A number of 2007 Yamaha Phazer models may display an â€œ88â€ error code, along with the warning indicator and the engine light. This indicates an open or short in the wiring of the reverse indicator switch. The machine can also turn on the reverse light and beep (like it is in reverse) although the machine is clearly moving forward. If this condition exists, reverse gear cannot be selected until the error code is not displayed.
Yamaha has identified a routing issue with the wiring for the reverse indicator switch, as a small number of units appear to have been assembled using a slightly different routing. Yamaha service should be able to assist dealers who encounter this situation.
