Yamaha Motor Australia has recalled its new retro XSR700 motorcycles over an electrical issue.
The voluntary safety recall issued through the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission says bikes affected have VIN (Vehicle identification number) 0000101 to 0000441.
“The main switch wire lead is routed near a metal cable guide located on the steering head,” the notice says. “Through normal use, there is a possibility that the wire lead may be worn by the metal guide.
“If the wire lead is worn by the metal guide, this may potentially result in an electrical shortage between the lead and the main frame.”
Consumers will be contacted directly by mail to contact their local Yamaha dealer and arrange for a free repair of their motorcycle.
