Latest Recalls from Transport Canada

Here's the most recent recalls from Transport Canada. They affect models by Aprilia and Yamaha. The Yamaha model affected is the Trailway 200; more commonly known as a TW 200.

The person writing the Aprilia recall must have had a thesaurus nearby: "could cause a litany of drivability concerns." My dictionary gives "a repetive series" as an alternate for litany. However you say it, sounds like it's something you should get fixed ASAP.


Transport Canada Recall # 2009064
Recall Date: 2009/03/02
Notification Type: Safety Mfr
System: Emissions
Manufacturer Recall Number:
Units Affected: 276
Make: APRILIA
Model SCARABEO 200

Model Year(s) Affected: 2008, 2009

Recall Details:

On certain scooters, should the fuel tank be overfilled, or the motorcycle be tipped-over on it's side, raw fuel may be allowed to enter the hoses of the evaporative emissions system. This could cause a litany of drivability concerns including: difficulty starting, random stalling, low power, reduced top speed, float bowl overflowing, etc. Engine stalling would result in lost propulsion which, in conjunction with traffic and road conditions, and the rider's reactions, could increase the risk of a crash. Correction: Dealers will re-route emission system hoses and replace the "Hose Routing Diagram" sticker.

Transport Canada Recall # 2009066
Recall Date: 2009/03/02
Notification Type: Safety Mfr
System: Suspension
Manufacturer Recall Number: M09-045
Units Affected: 1,948
Category: Motorcycle
Make: YAMAHA
Model: TRAILWAY 200

Model Year(S) Affected: 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000

Recall Details:
On certain motorcycles, the rear shock absorber lower mounting boss could fail. Should this occur while underway, the shock assembly could detach, allowing the rear suspension to completely sag, possibly resulting in a loss of vehicle control and a crash causing personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will replace the rear shock assembly with an updated version.
