Yamaha recalls 3,493 units of the MT-07 And XSR700 in the US

Updated December 4, 2018

3,493 units of the 2018 version of the Yamaha MT-07 and XSR700 models have been recalled because of the Loose Chain Guard in the US. The company stated that the chain guards attached to the swingarms would become loose over time. Yamaha has not yet recalled the MT-07’s predecessor and the FZ-07 despite it having the same swingarm design.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(NHTSA) released a document stating that the bolt connecting the swingarm to the chain guard may shake loose due to the vibrations caused while riding the bike through rough terrain. This vibration would potentially cause the bolt to completely detach and then contact the drive chain and break.

The problem first came into notice when Yamaha Motor Corp. USA’s parent company in Japan identified the issue during a quality control review while testing the models to be exported overseas.

The chain guards and the fastening bolts would be replaced by the dealers for the recalled models.

About Safet Satara

I do not have spare time. All there is is car time. 12 years and counting. I am a Central European gearhead, but you are probably thinking - aaa a disposable Borg drone! Well, actually, I like to dress up like James Bond too. The only thing I need to be him is an Aston Martin (and I love DBS more than DB5 because, reasons). That's something I guess.
