The fuel hose in some of the 2016 Yamaha Waverunner Personal Water Craft models may not be properly connected to the fuel tank and may disconnect while operating.
This will allow the fuel line to drop from its connection point and to leak inside the engine compartment of the interior hull.
KNOW YOUR MODEL AND MONITOR THE INTERNET FOR UPDATES
This fuel line problem could potentially cause the engine to stall or even cause a fire.
This could also cause an explosion if the fuel lines up with any sparking contact or high heat.
If the Personal Water Craft has been operated for a while, the engine block and exhaust pipe will be hot.
Yamaha Motor USA and the U.S. Coast Guard advise not to use the following models until returned to a dealer for inspection and repair:
