An issue related to the engine head cover bolt has been cited as the reason behind the recall

  • The recall affects 12,620 units of the FZ 25 and 728 units of the Fazer 25.
  • Yamaha says it will contact the owners of the affected bikes individually.
  • The repairs will be carried out at Yamaha’s dealerships free of charge.

As a precautionary measure, Japanese manufacturer Yamaha has issued a recall for the FZ 25 and Fazer 25 in India. The voluntary recall has been announced to resolve issues related to the engine head cover bolt coming loose. According to the company, 13,348 units (12,620 FZ 25 and 728 units of the Fazer 25) have been affected. Owners will be contacted individually and repairs will be carried out free of cost at Yamaha’s authorised dealerships.

To give you a gist of the problem, the issue lies in the cam cover of the engine head, where the gasket and o-ring have to be replaced with new bolts and sealed with an adhesive called Loctite. If these bolts happen to come loose and fall into the engine while running, it could cause engine seizure. So if we were you, we’d take the bike to the nearest Yamaha authorised service centre as soon as possible. The entire procedure doesn’t take more than 10-20 minutes.

On a slightly different note, Yamaha will be launching the BS6-compliant R15 V3.0 and Fascino next month. You can read all about it here.

 

Here’s the official press release from the manufacturer.
