to loosen.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announcement states, “If the handlebars are not properly secured to the motorcycle, a loss of vehicle control may result, increasing the risk of a crash.”

    The recall affects 22,433 units in all manufactured between Aug. 01, 2013 and Jan. 31, 2017. The Vehicle Identification Number ranges are as follows:

    VIN Range 1 : Begin : JYARN33E0EA000014 End : JYARN33EXGA012044 Not sequential
    VIN Range 2 : Begin : JYARN33Y0EA000024 End : JYARN33YXGA003340 Not sequential
    VIN Range 3 : Begin : JYARN37E0FA000008 End : JYARN37EXHA003582 Not sequential
    VIN Range 4 : Begin : JYARN37Y0FA000018 End : JYARN37YXHA001180 Not sequential
    VIN Range 5 : Begin : JYARN47E0GA000002 End : JYARN47EXHA001840 Not sequential
    VIN Range 6 : Begin : JYARN47Y0GA000009 End : JYARN53YXHA000306 Not sequential
    The Safety Recall Report states:

    “In affected motorcycles, the lower handlebar holder may have been painted improperly during manufacturing. Additionally, the stud bolt threads of the lower handlebar holder may not have had adequate thread-locking agent applied. As a result, if a strong external impact is applied to the handlebar, the paint on the bottom of the lower handlebar holder may be damaged. Over time, the paint can wear off, creating clearance that allows the stud bolt to loosen due to engine vibration. If the stud loosens or falls off, the handlebar holder may come loose from the handle crown, causing loss of control that could result in a crash with injury or death.”

    Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will replace the lower handlebar holder, free of charge. All affected units will be modified at no cost to the consumer regardless of warranty status. The recall is expected to begin in April 2017. Owners may contact Yamaha customer service at 1-800-962-7926. Yamaha’s number for this recall is 990114.

    The NHTSA Campaign Number is 17V221000. Owners may also contact the Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

    Not really, this is details and confirmation previous reports were speculation.

    Please don't spread poison comments

    And the repost was a move, pay attention.

    The real official recall report is here: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/201...7V221-6262.pdf

    Which was posted here: Recall on Yamaha Triples

    Best is to go to the actual source and some second had source.

    And as I stated on that other thread.

    If you go to the end of the report, it looks like nothing is going to be done until April.

    Planned Dealer Notification Date : APR 05, 2017 - APR 10, 2017
    Planned Owner Notification Date : APR 05, 2017 - APR 10, 2017


    As of today, there is still no official recall listed on either site:

    Transport Canada: http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/....aspx?lang=eng

    NHTSA US: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls#vehicle

    I am sure Yamaha will be issuing a recall letter in the mail soon.
    Ride to work, work to ride.

    Me too! It's going in on the 25th anyway to change the exhaust under warranty so no real hassle.
