I just found this piece from a foreign moto news site so I have no idea how accurate this is. Doesn't hurt to give your dealer a call anyways.

motorevue.com says around 1,387 Yamaha XSR 700 is being recalled because of a weakness in the wiring harness: "the key switch harness can wear out in case of prolonged friction against the Metal cable guide located at the steering column."

This includes the XSR 700 series serial numbers ranging from RM111 0000101 to RM111 0007414, XSR 700 serial numbers ranging from RM111 0001662 to RM111 0007114, XSR 700 serial numbers between RM121 0000101 and RM121 0000908 and finally the XSR 700 whose serial numbers are between RM121 0000182 and RM121 0000868.
This is all from google translate.

Hi all,
just had my recall. Only had the beaut for a week too. I'm told it's something to do with a sub headlight cable and it's propensity for corrosion. Uh.
Bit annoyed as it's 30 miles away and my deadlines are pretty bad at the mo. The joy of being freelance eh.

Still, gotta get it done and they are doing their best to make it easy.

Cheers dudes.

Crikey, I see what you mean. Naaaaassstttyyyyy!!

John876 seems to have had a good experience though. I'll talk to them about it before they have a go.
I'll let you know how I get on, it's in on Saturday.

Cheers for the heads up dude.

I've looked at mine and it seems totally fine, no jagged edges to rub through the cables or any signs of wear.... so perhaps it's only a few and they're just covering their backs.
I've done over 2k and i'll keep an eye on it, but i certainly won't be taking it in to be butchered:grin2:

As Chillyhead mentioned, mine went ok and looks the same as it would coming from the factory.

Maybe when you take the bike in, show the dealer the damage thread on this forum just so they know how not to do it!

Hi all, had mine done today and you wouldn't know the difference. Great job. Very tidy with some awesome wrapping of some extra cables too. Told the fellas there about the nasty job we've now all see the pics for, and they're saying that whoever did it couldn't have used the recall pack and just cut wires to reroute . Fingers crossed the poor fella got some joy out of complaining.

This site won't allow me to post the link, because I haven't posted enough.

However if you correct the text below (replace the 'xxx' with 'www'), it should get you there!

Hi mattswan2512.
I've tried posting the link but I'm too young a member. No inuendos please.

I typed yamaha bikes recall check into my browser and the yamaha modification checker was listed. Click on that, enter your vin number and it should tell you either way.

Apparently you are supposed to receive a letter, which I didn't, but the dealer gave me a call and arranged the mod.

Hope it helps mate.

Hi
they've moved a cable over to the other side of the headstock, I think from left to right, and popped some braiding along a cable or two coming up to the right handlebar. Not technical at all on my part but that's what is visible. I believe that they've changed a connector on the sub headlight loom too.

First class job on mine. I must have just missed out on having the mod done before pickup. Only had it a week before the call.

Get well soon mate.

Cheers all.

DIY fix

Having spotted a bit of chafing on the outer wrap of the vulnerable cable, I thought I'd better get on with my home-made fix. I stripped about 40mm off the outer sheathing from a length of 30amp cooker flex that I had in my 'will come in useful one day' store. It fits snugly over the offending metal hook and should prevent any further chafing. It would be better in black, I agree, but can't be seen when the bike is parked up on its side stand. It's a good tight fit and should stay in place. Better than some of the dealer fixes which feature earlier in this thread.

Hi all guys!
So, I've brought my bike to the official dealer in my town and had the recall done.
Now my bike came back, they did a really good job about the cables.. They totally moved my mirrors so i'll have to set them back in the right position again :(. But, what is annoying me, is that now when I ride the bike I hear a strange and "more metallic" sound from the engine, mostly when accelerating from 1st or 2nd gear to higher gears.
I honestly don't know if that's just my imagination or if the sound actually changed. Any suggestion?

I got my XSR today and yes, there is a recall for my bike! My Yamaha dealer did no tell anything about the recall before I called him this morning and told him this matter. When I picked up my new XSR, and left my traded SR400, and paid little money, he told that they had ordered all the parts needed for the recall. We decided to do that job when they are doing the first service at 1000 km. He told also that the recall takes 5.5 ours! What is your experience of that?
I am not very happy that they had not done this recall work before I bought the bike! This bike is MY2016 so there would had plenty of time to do the recall earlier!! They decided to leave the extra pain to the customer!
The bike felt fine after few km`s home!
