Intent to Recall - lower handlebar holder issue


Recommended Posts

2015 - 2017 FJ-09
2014 - 2017 FZ-09
2016 - 2017 XSR900
Issue: Lower handlebar holder may have been painted improperly during manufacturing. Additionally, the stud bold threads of the lower handlebar holder may not have had adequate thread-locking agent applied.
As a result, if a strong external impact is applied to the handlebar, the paint on the bottom of the lower handlebar holder may be damaged. Over time, the paint can wear off, creating clearance that allows the stud bolt to loosen due to engine vibration. If the stud loosens of falls off, the handlebar holder may come loose from the handle crown, causing loss of control.
There's not much more information and nothing on the exact VIN's affected. I couldn't find anything about it on the internet as of yet. Has anyone heard of this and have any addition information on it?

I know that these recalls are probably written by lawyers who are trying their best to minimize the companies liability for a falty product, and leaving the consumer baffled at the same time is no doubt part of their plan, but i have to say that this one really takes the cake.

there is nothing in the UK site http://www.dft.gov.uk/vosa/apps/recalls/default.asp?tx= but my EU model is a JYARN29F and not included in that list above so maybe it is only a batch of bikes destined for elsewhere. It's most likely a batch of x thousand subassemblies made in China that were not inspected properly.
This signature is left blank as the poster writes enough pretentious bollocks as it is.

The recall has started in the UK, whilst speaking with my dealer today I asked if they knew of the recall, a few minutes later a claim had been lodged.
Not seen any info regarding the recall on any website DVSA/Yamaha ...

Looks like my bike isn't affected, as it doesn't actually exist.  
"An error occurred with your request. Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA does not recognize your VIN. Please contact Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA by phone at 1-800-962-7926 or go to their website http://www.yamaha-motor.com/ for recall information about your vehicle."
Mine does the same everywhere I search for it.  It doesn't seem to be within the range of VINs posted either.
