What are the defects?

The circuit resistance of the Accelorator Position Sensor (APS) and Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) in the wire harness may increase due to a defective ground connection between APS/TPS and ECU. Under this condition, incorrect electrical signals may be transmitted to the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and resulting in unstable engine idle speed and/or display malfunction codes (50 and/or 60).

What are the hazards?

In the worst case, the engine idle speed may become suspended around 3000 rpm while riding even if the throttle twist grip is released.

What should consumers do?

Contact your authorised Yamaha Dealer to set up an appointment to have your unit remedied free of charge.
