Defect Summary
Yamaha is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 FJR1300 motorcycles manufactured from February 2006, through March 2009. The ground joint connector of the wire harness could overheat and become deformed, possibly causing an intermittent ground wire connection. If the electrical system is not properly grounded, the ignition system and/or other electrical components could malfunction, which could cause the engine to stall.
Consequence Summary
If the motorcycle stalls while being ridden, there could be a crash resulting in injury or death.
Corrective Summary
Yamaha dealers will install an additional wire sub-lead or, if the ground joint connector has already been damaged from overheating, dealers will install a new main wire harness. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during July 2011. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.
