Yamaha has recalled certain model year 2006-09 FJR 1300 motorcycles. The potential number of units affected is 9,850.
The ground joint connector of the wire harness could overheat and become deformed, possibly causing 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 case the engine to stall.
Yamaha dealers will install an additional sub-lead, or if the ground joint connector has already been damaged from overheating, dealers will install a new main wire harness. The service will be performed free of charge.
