Yamaha R3 Recalled: Transmission & Oil Pump Found Faulty

Yamaha has recalled around 1500 R3’s worldwide due to transmission and oil pump faults. The statement has not yet been made official for India but it is feared that the CKD units from Thailand are to be covered under the same recall as they were also made within the same period.

The oil pump has a design flaw and it restricts the working of the engine plunger. Not just that, the bearing of the clutch plate are not as strong as they should be for a long time easy operation. This may lead to an immobile R3 at any time of its lifespan.

The components are the same which were shipped from Thailand and the chances of ignorance of this problem is zero from Yamaha Motors India. The replacement timings may vary according to the severity of the problem when treated at the Indian dealerships.
