WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period?
The customer’s responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services,
non-warranty repairs, accident and collision damages, and oil, oil filters, air filters,
spark plugs, and brake shoes.
What are some examples of “abnormal” strain, neglect, or abuse?
These terms are general and overlap each other in areas. Specific examples
include: Running the machine out of oil, sustained high rpm, full-throttle, operating
the machine with a broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail,
damage or failure due to improper or careless transportation and/or tie-down. If
you have any specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your
dealer for advice.
Does the warranty cover incidental costs such as towing or transportation due to
a failure?
No. The warranty is limited to repair of the machine itself.
May I perform any or all of the recommended maintenance shown in the Owner’s
Manual instead of having the dealer do them?
Yes, if you are a qualified mechanic and follow the procedures specified in the
Owner’s and Service Manual. We do recommend, however, that items requiring
special tools or equipment be done by a Yamaha motorcycle dealer.
Will the warranty be void or cancelled if I do not operate or maintain my new
motorcycle exactly as specified in the Owner’s Manual?
No. The warranty on a new motorcycle cannot be “voided” or “cancelled.” However,
if a particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than as
described in the Owner’s Manual, that failure may not be covered under
warranty.
What responsibility does my dealer have under this warranty?
Each Yamaha motorcycle dealer is expected to:
Completely set up every new machine before sale.
Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your
satisfaction at the time of sale, and upon your request at any later date.
Each Yamaha motorcycle dealer is held responsible for his setup, service and
warranty repair work.
Is the warranty transferable to second owners?
Yes. The remainder of the existing warranty can be transferred upon request. The
unit has to be inspected and re-registered by an authorized Yamaha motorcycle
dealer for the policy to remain effective.
