Yamaha SRViper snowmobiles recalled due to defective brake line

Posted on June 26, 2015 1:44 pm under Recreational Vehicle Accidents

About 200 Yamaha SRViper snowmobiles are being recalled over fears that the vehicle’s brake line and its parts may come in contact with the clutch, increasing the risk of a serious crash, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported on June 30.

Two models are affected by the recall: 2015 SRViper L-TX with model number SR10LSFO, and 2015 SRViper M-TX 162 LE with model number SR10M62LFO. The recalled models were manufactured between February 2015 and April 2015. The vehicle identification number, which can be found on the panel near the right foot well, has the letter F in the 10th position, indicating that the snowmobile was manufactured in 2015.

No reports have yet been associated with the issue. Yamaha urges the affected customers to contact their nearest dealer for a free scheduled repair.
