Yamaha Recall 07V147000

NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
07V147000 Vehicle Speed Control: Cables Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA 03/30/2007 8500
Defect Summary
On certain motorcycles, when equipped with a windshield, the throttle cables can kink at the guide bracket located at the steering head when the handlebar is turned all the way to the left. In this position, a kinked cable can cause either a stickly throttle feeling or prevent the throttle from returning to the closed position.
Consequence Summary
If the rider turns the handlebar to the full left lock during a slow-speed maneuver, this sticky/binding throttle feeling could result in reduced vehicle control, which could cause a crash resulting in injury or death.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will replace the guide bracket with a new one that has an additional guide to prevent the throttle cables from kinking. The recall is expected to begin on or about April 12, 2007. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.
