Yamaha Recalls Motorcycles for Corrosion

By Staff Writer October 31, 2018

Yamaha Motor Corp. USA is recalling 4,736 2012-13 Yamaha XTZ12 Super Tenere motorcycles.


Over time, a gap may develop in the protective sealant where the lead wires of the accelerator position sensor (APS) and throttle position sensor (TPS) connect to the electronic control unit (ECU). This may cause corrosion on the wires, preventing the engine from returning to idle after the throttle is released.


Yamaha will notify owners, and dealers will bypass the wire lead connection with a new sub lead harness multi-connector, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October.
Yamaha's number for this recall is 990122.
