Motorcycle Consumer News-January 2012-Yamaha is recalling certain model 2009-2012 XVS95/CT motorcycles, manufactured from October 2008 through August 2011 and model year 2007 XVS1300/CT motorcycles, manufactured from August 2006 through March 2007. There may not be a proper seal between the fuel pipes for the fuel injectors and the fuel hose that connects them due to an improperly molded fuel hose. Over time, pressurized fuel can begin leaking at the hose connection points, which could result in a fire hazard. Yamaha will notify owners and dealers will replace the fuel delivery pipe free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before November 11, 2011.

Yamaha is recalling certain model year 2012 XTZ12B/BC motorcycles, manufactured from June 1, 2011, through August 31, 2011. During the assembly process, the fuel pump O-ring may have been installed incorrectly in its groove. If the tabs located around the inner circumference of the O-ring were not seated into the groove properly during pump installation, the O-ring sealing lip could be pinched and damaged, preventing proper sealing. This could allow fuel to leak from around the fuel pump mounted under the fuel tank. Leaking fuel could result in a fire hazard. Yamaha dealers will replace the fuel pump O-ring free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during November 2011. Owners may contact Yamaha at 800-962-7926. NHTSA campaign ID number: 11V532000.
