    MT-07 Recalls and Service bulletins

    A recall is going to be issued for some MT-07's due to the positive
    battery lead being to short and a problem with a seat bracket.

    Yamaha recalls MT-07 for potential fire risk caused by defective electrical wiring

    Think mine is one of them.

    Who would invent a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

    'The targets of this recall are the 1,818 units of the MT-07 and the MT-07A that were manufactured from June 3 to September 23, 2014'.

    Luckily mine was before then.

    Makes you wonder what and why something changed from Ok to not Ok and then back again?

    Hope mine isn't one of them as a recall would mean I'd have to re fit the original exhaust and tail light assembly, before I took it in, to avoid possible warranty issues.

    I suppose they buy in batches a batch comes in slightly short no one notices,
    they don't connect the battery at the factory they run it with a auxiliary battery
    hooked down the swinging arm the dealer connects the battery

    Shorter wire is the cheaper wire. Too short wire gets more expensive.

    It seems sales are on hold in the US at the moment most likely due to this issue.
    Looked at mine and the lead is on the short side and routed a bit strangely though
    I cant see it being a problem.

    I get a plastic smell coming from my bike after a ride that may be this issue. Oh well, as long as my butt doesn't catch on fire, I guess I'll wait it out.

    Weirdly enough, my dealer (here in the Netherlands) didn't know anything about a MT-07 recall when I asked him about it today.. Guess it takes some time before it's known worldwide?
