Yamaha’s New R1 Recalled

December 3 2015

Yamaha’s flagship model, the 2016 YZF-R1 has been recalled due to possible failures within the transmission.

Recall #2015559

Manufacturer Recall# M15-126

Units Affected: 240

Recall Details
On certain motorcycles, the second gear wheel and the pinion gears in the transmission may be of inadequate strength. In high stress cases, this could cause internal components in the transmission to deform or break. If gears were to fail, the transmission could lock up, which would also cause the rear wheel to lock up. This could result in loss of control and/or a crash, increasing the risk of injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will replace the transmission assembly with one that includes gears of a different design.
