Reasons the product is recalled

The bush at the end of the throttle control lever may not have been installed properly at the factory. This may cause the bush to come loose and possibly catch on the accelerator cam guide.

The hazards to consumers

In the worst case this may result in a loss of engine speed control.

What consumers should do

Owners of affected motors will be contacted by Yamaha Motor Australia and should contact their local Yamaha Dealer to set up an appointment to have your unit remedied free of charge. The remedy involves removing the bush from the throttle control lever and installing a new bush, using the proper installation procedure.

If you need help finding a Yamaha Dealer in your area, phone 1300 593 600 or visit http://www.yamaha-motor.com.au/
