Yamaha Issues Wiring Harness Safety Recall

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA is recalling 3,900 2014 Yamaha Bolt motorcycles manufactured between March 2013 and June 2013.  According to Yamaha, the motorcycles were manufacture with slack in the wiring harness, which may allow the wiring harness to contact the exhaust manifold, thereby causing the wires to melt and short circuit.  And, if the wires short circuit, the fuses will blow and this may cause the engine to stall.   
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that if a motorcycle's engine stalls while the vehicle is being ridden, this is extremely unsafe.  In fact, Yamaha itself even admits in the recall that when a motorcycle's engine stalls while the vehicle is being ridden, then there is an increased risk of a crash.

Do you own a 2014 Yamaha Bolt? Has the motorcycle stalled on you while driving?  Has the vehicle been in the shop repeatedly for repairs but it is still not fixed and is still stalling?  If you have a 2014 Yamaha Bolt that stalls while driving and it hasn't yet been in the shop, take it back to the shop repeatedly, document your complaints carefully, and if they don't fix your 2014 Yamaha Bolt within 3 attempts, you've probably got a lemon.
