Yamaha Tricity recalled on stalling

The official recall notice was issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commissions.

It says the problem is caused by a primary fixed sheave nut that may loosen while riding due to inadequate tightening torque:

If the nut loosens off, the primary sheave may contact the crank case cover, causing noise from the engine assembly and possible engine stalling. Engine stalling during riding may cause loss of control of the scooter, posing an accident risk to the rider.

Affected owners of Tricity scooters should contact their nearest Yamaha dealer to arrange an inspection and repair.Tricity scooter

A list of vehicle identification numbers (VIN) of the affected Tricity scooters is published at the end of this article.

If you no longer own the scooter, Yamaha Motor Australia has asked you to contact them.

For help finding a Yamaha dealer consumers can go to their website or call 1300 593 600.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Recall notices are issued by the manufacturer through a voluntary industry code under the ACCC.

Despite hundreds of recalls by various automotive manufacturers, none has ever been mandatory.  All have been issued by the manufacturer.

While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
