Yamaha Motor Australia has recalled its Tricity three-wheeler scooters over a potential for engine 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.
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.
