Yamaha Recalls 2012-2013 XTZ12 Super Tenere Motorcycles. A Gap May Develop In the Protective Sealant Where the Lead Wires Of the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) and Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Connect To the Electronic Control Unit (ECU). This May Cause Corrosion On the Wires.

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA (Yamaha) is recalling certain 2012-2013 Yamaha XTZ12 Super Tenere motorcycles.

Over time, a gap may develop in the protective sealant where the lead wires of the accelerator position sensor (APS) and throttle position sensor (TPS) connect to the electronic control unit (ECU). This may cause corrosion on the wires, preventing the engine from returning to idle after the throttle is released.

If the engine does not return to idle when the throttle is released, it can lead to a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.

4,736 units are affected.
