Yamaha Motor Corporation USA is recalling 14,320 model year 2015-2016 Yamaha YZF-R3 motorcycles.
Engine vibration can cause the fuel tank mounting bracket to contact the fuel tank which, over time, may result in the tank leaking fuel.
A fuel leak in the presence of a ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.
