Yamaha recall R3 over brake fault

2019 Yamaha YZF-R3 fault

Yamaha Motor Australia has issued an immediate safety recall of its learner-approved 2019 YZF-R3A over a fault with the front brake hose.

The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the bracket supporting the front brake hose may dislodge.

It says this could cause “friction between the brake hose and the front fork, resulting in brake fluid loss”.

“If the brake system loses fluid, the effectiveness of the brakes decreases, increasing the risk of an accident causing serious injury to the rider and other road users,” the notice says.

Owners should “immediately” contact their local Yamaha Dealer and arrange to have a replacement brake hose bracket fitted at no charge.

This LAMS model has now been recalled over 10 fault issues since 2015.

Issues include such as radiator leaks, gear shift problems, noisy gears, engine vibrations, fuel leaks, loss of electrical power, engine stalling, clutch failures and handlebar crown cracking.

It is also the second recall from Yamaha this week after a fault with their 2017-19 XP530A scooter stands.

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
