Yamaha has sent out recall notices to owners of the MT-09, R6 and Super Tenere because it has identified a problem with the gear shift cam segment stopper which may develop a fatigue crack.
Here’s the actual wording from Yamaha:
As part of Yamaha’s policy of constantly monitoring the quality and performance of its products,
we regret to announce that the factory has identified a potential defect with your machine
whereby, under certain circumstances, after continued operation, the gear shift cam segment
stopper may start to develop a fatigue crack which in the extreme may eventually hinder gear
We would therefore advise you to contact your authorised Yamaha dealer at your earliest
convenience, quoting your machine’s Chassis Number and current mileage, to arrange a mutually
convenient appointment for them to replace the Gear Shift Shaft with a new remedial part.
The work will of course be carried out free of charge.
We apologise for any inconvenience this recall may cause.
Yamaha goes on to say that if you have one of the machines and need to contact them you can on 01932 358026 or 358042, during office hours (9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. Mon – Fri).
