      Yamaha Motor Corporation USA of Cypress, Calif., is recalling about 7,000 Yamaha recreational off-highway vehicles.

The model name (YXZ…) and “1000” is displayed in a graphic on both the left and right side of the vehicle.

       

      The vehicle identification number (VIN) is stamped on the frame near the driver’s side rear wheel. The letter G in the 10th position of the VIN number indicates that the unit was made in the 2016 model year.

       

      The vehicles, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at Yamaha side-by-side dealers nationwide from September 2015, to February 2016, for between $19,800 and $21,600.
