Bill I hope this re call does not hurt 2021 sales. If Yamaha re calls the 6 speeds in the USA..... sigh.Because they recalled 976 bikes? I wouldn't think that'd have any effect on sales. No coffin to put nails into. I see more these days than I've ever seen before. When bought my first fjr, it was rare to randomly encounter another. Not so much any more.
Curious ... I just checked the Yamaha Canada website (https://www.yamaha-motor.ca/en/vehicle-status-2) ... input VIN and PCode ... and website said there were no recalls on my FJR. The site showed correct info about YES status and expiry date, so I'm inclined to believe it.This is not going to be good for sales this year, makes me wonder if this is last nail in FJR coffin.
Those countries all ride / drive on the right. Here in the UK we have left hand drive models as we ride / drive on the left. I have not heard anything from Yamaha so presumably the left hand drive models are OK.Canada, Germany, and Holland only so far. It also addresses the auto-clutch models of 2020 (maybe other years) so, again, not a model imported into the US for a while now.
There are LHD motorcycles? I'd never heard of such a thing in modern motorcycles. What is the difference to a RHD motorcycle?Those countries all ride / drive on the right. Here in the UK we have left hand drive models as we ride / drive on the left. I have not heard anything from Yamaha so presumably the left hand drive models are OK.
Glad your FJR is not included. One member posted maybe a production run of gears were faulty ( Germany etc) and this does not effect the USA.
