Recall Yamaha MT09 R6 and Super Tnr

Transmission may fail


The MT-09


YAMAHA is recalling some MT-09s, Super Ténérés and YZF-R6s over a transmission issue which may leave riders unable to select gears.

According to the UK’s Vehicle and Operator Services Agency, the ‘transmission may fail’ as a result of a fatigue crack to an internal component.

A notice on VOSA’s recall database says: ‘The gear shift cam segment stopper may develop a fatigue crack. If not identified, this could result in the inability of the rider to select gears.’

The recall was launched on Tuesday and is thought to affect a relatively small batch of 2015 editions of the MT-09, R6 and Super Ténéré XT1200Z.

According to the notice, the remedy is to 'recall all affected machines to replace the gear shift shaft with a new remedial component'.

VOSA gives the start and end of affected bikes' VIN numbers as follows:

RN296######0009355 to RN296######0010782
RN29F#####0001080 to RN29F######0002551
RN291######0004601 to RN291######0005001
DP041######0001239 to DP041######0001293
DP046######0001835 to DP046######0001873
RJ155######0008385 to RJ155######0008482
