Yamaha Motor Corporation has issued a recall for certain 2006-2009 FJR1300 model motorcycles that may experience engine stall from the improper grounding of the electrical wires.
Approximately 9,850 motorcycles are included in the recall and were manufactured from February 2006 to March 2009. The recalled motorcycles contain a ground joint connector in the wire harness that may overheat and become deformed. This deformation may cause an intermittent ground wire connection of the electrical system. An improperly grounded electrical system may lead to the malfunction of the ignition system and/ or other electrical components and may possibly result in the engine stalling.
If the engine of the motorcycle stalls during operation, there is an associated increased risk of an accident that may result in the injury or death of the motorcyclist.
Customers are encouraged to contact the nearest Yamaha dealership for necessary repairs free of charge. The Yamaha dealer will inspect the ground joint connector and, if no damage is observed, install an additional wire-sub-lead. If there is overheating damage to the ground joint connector, the Yamaha dealer will install a new main wire harness.
Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7962 for more information.
