Yamahas recalled on faulty brake switch

The official recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the faulty brake switch could “inhibit the cruise control and constantly illuminate the rear brake lights”.

“If the rear brake lights constantly illuminate, other road users will not know if the brakes are applied, increasing the risk of an accident or injury or death to the rider(s) and/or other road users.”

Owners of affected motorcycles should contact a Yamaha Dealer to arrange an appointment to have the brake switch replaced, free of charge.

Consumers can find their nearest authorised Yamaha dealership by visiting: https://www.yamaha-motor.com.au

For further information, contact Yamaha by phone on 1300 593 600.
