Yamaha issues recall for certain 2011 models

September 26, 2013

Manufacturer: Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA

SUMMARY:

Yamaha is recalling certain model year 2011 XC50A (Vino Classic) motorcycles manufactured from April 2011 through August 2011. Due to improper adhesion, the brake shoe linings may separate from the front and rear brake shoes.

CONSEQUENCE:

If the brake shoe linings separate, the brake performance could be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:

Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front and rear brake shoes, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early October 2013. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.

NOTES:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
