Default Yamaha India recalls 902 units of YZF-R3

Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd. has found a defect which relates to malfunctioning of the clutch assembly and oil pump assembly installed in a batch of YZF-R3 bikes. And hence, the manufacturer's Indian arm has issued a recall in the country, which affects 902 units of the R3 sold in India.

The company has also claimed that there have been no complaints from any of its Indian customers about the said issue. As a result, the aforementioned recall has been issued as a voluntary and preventive measure.

The inspection and needed replacement of the faulty parts would be carried out at Yamaha's authorised dealerships across the country. Cost of the entire process will be borne by the automaker, and thus would be free of cost for the owners.

The authenticity of this message has to be verified as none of the R3 owners, including me have got a recall notice. Neither it is posted in India Yamaha's website, official twitter page. Many owners have already contacted the call center and the service centers. They also do not have any official intimation. I will however update this thread if any of us receive a recall notice.

Not sure about the bike which were sold in India, but Yamaha Japan has definitely issued a recall notice for this series of bikes (R25, R3, MT250, MT320).
