Yamaha recalls 190,000 motorcycles

The Associated Press
Updated: 2:46 p.m. ET March 4, 2005DETROIT - Yamaha Motor Corp. is recalling around 190,000 motorcycles because the passenger seat can fall off the rear fender, federal safety regulators and the company said Friday.

The recall affects XV250, XVS11 and XVS65 motorcycles from the 1988-2005 model years, Yamaha spokesman Brad Banister said. The mounting hardware that connects the seat to the fender can loosen when passengers shift their weight, which eventually can cause the seat to fall off, according to a recall notice sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Banister said the company knows of two minor injuries caused by the defect. Banister said Yamaha decided to recall the vehicles after reviewing quality control reports on the motorcycles in Japan.

“We constantly monitor this sort of thing because we do care about the safety of our customers,” Banister said.

Yamaha will notify owners about the recall this spring. Dealers will replace the seat’s mounting hardware for free.
I'm guessing that this applies to the V Star 1100 and V Star 650. I don't know what the 250 is (Virago?).
