R3 Recall for Defective Triple Clamp

Yamaha just announced a recall concerning a defective upper triple clamp. This is a continuation of the recall in Australia back in August. Dealers can be contacted to see if your R3 is one of the 16 or you can wait and see if you get a recall notice in the mail or via email.

This only affects 16 R3s so far, but these recalls can expand sometimes.....

Wonder if your bike is being recalled, do they provide a free loaner bike while yours is being repaired?

You would have checked and written it into the VIN number box on Page 10-1 of your owners manual.


And your dealer would have written it on page 1 of the Service and warranty booklet.

It's etched into the subframe under the passenger seat. The engine number is NOT the same - don't know what else they use these engines for. Page 10-1 of the manual has the blanks for you to write down all the relevant numbers, including the key tag number and "Model Label Information" which I have no idea what that's about.


Also it would be on your insurance cards and your title.



(And, not that it's an excuse for not looking in the manual before asking on a forum ... my dealer didn't even write the VIN number on the bill of sale, which made me awfully nervous about riding around before the title came and I got the plate switched over! But, small town, small dealership, they'd only gotten the bike in and prepped it the day before, and I was giving very strong signals about this isn't even remotely my first bike and can we get the paperwork over so I can go ride it. )

If you stand at the front of the bike on the muffler side and look down below the triple clamp, you'll see this label:
