SAFETY RECALL CAMPAIGN – 2006-2010 YZF-R6 Motorcycles – FACTORY MODIFICATION CAMPAIGN – Front Side Reflectors

What is the reason for this notice?

Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. has decided that certain 2006~2010 YZF-R6 model motorcycles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

What is the problem?


In affected motorcycles, the front side reflector height does not meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard §571.108. This standard specifies that the center point of front side reflectors on a vehicle must be located between 381mm and 1524mm from the ground. The reflector center point on 2006~2010 YZF-R6 models is 358mm, which is too low and could increase the risk of a crash.
