Yamaha recall MT models

1 of 1

Yamaha have recalled a number of their triples to address a production fault that could make the handlebars come loose.

The recall affects the MT-09 based models and includes both the XSR 900 and MT-09 Tracer variants of the machine.


A statement on the government recall website reads, “The lower handlebar holder may have been manufactured with improper painting instruction and thread locking agent may not have been adequately applied to the stud bolt thread of the lower handlebar holder. Due to this, the stud bolt may loosen and fall off from engine vibration resulting in loss of control.”

Contact your local Yamaha dealer to find out if you have one of the bikes affected.
