What is the defect?
In some situations, the standing assist system may not release immediately after deactivation. It has been identified that the current modification has not fully eliminated the release issue with the stand assist system.

What are the hazards?
If the stand assist does not release immediately, it may prevent the rider from steering, causing loss of control resulting in the rider or passenger being injured.

What is the remedy?
As an interim measure Yamaha requests, you attend your nominated Yamaha dealer to have your stand assist function manually deactivated free of charge. Notification will be supplied when an appropriate solution is available.

What should customers do?
Consumers are requested to contact your local Yamaha Dealer to set up an appointment to have this recall carried out free of charge.

Find your nearest dealer now or contact Yamaha Motor New Zealand on 09 265 6500.
