Yamaha Recalls 2014 YZF-R6 Motorcycles For Possible Wheel Defect

The following report is filed with the NHTSA:

Report Receipt Date: October 14, 2014
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V644000
Component(s): Wheels
Potential Number of Units Affected: n/a
Manufacturer: Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA

THE RECALL: Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. (Yamaha) is recalling certain model year 2014 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycles manufactured from August 1, 2014 to September 1, 2014. The front and rear wheels of the affected motorcycles may have been manufactured with insufficient hardness.

WHAT COULD HAPPEN: If the wheels have insufficient hardness, the wheels may loosen and/or air may leak from around the tire bead. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
