WHAT IS THE DEFECT?

In affected WaveRunners, a poorly installed sensor in the shut-off switch assembly may allow water to seep inside the sensor (switch housing) and become corroded, causing an intermittent connection.

WHAT ARE THE HAZARDS?

This may result in a malfunction with the engine shut-off switch, if the switch malfunctions, the engine may stop suddenly even though the lanyard is in place or the engine may not stop when the lanyard is pulled. Either case could result in loss of control and an accident with injury or death.

WHAT IS THE REMEDY?

To correct this defect, affected WaveRunners must have the Left-Hand Handlebar Switch Assembly replaced with a new one.

WHAT TO DO?

Parts will be available from June 2021; consumers are requested to contact your local Yamaha Dealer to set up an appointment to have your WaveRunner remedied free of charge.
