Recall for 2009-2011 Yamaha V-Max
Yamaha is issuing a recall campaign on certain 2009-2011 V-Max power cruisers due to a potential risk of oil pump malfunction.
According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, abnormally high oil pressure can build up within the oil pump of certain Yamaha V-Max models. The high pressure may force the washer on the oil pump shaft against the oil pump housing, causing oil to stop pumping through the engine.
Yamaha dealers will replace the oil pump with a new unit at no charge. The work can be completed without having to drain the engine oil.
The recall campaign affects 2,300 units, all produced between Sept. 2008 and April 2011.
