Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A. of Cypress, Calif., is recalling about 3,500 model year 2021 and 2022 Kodiak 700 All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs).

The vehicles are missing the “Maximum Loading Limit” label, which could cause loads and tongue weights that are too heavy for the vehicle’s trailer towing and hitch. This increases the chances of a crash and injuries; however, no incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves model years 2021 and 2022 Kodiak 700 ATVs, model number YWF700 FWB. KODIAK 700 is printed on the sides of the vehicle and the model number under the seat near the air cleaner.

The ATVs, manufactured in Japan, were sold at Yamaha dealers nationwide from October 2020, through April 2022, for between $10,500 and $11,500.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact Yamaha to receive a trailer towing and hitch weight label. The company is mailing the label with application instructions directly to consumers.

Consumers may also contact an authorized Yamaha ATV dealer to schedule a free label application. Yamaha is contacting all registered owners directly.

Consumers may contact Yamaha online or by phone at (800) 962-7926 for more information.
