Kawasaki Recalls ZR1000 and Ninja 650

By Cycle CanadaPosted on

 

Kawasaki has recalled its 2010 ZR1000 for a front brake hose positioning issue and 2009-2010 Ninja 650s for a fairing impediment to rear brake application.

Here is what Tranport Canada’s notice says about the ZR1000:

On certain motorcycles, under severe riding conditions the left front brake hose may contact left front brake rotor during extremely heavy application of the front brake. This can cause brake fluid to leak creating the potential for a crash resulting in injury or death. Correction: Dealers will inspect the front brake hose and replace it if required. Additionally, the front brake hose will be repositioned to prevent contact with the brake rotor.

The Ninja 650 recall says this:

On certain motorcycles, the right rear portion of the lower fairing can interfere with the operator’s footwear while applying the rear brake. This could diminish the operator’s control over brake force application or distract the operator, creating the potential for a crash resulting in personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will install an updated footrest guard and fairing bracket.
