Yamaha Recalls Snowmobiles Due to Possible Fire Hazard

Yamaha is recalling about 2,500 snowmobiles due to the fuel hose joint that could possibly leak during operation and cause a fire.

This recall involves model year 2014 SR10R (SRViper), SR10RXS (SRViper RTX SE), SR10L (SRViper LTX), SR10LS (SRViper LTX SE) and SR10XS (SRViper XTX) snowmobiles and model year 2015 SR10LS (SRViper LTX SE) snowmobiles. They were sold in a variety of red, black, blue and white color combinations. The VIN number is stamped on the tunnel near the right side footrest. The letter E in the 10th position of the VIN number indicates that the unit was made in the 2014 model year, and a letter F in the 10th position indicates that the unit was made in the 2015 model year. The model number can be found on the lower left and right cowling just below the word “YAMAHA.”

There have been four reports to Yamaha of fuel leakage, however no injuries were reported.  If you have one of these snowmobiles, stop using them immediately and contact your local Yamaha dealer to schedule a free repair.
