Recall Details

On certain motorcycles equipped with a Yamaha accessory ” Fat Double-T” handlebar (part number STR-4WM75-12-00), due to a manufacturing error, the bars may have tubing thinner than designed where the bars narrow for the switch housings and grips. The affected handlebars could be weak enough in this area to break. If breakage occurs while the motorcycle is being ridden, the operator could lose control of the motorcycle which could result in a crash with injury or death. Correction: Authorized dealers will remove the affected handlebar and replace it with a new one that has the correct tube thickness.
