Yamaha R1 R1Ms recalled over fire risk

Potentially faulty oil delivery pipe Oring to blame

Yamaha R1 R1Ms recalled over fire risk

A BATCH of 146 Yamaha R1 and R1Ms is being recalled in the UK over the possible risk of fire due to a faulty oil delivery pipe O-ring that could cause oil to leak on to the exhaust.

The description on the fault of the VOSA website is listed as:

‘It is possible for an oil leak to occur, from the O-Ring on the Oil Delivery Pipe where it enters the engine case, because of improper assembly of the components. If a leak occurs, oil could leak onto the exhaust and in extreme circumstances the oil could catch fire.’

VOSA has advised Yamaha to recall the machines that are likely to be affected and replace the oil delivery pipe O-ring.
