  • Yamahahahaha 06 R6 Recall

    Aus Gov Recall site here

    ROFL

    Now, I would hope most new R6 owners got informed under their warranty registration, but for us people who own bikes that are screwed together properly at the factory, I thought we could have a bit of a laugh

    Oh and this is not casting stones from a glass house as it took over a year to show up, and wasnt something as simple as doing up a screw properly , plus its on 2003 models.

    Defect Details: The air filter mounting screw/s may come out and lodge in the throttle valve. If this happens the vehicle does not reduce engine speed

    BWAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAhHAHaaaaa.....

    Hang on....

    Im buying a new Yammy on Saturday ummmm..........

      I'm sorry officer, it appears my throttle got stuck wide open. I was just on my way to the yamaha dealer to have the bike fixed so it doesn't happen.

                Well I guess there&#39;s no point recalling something that was just one big <strike>defect</strike> mistake right from the start.

                    Obviously the rider is defective too. Can&#39;t even use a search function!

                        Recalls are not always for huge issues, and a manufacturer that does a recall when not just for outright safety shouldn&#39;t be criticised for it.. But that said, this one is a nasty one. New technology never really used before in the R6 so no huge surprise everything was not 100% first time out, but of course it would have been nice for the problem not to be one with such huge consequences. Probably happened once somewhere in the world thus the recall but I am sure if it was common we would have heard about it well before this.

                          I don&#39;t know why people view recalls as a sign of poor quality or make such a big noise about it. Every brand out there has had a recall for something if you have a look. Its better the manufacturer has a recall for something that &#39;may&#39; go wrong than have it swept under the carpet like Mitsubishi was busted for several times (and probably still do) with internally known issues.

                          Occasionally there are recalls listed that just say what the fault is without saying the brand/model. This way they dont show up by search until you click on the link to see what it is for.

                          Eg. Rear Shock Absorbers (Insteasd of vehicle make and or model)

                          Product Make: BMW
                          Product Model: E60, 61, 63, 64, 65, 66 (BMW 5, 6, 7 Series variants)
                          Model Years From: 09.01.2006 to 26.04.2006
                          Defect Details: The lower rubber mounts may come loose from the rear shock absorbers. If this occurs , wheel guidance would be lost and, depending on the driving situation, it may no longer be possible to control the vehicle safely.

                          Current model BMW&#39;s.... didn&#39;t hear about that one all over the news unlike the VE Commodore recalls which were highly publicised. There are even recalls for Lamborghini and Bentley

                            Some people take the internet waayyy too seriously

                            And yeh, most of those honda ones are from the clowns in the cage factories. The only recent bike ones were for the lardwing and the 50cc chinese built scooters

                            And $50 for the first person to youtube a conversation with the constabularly that uses the "Throttle screw fell out and jammed my throttle open officer" excuse

                              There was that huge debacle with a fault that led to vehicles catching on fire, the manufacturers feeling that it would be more cost effective to be sued if the fault ever occurred than to recall...
