Front Brake Issues ③

The oil pump of the engine plunger is said to have an inappropriate design due to which the prime mover may not function properly. Secondly, in the power transmission device, the strength of the bearing of the clutch pressure plate is insufficient. Clutch operation may damage the said bearings which is likely to render the motorcycle nonoperational. Lastly, due to the setup, the front brake hose may come in contact with the radiator during running and may cause the brake fluid to leak thus decreasing the braking force.

Yamaha Japan is currently fixing the issues on the affected models. Meanwhile, there is no official statement from Yamaha India for any recall of the YZF-R3 sold in the Indian market.
