What are the defects?
A possibility exists for the throttle linkage to drag due to defective bushes. This causes the throttle linkage on the engine not to return fully to the idle speed position after operating at cruising speeds.
What should consumers do?
Please contact your nearest Yamaha Outboard Dealer as soon as possible and arrange to have the new parts installed at no cost. Your nearest Yamaha Outboard Dealer can be located at www.yamaha-motor.com.au
Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is the responsible regulator for this recall.
