Yamaha Australia has recalled their 2020 – 2021 Bolt cruiser (xvs950) due to an issue with oil leaking from the crankcase.
The official government notice blames the manufacturing issue for the leak in the engine crankcase.
It says “oil may leak on to the road and come in contact with the rear tyre”.
“This could result in a loss of control of the vehicle,” the notice says.
“A loss of vehicle control increases the risk of an accident, which may cause injury or death to rider and/or passenger or other road users.
Owners of the 26 affected motorcycles can contact their local Yamaha Dealer to make an appointment to have their model inspected and fixed free of charge.
Here is the VIN list of affected bikes:
Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
