Defect Summary
Yamaha is recalling certain model year 2012 XTZ12B/BC (Super Tenere) motorcycles, manufactured from June 01, 2011, through August 31, 2011. During the assembly process, the fuel pump o-ring may have been installed incorrectly in its groove. If the tabs located around the inner circumference of the o-ring were not seated into the groove properly during pump installation, the o-ring sealing lip could be pinched and damaged, preventing proper sealing.
Consequence Summary
This could allow fuel to leak from around the fuel pump mounted under the fuel tank. Leaking fuel could result in a fire hazard.
Corrective Summary
Yamaha dealers will replace the fuel pump o-ring free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during November 2011. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.
