Recall ordered an several models of Triumph motorcycles

Transport Canada has issued a recall on certain models of Triuimph motorcycles: the Bonneville T100, Street Twin, Bonneville T120 and Street Cup.

On certain motorcycles, the wiring sealing material of the fuel pump mounting plate could become damaged. This could allow for fuel to escape from the fuel tank and travel along the wiring toward the sub harness to the main harness connector, possibly resulting in an electrical short. 

This could lead to a fire, which could increase the risk of injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will install a revised wiring harness.

Recalled ordered on certain Jayco Anthem motorhomes

Transport Canada has also ordered a recall on certain motorhomes (model year 2016) manufactured by Jayco that may not comply with Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) 302, Flammability of Interior Materials. 

The mattress used in the vehicle does not meet the requirements of the standard, which could enhance the spread of a flame in the event of a fire and could result in injury and/or damage to property. 

Correction: Dealers will replace the mattress with a material that meets the requirements of the standard.

Recalled ordered on some models of Yamaha WR250R motorcycles

On certain Yamaha WR250R motorcycles (model year 2014), Transport Canada reports the clutch push lever oil seal may crack due to an incorrect assembly process. If that were to happen, engine oil could leak out, and could come into contact with the rear tire, potentially causing a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. 

Correction: Dealers will replace the clutch push lever oil seal with a new seal.
