Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA (Yamaha) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Yamaha YZF-R3 F/G motorcycles manufactured January 1, 2015, to April 15, 2016. Due to an oil pump problem, the oil pressure in these motorcycles may not be properly regulated. As a result, the oil pump drive gear may fail and cause the engine to seize from lack of oil supply.

If the engine seizes from a lack of oil supply, the rear wheel may lock up suddenly, increasing the risk of a crash.

11,280 units are affected by this recall.

The recall began July 5, 2016. Owners may contact Yamaha customer service at 1-800-962-7926.
