Yamaha recalls learners over breaking brakes

Yamaha MT-03 masters of torque noisy leaks breaking

The official recall notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says that when “strong gripping force is applied to the front brake lever, it may break”.

“If the front brake lever breaks while the motorcycle is being ridden, the rider will lose all brake functionality at the front of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of an accident and serious injury to the rider and other road users,” the notice says.

Owners of affected motorcycles should contact their local Yamaha Dealer to arrange an inspection and have the brake lever replaced, where required.

The vehicle identification of all 124 affected bikes are listed at the end of this article.

The models have now been recalled seven times.

They include issues such as radiator leaks, gear shift problems, noisy gears, engine vibrations, fuel leaks, loss of electrical power, engine stalling and clutch failures.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
