Recall for 2006-2009 Yamaha FJR1300
Yamaha is recalling certain 2006-2009 FJR1300 sport-tourers due to a problem with the electrical system.
According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the ground joint connector of the wire harness on some Yamaha FJR1300 models may overheat and become deformed. If the electrical system is not properly grounded, the motorcycle’s electric components including the ignition system may malfunction, potentially causing the engine to stall.
Yamaha dealers will install an additional wire sub-lead on affected motorcycles. For units with ground joint connectors already showing signs of damage from overheating, Yamaha dealers will install a new main wire harness. The recall affects 9,850 units.
