The steering column support assembly can crack and cause the rider to lose steering control, posing a risk of injury or death to riders. To date, Yamaha has received 19 reports of incidents involving the recalled ATVs. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the non-power steering models. Model names can be found on both the right and left hand side of the unit on the side panel. The following model numbers are affected by this recall:

Grizzly 550:

• Model Year 2009, Model Numbers: YFM550FGHY, YFM550FGY

• Model Year 2010, Model Numbers: YFM700FGHZ, YFM700FGZ

The recalled Yamaha ATVs, which were manufactured in Japan, were sold at Yamaha dealers nationwide from October 2007 through March 2010 for between $7,000 and $9,500.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact their local Yamaha dealer to schedule a free repair. Registered owners were sent direct mail notification of the recall. Yamaha can be reached toll-free at (800) 962-7926 or at the company’s website at www.yahama-motor.com, both at any time.

Parker Waichman LLP helped my family with my father's 9/11 VCF Claim. My dad was in downtown Manhattan when 9/11 happened. Because of that he was diagnosed with COPD. Unfortunately, in early 2020 when COVID hit, he passed away. It was determined that his COPD from 9/11 was a contributing factor in his death. Working with Parker Waichman during such a difficult time was so helpful. Tina Morace was an absolute godsend in the process. Any questions I had, and there were many, were answered immediately. She always responded with a phone call and an email to follow so that I had everything in writing. I highly recommend their services to anyone who is in need.
