Models Involved: 2011 Yamaha FJR1300

Recall #: 22011247 (Yamaha Safety Recall# M11-042)
Models Involved: 2006-2009 Yamaha FJR1300
Number of Vehicles: 901
Problem: On certain motorcycles, a ground joint connector of the wire harness could overheat, become deformed, and cause an intermittent ground wire connection. If the electrical system is not properly grounded, the ignition system and/or other electrical components could malfunction, which could cause the engine to stall, possibly causing to a crash.
Correction: Dealers will install an additional wire sub-lead; however, if the ground joint connector has already been damaged from overheating, the main wire harness will be replaced.


Honda's ST1300 sport tourer has a recall notice out as well.

Recall #: 2011250
Models Involved: 2008-2010 Honda ST1300
Number of Vehicles: 325
Problem: On certain motorcycles, the brake hose between the remote reservoir and the rear brake master cylinder may contact the swingarm when the vehicle is heavily loaded and ridden over rough surfaces.

Correction: Dealers will replace the rear brake reservoir hose assembly.
