Yamaha is recalling 180 YZF-R1, FZS600, and FJR1300 motorcycles from 2005 for a faulty throttle position sensor. Not all 2005 owners need to fret though, as the affected bikes were manufactured only between October 2004, and April 2005.

A faulty throttle position sensor could cause the motorcycle to stall, and result in a crash. Yamaha will be contacting affected owners, and replacing the throttle position sensor free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about October 7, 2009. Owners may contact Yamaha at 1-714-761-7300, or as always, the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153).
