Crash Risk Prompts Yamaha to Recall 3,900 Bolt Motorcycles

Bolt motorcycles of the 2014 model year are being recalled by the Yamaha Motor Company due to a problem that could find the wiring harness sagging or experiencing excessive slack.  3,900 vehicles are potentially impacted by the issue, which could see the wires in the aforementioned harness melting if the slack is sufficient so as to allow the component to touch the exhaust manifest.  This could cause a short circuit which may lead to a blown fuse.  A stalling engine then becomes a possibility along with the attendant crash threat that poses.  The recall should start by month’s end, so owners should be on the lookout for a notification.  Dealers will initiate free repairs once the motorcycles are brought in.
