Yamaha R1M hit by Ohlins recall

Rear shock could come apart during use

Yamaha R1M hit by Ohlins recall

YAMAHA is recalling the new R1M over a faulty Ohlins rear shock which could come apart during use.

A statement published by Transport Canada and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, said: ‘On certain motorcycles, the rear shock absorber may not have been manufactured correctly. The piston rod nut may have been tightened before the piston had the correct full metal-to-metal contact. This could result in the nut loosening, which would prevent proper rear suspension action, and could cause poor handling that may result in a crash,’

The recall affects both stock and aftermarket TTX36, TTX GP, TTX RT and TTX36 MKII units produced from November 9, 2013 to February 20, 2015.

Yamaha dealers will inspect the shock and, if necessary, replace the unit free of charge.
