Is My Yamaha Safe To Ride?

Yamaha is recalling 24,000 motorcycles, including YZF-R1s produced from 2009-2013 and Super Tenere XTZ12s produced from 2012-2013. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), “[a]headlight failure reduces the rider’s ability to see clearly and the motorcycle’s visibility to oncoming traffic, increasing the risk of a crash.” The headlights are failing because the bulbs are overheating and causing arcing within the bulb, which can melt the bulb apparatus. If you own an effected motorcycle, it is imperative that you replace your headlights as soon as possible, because lack of visibility is a common cause of motorcycle accidents.
